Possibly but it would be remiss of us to omit such a towering figure in British acting when we know she is ill.Apparently she has had dementia for 15 years which I didn`t realise until recently.

It seems so odd to me though. She always played these witty characters, and now she's lost her wits. Alzheimer is probably the worst thing that could happen to someone.

Maybe they are on their narrowboat and not keeping up with news.  A friend of mine has one and is often out of contact.

She is a tough one to judge.In canal journeys she seems ok but Tim is clearly prompting and covering for her very poor short term memory.Last year he said she had been slowly deteriating since around 2000 and was diagnosed around that time.That is a long time to have dementia and she is of course getting older now and could easily deteriate rapidly next year and would be an embarassing miss.I would say put her on next years list but far lower than 22.
