    Having Daniella Westbrook as a therapist is like having June Brown as a stop smoking advisor.

    20 /20

    Had a new idea for a Dead Pool.Fortunately unlike Death by Numbers it will take less input from me.Basically aim of the game is to pick 20 candidates from the 1920`s.You need 2 from each year of the twenties from 1920-1929 and you must have one male and one female from each year.Candidates only qualify if they have a BBC national news article about their death and or an obituary The game carries on until we run out of names. As soon as one candidate from anyone`s list dies the pool will be immediately restarted and it is first come first serve. You can even be a bitch and steal someone`s entire list if you wish. It is a competitive game. The overall winner will be decided when there is universal agreement that a full list can no longer be made under the requirements. The pool restarts as soon as a link from the BBC is posted verifying age of the deceased (by their own standard).No two players can have duplicate picks and the age given on BBC will be accepted as soon as the article is published and pasted to this site.It has to be decisive at the time the news breaks. As soon as BBC give an age that matches the year of birth you have given them the pool will restart. If the age they give is different to the year of birth you don`t get a hit unless it is amended before another death that meets the criteria of a hit. Person with the most hits wins: Here`s my entry.No limit to how many teams can join Male Female 1920 Javier Perez de Cuellar Clarissa Eden 1921 King Michael of Romania Carol Channing 1922 Denis Norden Lillianne Bettencourt 1923 Shimon Peres Glynis Johns 1924 George H.W Bush Mary Warnock 1925 Hal Holbrook Dorothy Malone 1926 Fidel Castro Cloris Leachman 1927 Bhumibol Adulyadej June Brown 1928 Bruce Forsyth Ethel Kennedy 1929 Roger Bannister Betty Boothroyd

    Georgian Deadpool

    Sort of a reverse pool and the opposite of the Elizabethan Deadpool.Pick 50 names of living people born between 12th December 1936 and 5th February 1952.When the Queen dies the game ends and those with the most names still breathing is the winner.If there is a tie it will go to sudden death e.g if two teams still have 50 names alive the game will continue until one is down to 49. All entries must have their own wikipedia page as of today 17th March 2017. It is called the Georgian Deadpool as King George VI was the Queens father and Prince Charles will become King George when he is King.If Charles dies before the Queen the game is still valid but the title will be an epic fail. Entries open until 23:59 on the 20th April 2017.No entries will be accepted after this.Here is my team. 1)Prince Charles 2)Princess Anne 3)Donald Trump 4)Arnold Schwarzeneger 5)Bruce Springsteen 6)Jeremy Corbyn 7)Jane Seymour 8)Alan Johnson MP 9)Helen Worth 10)Twiggy 11)Paula Wilcox 12)Sherrie Hewson 13)Lesley Joseph 14)George W Bush 15)Elizabeth Warren 16)John Bowe 17)Peter Hain 18)John Nettles 19)Melanie Phillips 20)Peter Hitchens 21)Sharon Maughn 22)Michael Kitchen 23)Nigel Havers 24)Derek Hatton 25)James Mattis 26)Peter Gabriel 27)Wilko Johnson 28)Duncan Bannatyne 29)Jack Dromey 30)Harriet Harman 31)Martin Shaw 32)Peter Tatchell 33)Louise Jameson 34)Meryl Streep 35)Peter Frampton 36)Noel Edmonds 37)Brian Capron 38)Ben Carson 39)David Troughton 40)Jeff Sessions 41)Eugene Levy 42)Elaine Paige 43)Alison Steadman 44)Elizabeth Estensen 45)Graham Seed 46)Jack Straw 47)Virginia Wade 48)Duncan Bannatyne 49) Billie Jean King 50)Mitt Romney

    Linda Nolan

    Thought I would create a thread for Linda Nolan as she is a likely future Deathlist candidate. 58 year old singer with terminal breast cancer and previously fought the disease in 2006.

    George Alagiah

    The BBC newsreader George Alagiah has been diagnosed with bowel cancer for a second time.He was first diagnosed with Stage 4 bowel cancer in April 2014 which had spread to his lymph nodes and liver.Due to the presence of 8 tumours in his liver a substantial part was removed.He underwent 3 operations and nearly 18 months of chemotherapy.No news on the stage of his cancer or whether it has spread again this time but given the seriousness of the last cancer diagnosis it looks grim.Alagiah is 62 and has worked for the BBC for 29 years initially as a foreign correspondent covering Rwanda Afghanistan and Somalia.For the last 15 years he has been the presenter of BBC News at 6 (Most recently 15/1/18).He has also interviewed Desmond Tutu Nelson Mandela Robert Mugabe and Kofi Annan. Surely a possible future DL candidate if he lasts long enough ?

