Don't know if anyone ever mentioned this here and even the newspapers only mentioned it shortly without using the word "suicide", but the cause of death WAS suicide, a gunshot wound to the head, no foul play.

Wasn't he a DDP, I seem to recall?

If so, that person deserved three more points, I guess. Ah well...

 You learn something every day. I never knew Holt was related to Derbyshire. Probably explains why she retired from Corrie to help care for her husband.

Total bullshit post by me. The dogwalker survived and so did the dogs. Apologies.

Most marginal person I ever allowed in the Death By Numbers. Picked last year.

 

She was asked about as a DDP pick but decided against.

 

iirc the ruling was IF they had an imdb page with actual credits they wouldn't be turned down, but did they sound like they would ever QO?
