    Linda and Anne Nolan were both interviewed on Channel 4's "Steph's Packed Lunch" today - they both appeared to look fine.

    Derby Dead Pool 2021

    Right at the beginning of the year I noticed that there were precisely 20 people that matched a certain criteria, and they would make an excellent theme team, as all are certainly able to produce a QO, and they're all getting on in years. Plus there's a few members who are likely to be unique picks should I chose them. If only I'd though of them a day or two before! Anyway one member of that group passed on recently, so I'm ruing that chance even more now. I'm not saying what the criteria is, as I hope to submit the list next time, assuming that more people make the list before the end of the year.

    It could just be for a feature of one of the TV shows he works for - he's done health related things when appearing on Channel 4's "Steph's Packed Lunch".

    Stanley Baxter was in ENSA during the war, I believe.
  5. Diabetes I believe - he's had the condition for some time.

    I've got a box here of her first ten albums - she did the cover art for six of them.

    1. Prince Philip Duke Of Edinburgh

    Having since seen the broadcast, it looked like footage from an editing session had somehow been switched onto the live feed.

    Apparently within the past hour BBC Scotland's television coverage of Nicola Sturgeon's testimony was suddenly cut to archive footage of Prince Philip. Has he pegged it?

    1. Prince Philip Duke Of Edinburgh

    Perhaps there's not really much wrong with Philip, and it's all just a ruse to delay the broadcast of Megan's interview with Oprah Winfrey scheduled for this weekend?

    If it's the one I think it is it's just a dull sport interview.

    Does that mean he'll be bringing back his Hitler Moustache tour?

    Archie McPherson

    He's well known in England too. He used to appear in a couple of inserts within Grandstand each week - one previewing the upcoming Scottish games, and the other offering a match report during Final Score.

    Welcome to Jackass

    I got 32 points in 2018 when my joker TT racer William Dunlop crashed in a minor motorcycle race. The following year I purposely picked for my joker another TT racer whose birthday happened to occur during TT fortnight - only for all racing on that day to be cancelled due to bad weather.

    Alf Patrick certainly did serve - he was in the Royal Engineers.

  20. Choice one never made the final cut in the end, although I may keep them for next year if things get worse. I found some info on them in late December which seems to indicate that they're not in a really bad way at the moment. Choice two was indeed Robert Powell. I noticed him making a charity appeal during one commercial break, and he looked awful. I've not seen that commercial since, and they may have pulled it as broadcast regulations prevent commercials airing if anyone appearing in it has recently died - (or at least they used to). Choice three is Dave Edmunds. He was missing from a BBC4 documentary on a recording studio that aired early last year, despite making a major contribution to the workings of that studio. I assumed something was wrong, so decided to add him. I've already spotted someone suitable for next year - they've stopped doing voiceovers for something all of a sudden. Of course it may simply be that their contract expired at the end of last year, or they've been prevented from doing so due to lockdown/shielding issues. I've got 11 months to find out!

    Derby Dead Pool 2021

    Just checked my list, everything seems to be in order, with 5 unique picks. There's something seriously amiss with the Arthur's Theme Theme Team with many duplicate entries.

    The D-A-CH-DeathList 2021

    I'd go for the skier Hanni Wenzel. She won two gold medals and a silver at the 1980 Winter Olympics.

    Derby Dead Pool 2021

    Submitted my entry at least. Had to make several more changes over the past few days, dropping one good pick until next year.

    Bill Clinton

    There's some rumours flying around that's he's died, but it won't be announced until the weekend. It's most probably nonsense.