    Seeing as we have 10/10 20/20 40/40 and 50/50 I think we might as well have 30/30.Thos one will mirror Joey's 40/40.Simply pick 30 names born in the 1930's and first team with 30 Ddp obit scoring picks wins.Any non obiting pick can be replaced after 3 months. My team 1)John McCain 2)John Hume 3)Ray Wilson 4)Jacques Chirac 5)Trevor Peacock 6)Douglas Hurd 7)Dennis Skinner 8)Joanne Woodward 9)Gene Hackman 10)Eileen Derbyshire 11)Paula Tilbrook 12)Josephine Tewson 13)Bill Treacher 14)Stevie Chalmers 15)Charles K Kao 16)George Fernandes 17)Denis Goldberg 18)Clive James 19)Valerie Harper 20)Prunella Scales 21)Monica Vitti 22)Yoko Ono 23)Jeanne Little 24)Ernie Sigley 25)Peter Swan 26)Roger Hunt 27)Jack Charlton 28)Burt Reynolds 29)Robert Wagner 30)Sean Connery

    Theresa May

    Thought our embattled Prime Minister Theresa May deserves her own thread.Has no known serious ailments but is an insulin dependent type 1 diabetic who is under enormous pressure.Could the strain of presiding over a hung parliament along with dealing with an increasingly factional party whilst negotiating Brexit take a toll on her health?

    Thoughts and opinions on the death list 2019

    I don't see why the DL should ever die.If committee members drop out just replace them.Just need a group chat over the Internet would sort it out.No reason for it to die.

    2. Herman Wouk

    Wouk is the only centenarian on the list whose death is not big news in the UK.The other 3 would all get rolling news coverage on BBC and Sky news and their deaths are guaranteed to get a full segment on every news stations bulletins. Incidentally a neighbour of mines father was born on the same day as Wouk and is still alive.
  17. Sean


    Like 20/20 and 50/50 pick ten names from the 1910s.First player to have no picks left alive wins (no murdering picks though).Obit rules for this one are any. worldwide professional news souces (In any language) including local news sites.An online link must be provided and the provenance of the source verified.Blogs do not count.If a pick doesnt have a wikipedia profile please list who they are in your entry.Picks dont have to be unique and if it turns out that someone on your list wasnt born in that decade you can replace them.Fill your boots.Here is my team 1)Zsa Zsa Gabor 2)David Rockefeller 3)Ken Hechler 4)Huston Smith 5)Hutton Gibson 6)Clare Hollingworth 7)Irwin Corey 8)Brunhilde Pomsel 9)Roberta McCain 10)Lupita Tovar

    Elizabethan Deadpool II

    As the Elizabeth Deadpool has gone completely stagnant I thought I would try a different approach.The revamp looks like this.Pick 66 names born on or after 6th February 1952.All picks must have a wiki page as of today and will only score you a point if they gain a QO that would score in the Ddp.Unique picks score 3 points and duplicates score you one point.Each time a pick qualifies you get to replace a candidate so you always have 66 living picks currently in the game.Each time the Queen gains another year on the throne an extra pick can be added on.No swaps and the winner is the player with most points upon the date of the Queen's abdication or death. No swaps and all names must have a wiki as of 3/4/18. Entries open now until the Queen's reign ends.This will replace the Elizabeth Deadpool. My team: 1)Leah Bracknell 2)Ray Wilkins 3)George Alagiah 4)Bill Turnbull 5)Mike Peters (The Alarm) 6)Kenny Sansom 7)Shane MacGowan 8)Marieke Vervoot 9)Matt Cappotelli 10)Stefan Karl Stefannson 11)Dean Francis 12)Mark Gastineau 13)Vini Reilly 14)Eric Pickles 15)Lorna Luft 16)Christy Dignam 17)Linda Nolan 18)Val Kilmer 19)Colin Butts 20)Roseanne Barr 21)John Goodman 22)Christiane F 23)John Bain (Totalbiscuit) 24)DJ Casper 25)Ian Martin 26)Andrew Lansley 27)Lee Hsien Loong 28)Dave Anderson (Former UK MP) 29)Graham Allen 30)Karen Lumley 31)John "Cocksy" Cocks 32)Michael Moore 33)Michael Barrymore 34)Big Van Vader 35)Paul O'Grady 36)Harvey Weinstein 37)Nanci Griffith 38)Stephen Hillenburg 39)Pete Doherty 40)Kevin Spacey 41)David Van Day 42)Frank Miller 43)Mike Nolan 44)Nick Boles 45)James Brokenshire 46)Mr T 47)Mickey Rourke 48)Keith Vaz 49) Paul Gascoigne 50)Elaine Lordan 51)John Mann (Musician) 52)Wout Holverda 53)Fernando Ricksen 54)Tom Billington "Dynamite Kid" 55) Stephen Fry 56)Jane Campbell Baroness Surbiton 57)Jeremy Clarkson 58)Michael J Fox 59)Sinead O'Connor 60)Irrfan Khan 61)Doddie Weir 62)Nile Rodgers 63)Arthur Smith (Comedian) 64)Barry Du Bois 65)Ant McPartlin 66)Rosie O'Donnell
