Sounded OK on Just A Minute but did seem to get confused at one point.

New series. Again St Nicholas sounds OK* but doing the advanced age thing of slurring words together. However, I note that last years Just a Minute wasn't a solitary case, with 2019 public appearances cancelled "due to ill health". Time for him to return to the list in 2020, imo.

 

*Actually, bloody brilliant given most folk his age!

Most folk his age aren't folk anymore.

Gyles Brandreth tweeted that he spoke to Nicholas and he expects to be out of hospital in a couple of days.

 

Hopefully not in a box.

Took a trip through Nicholas' IMDB, just to see whether I could narrow down a cinema release film where he was the last survivor.

 

Thanks to the longevity of folk like Gudrun Ure, Leslie Phillips, Bernard Cribbins, Michael Craig and others, and also the seemingly endless screed of untraceable minor role actors who stopped acting years ago or only appeared in one film...I could not find one. I mean even Frazer Hines played an urchin in one!

I tried the same for Kirk Douglas. Was shocked at how many of his co-stars are still about, even if 75-80% are gone.

How will his favourite Paul Merton manage on Just A Minute when Nicholas Parsons is no longer able to chair the show?
