A close one: BBC but not co.uk

 

https://www.bbc.com/pidgin/tori-56276324

Always wondered whether Pidgin might scrape the language qualification.

 

Surprisingly with BBC.com it usually converts to bbc.co.uk here, in this case, not.

Thanks Willz, now updated. Also the List of the Lost.

 

 

Also apparently we need a QO for Morris Perry, FAO any passing obituary writers...

 

Incidentally as I've switched on the data section, I can tell you the 7 most read DDP front page obits in September 2021 are: Sarah Harding, Charlie Watts, Robert Fyfe, Michael Constantine (!!),  Jimmy Greaves, Clive Sinclair and Gerd Muller. So, folk who show up on the front tracker and the most recent update, who knew! Oh, and the new Archive is apparently ridiculously popular.

Harding will be my hit #8

 

And Gilbert is hit #9 and I enter top 10. 

 

Tom Parker, Tom Smith, James Whale, Linda Nolan, Olivia Newton-Jon, Shannen Doherty, David Gulpilil, Tim Bilton, Ady Barkan, Bill Turnbull and George Alagiah are still alive but I doubt they all can trick death this year. I think I might have solid chance to finish in top 10 this year.

As mentioned in the Deaths in 2021 thread, charity fundraiser Jean Bishop, known as the Bee Lady of Hull, has died aged 99.

Picked in the DDP in 2014 so a miss.

BBC obit and ITV obit.

Her funeral notice gives a date of death of 3rd October. Her DOB, should you need it, was 13/5/1922.

They should all do that because I still have 9 out of that 11 on my DDP main team! :rolleyes:

Sure. That might be the case. But still I believe that at least 1 or 2 will drop dead before the end of the year.

Somehow only a little more than two months left of the year. Which means the first sign of the front page transfer is now up...
