    Robert Hardy

    If Super bloody Gran can get a thread when no one remembers if shes even alive, then surely one of our greatest living thespians can? Robert Hardy is the dean of British character actors. Best known for a long stint opposite Peter Davison (whom he mentored) in All Creatures Great and Small as vet Siegfried Farnon, he has also appeared in everything under the sun, except, peculiarly, Doctor Who. You might also recognise him from the Harry Potter films (Cornelius Fudge), and about nearly everything the BBC does with Churchill in it. He is now 90, is the type of person the Deathlist likes (think George Cole and Peter Sallis), and more pertinently, has began to sell off his beloved collection of antiques and historical items, which isn't something he'd do lightly. So whilst the Mail claims he is in good shape for 90, there's something causing him to downsize his most prized possessions. Besides, if Nicholas Parsons can get his own thread despite being the Healthiest Man in Britain...

    Johnny Carson Rip

    Johnny Carson has been battling emphysema for the last couple of years and has already had quadruple-bypass heart surgery. He could be a strong candidate for 2005. Who will ever forget his famous line - "Heeere's Johnny!"

    Charles Krauthammer

    The legendary syndicated political columnist Charles Krauthammer has "a few weeks to live" after a recurrence of abdominal cancer first diagnosed in August 2017 that has "spread rapidly".Thought he was famous enough for his own thread.

    Peter Ustinov

    Peter Ustinov is a good candidate for impending lack of life. Having seen recent documentaries about his life and career it's obvious he's looking very frail. He can't get around without the aid of a couple of sticks and he seems rather vulnerable. Surely a higher place (top 10) next year for the British film hero? A sure bet for 2004 methinks.

    Lady Bird Johnson

    I have been informed within the past two days that the death of Lady Bird Johnson is indeed imminent. The 92-year-old former first lady could become a major miss for the list.

    Gretchen Franklin

    I see from the Wiki, that she is a cousin of the actor Clive Dunn, no less. Perhaps a bit of family competitiveness might be triggered.

    Oliver Postgate

    Creator of "The Clangers","Ivor the Engine", Noggin the Nog" and the animated acme that is "Bagpuss" 81 this year, no bad health issues as far as I know, but I don't care I just want him to have his own thread. You tell 'em Ollie, Jones the Steam proletariat everyman knows the truth. Bagpuss had more wisdom in his saggy old head, than Tony Blair and this entire government have in their combined bonces.

    Matt Cappotelli

    The thread for Matt Capotelli. a promising young wrestler who lost his promising career to a brain tumour in 2006.Now battling stage Iv glioblastoma diagnosed nearly a year ago.Treatment was discontinued 3 weeks ago.
  19. This is a bit "left-field", but Leonid Stadnick (Ukraine) should be considered for forthcoming DealthLists. Although he's only in his late 30s, he is currently the world's tallest man. His height appears to have now stopped at 8 ft 5ins, although earlier estimates have gauged him as reaching 9ft+. I'm not sure what happened over the last year to stop his growth, but THINK he had brain surgery (or treatment) to suppress a pituatry anomoly. From documentaries etc, he appears in pretty good health, however the increased mileage of bloodflow around his body places a huge burden on his heart. Personally, I hope he bucks the Giantism trend (of dying young).
  20. Darrell "Dimebag" Abbott of heavy metal band Damageplan, and formerly of Pantera, was gunned down last night at a show in Columbus, Ohio. The gig was part of the band's perhaps unfortunately titled "Devastation Across The Nation" tour. At least four other less famous people were also killed. http://www.antimusic.com/news/04/dec/item07.shtml

  24. Why this one slipped through the net amazes me. He used to live up the road and my sister was mates with one of his daughters at school. Ed Bishop Ed Bishop, who died on Wednesday aged 72, was one of some 300 North American actors whose careers are spent in London. In the course of almost 50 years he appeared on television and radio, as well as in films. If he never achieved star status, his pleasing stage presence and distinctive tones, slightly tuned for British ears, meant that he was often the first man to whom directors turned whenever an American was needed. At the same time he was in demand for TV commercials; and it was no disadvantage that his voice bore a resemblance to that of President John Kennedy. Ironically, although no great enthusiast of science fiction, Bishop was much sought after for sf films. He played Commander Ed Straker in the 26 episodes of Gerry Anderson's series UFO, for which he was made to dye his dark hair blond. He provided the voice of Captain Blue in the puppet series Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons and also appeared in the films Battle Beneath the Earth, Doppelganger, Saturn 3 and Stanley Kubrick's 2001 - though in the latter most of his performance as a Pan Am shuttle pilot was cut. The son of a Manhattan banker, he was born George Victor Bishop in Brooklyn, New York, on June 11 1932. He went to Peekskill High School, before studying briefly at teachers' training college then joining the United States Army, which sent him to St John's, Newfoundland; there he became disc jockey with Station VOUS and gained his first acting experience with the St John's Players. After being discharged, young George enrolled at Boston University to study Business Administration, then switched, despite strong protests by his parents, to a drama course at Boston University. This led to a Fulbright grant to study at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art, where he adopted the first name Ed, to distinguish himself from an established actor. He expected to return to America in a few months, but after meeting film actors in Soho, he decided to stay: "I was here in London for the duration." Bishop's first professional appearance was in Granada Television's Edge of Truth. He played a sailor in Look Homeward, Angel at the Pembroke Theatre, Croydon, before joining the West End production of Bye, Bye Birdie. Stanley Kubrick then cast him as an ambulance driver in Lolita. After marrying his second wife Hilary Preen, whom he had met in Trafalgar Square, Bishop made his debut on Broadway, as an Englishman in David Merrick's production of The Rehearsal with Coral Browne. He then returned to London, where he attracted considerable attention as John Kennedy in Joan Littlewood's stage production of MacBird. On film, he played Colonel Vogt in The War Lover with Steve McQueen (1962); appeared with Robert Mitchum and Trevor Howard in Man in the Middle (1964); and had parts in the Bond features Diamonds are Forever and You Only Live Twice. In addition, there was regular television work in such series as The Saint and The Baron. In the early 1970s he went to Hollywood, where he appeared in the animated series Star Trek and starred in Pets (1974). But he now felt "something of a Brit". In addition to film roles in Britain, he appeared in the TV series Dick Turpin, Colditz and Whoops Apocalypse and gave a notable radio portrayal of Raymond Chandler's Philip Marlowe, outshining many big screen stars. A non-smoking, non-drinking supporter of CND and the Green Party, Ed Bishop is survived by his third wife Jane Skinner, whom he met while dressed up as General Pinochet in a demonstration against the arms trade, and by three daughters; a son died in a car crash.
