Discovered by way of some research into her deceased husband that Drusilla Beyfus is still alive (b.1927 and probably obitable, at least good enough for the low hanger pools)

She seemed to be on the telly a lot when I was little.  Or possibly it was radio panels.

I knew but that's because his reason for leaving Newsnight in 2014 was that as he was pushing 65 he wanted to reduce his workload.

 

I think he genuinely enjoys doing University Challenge, but other than that he picks and chooses limited stuff to do now.

 

The only way you can really tell he's aging so far is that his hair is getting whiter.

I like how in the local obit someone named "Mr. D. F. msc" is trying to find out what she died from:

Apparently, he finds it out but gets nothing but harsh replies...
