My goodness it's all a bit confusing because the Wiki name and generally used name has been extended in the DDP - I guess with the family name.

 

Definitely need more Latin Americans on the Forum to help with these!

Well, I do not want to act like a smaet aleck, but DDP sorts Spanish people by the (last) mother's name and most Russian people by the (second) father's name.

 

Maybe this is compensatory justice.

Kay Hawtrey, Canadian actress died yesterday (27th June) at the age of 93 according to an edit that has now been reverted.

Seems to have taken on mainly minor roles. Appeared in Police Academy 4 and was one time married to English actor John Clark (b. 1932).

Not actually Wikipedia but the Dr Who Guide claims Children of the Stones co-writer Trevor Ray died in 2019. Anyone seen anything to back this up at all? My search skills are failing at it.

 

Can confirm via a query to DWM that Trevor Ray died in December 2019. So the Doctor Who Guide is correct.

Sydney Lotterby supposedly dead at 93.

Big time BBC producer – Last of the Summer Wine, Porridge, Some Mother Do Ave Em, The Liver Birds, Yes Minister, Yes Prime Minister, Up Pompeii!, Open All Hours, As Time Goes By... and so on and so forth.

Won four BAFTAs and received an OBE so expect an obit within a day if it's true.

Donald Prell supposedly dead at 96.

Quite an interesting guy. A WWII veteran and prisoner of war held by Nazi Germany. Later became an author, venture capitalist and futurist, pushing innovation in the computer software sector.

Metro carries the story as does British Comedy Guide

Going through the DDP emails, some brought up this Wiki edit for broadcaster turned Yewtree jailbird Stuart Hall last year as its by "a normally reliable editor". Now I'm reasonably sure Hall's death would have been major news but I'll pop this here in case anyone gets bored and wants to outright debunk it. Or find out he did somehow die of pneumonia to  a badly worded edited on Wiki and no one noticed...:D

Smells like a hoax for all the reasons you suspect but also because after his date of death it says he "is" - that's really shit editing if it's kosher
