This year apparently is a very slow-moving affair. I guess the current virtual leader is the team that made Jimmy Snuka its joker - so that's 20 pts.

It is, but unlike 2014 and 2010 it has the sense of the quiet before the storm to me. An awful lot of proper topplers, just a case of when.

I suspect this year will be one where mid-to-late year comes heavily into play. There's still a batch of folk - Coward, Nevin, most Shameless-type picks - who I can't see surviving the first quarter, but there's also plenty of "could go tomorrow, could go in November" names, along with a handful of the "50/50 to die this year, but if they do go it'll be in the later months" variety.

 

Though then again, that final category was how I felt about Farren, Ford, and Cruyff last year...

Aye. Just for the future LOLs.

 

 

  • Downie - feels like a March time death for me, ala Joey Feek.

  • Alan Aspin - before March.
  • Leah Bracknell - August
  • Colin Butts - October/November
  • Errol Christie - April
  • Sara Coward - March
  • Rayya Elias - July
  • Greg Gilbert - If he goes, November/December time.
  • Anna Holmlund - don't think she will now.
  • Sasha Lakovic - February.
  • Tracy McGiffin - July ala Bernie.
  • Catherine Nevin - March
  • Simon Ricketts - May
  • Dr Mark Sims - before end of January
  • Stefan Karl - If he goes, December.
  • Steve Sumner - May
  • Ben Suisala - April (ala Ms Hill)
  • Joost van der Westhuizen - if he goes November/December time.
  • Paul van Zandvliet - March
  • Smith Hart - December
  • Paul McGill - March
  • Peter Skellern - October
  • Steve Hewlett - feels a October onwards...
  • Lisa Magill - February
  • Colin Meads - August after some WTF from posters.
  • Rena Salmon - 2030.
  • Valerie Spiridinov - December
  • John Wetton - April
  • Sara Hankins - about 3 hours after DI's executee dies on the Deathrace...

And all of the Deathlist 50 for 2017 are picked in the 2017 DDP.

Don Budge is a big surprise, iirc he was clearly on the way out as the new year rolled around and was a de rigeur pick on Stiffs and the US dead pools at the time?

He had a car crash in late December 99 and was in a bad way according to the main page, but 2000 was back when the DDP only had about 30 hits a year. Notably as soon as the Deathlist wins the DDP, the hit rate shoots up and there's only one non DDP/Deathlist crossover hit after that.

On this day (using only the final contenders per year...)

 

2016

  1. Spade Cooley 52
  2. Sir Creep 52
  3. Death Impends 37
  4. Heading Nowhere 33
  5. Gcreptile 32
  6. Pan Breed 29
  7. Golden slumbers 24
  8. DDT 22

    Key moments so far: Spade nabbing Grizzly due to a hunting lodge newsletter, DDT’s slow start (it wasn’t slow for much longer though), Sir Creep’s dazzling start, and some Glaswegian chap blowing the DDP by not picking Monty Brinsom and Geoffrey Hudgens, and not even realising it at the time...

 

 

2015

  1. Death Impends 20
  2. Spade Cooley 15
  3. DDT 12

    Key moments so far: DDT nabbed 12 points on a unique dying terrorist (that wouldn’t happen nowadays!), and DI took an early lead with a pair of really old picks. Age, jokers and timing was to prove crucial in 2015.

2014

  1. Spade Cooley 35
  2. DDT 12
  3. Drunkasaskunk 12

    Key moments so far: This was the year Spade put everyone's research to blame, with an early insurmountable lead (as it turned out) based on a conductor, a famous for dying case that no one else twigged, some chap off the radio and an American poet – one unique and three people picked by less than five people each.

 

 

2013

  1. OoO 37
  2. Crossing the Styx 26
  3. This Mortail Coil 22
  4. DDT 21
  5. Death Impends 14

    Key moments so far: Odstock had exploded into an early lead, and looked unstoppable in the early going. Crossing the Styx, previously a theme team, were his nearest challengers, and This Mortal Coil had made an early start. In fact, TMC had nabbed OoO’s joker, preventing it being a unique – those 6 points and one somewhat crucial mistake in summer were to prove unexpectedly game changing at this point in time. As for Spade? He had 7 points. Probably needed to wait till next year...

2012

  1. DDT 24
  2. Norfolk and Good 7

2011

  1. DDT 38

    I think his nearest challengers (in the loosest sense of the word, him finishing 31 points ahead of the rest) were asking TMIB if it was time to start yet...

 

 

2010

  1. Canadian Paul 23
  2. DDT 16
  3. OoO 14
  4. Banshees 14
  5. Tonight Matthew 14
  6. Rot in Hell John 7
  7. If I’m Spared Myself, Of Course 7
  8. Impaled on the Antlers 7

    We finally had a title race of sorts! DDT only got 6 picks all year, but such is 2010 he’s ahead of all the final contenders at this point. OoO was the only one of that years top 7 not to pick Zelda Rubinstein, whose death brought some life into the game. But then OoO nabbed 14 points on Dr Willie Stanton – remember that case? In a very slow moving DDP, jokers proved crucial. Canadian Paul with the early lead among the contenders, and a big beast of the Deathlist forum at that time, though soon to leave deadpooling due to real life commitments.

    Can’t help but feel the sedate and leisurely 2010 DDP was a right rotten outlier for a new host. Bit like taking your kid to see your no hopers during a promotion season, and they become fans thinking it’s always like this...

 

 

2009

  1. Heaven Knows They’re Miserable Now – 53
  2. DDT – 21
  3. No Noose is Good Noose – 21
  4. Banshees – 21
  5. Tonight Matthew 11
  6. Impaled on the Antlers – 11

    Shame about the lack of a title race here, HKTMN must have the whole thing sewn up...

 

 

2008

  1. The Man in Black 35
  2. DDT 26
  3. Godot’s Waiting List 26
  4. Wormer 20
  5. Canadian Paul 18
  6. Banshees 18

    TMIB nabbed 6 hits by this point, including 2 uniques, and was 48 hours off one of the great scoops – a terminally ill Hollywood A-lister which had managed to go under the radar of the Deathlist forum, the Deathlist itself, and all but one random other DDP team. Roy Scheider if you were wondering... DDT being so close with only 3 picks dead and a whole host of toppling terminals left was ominous enough...

 

 

Might continue on this at the start of each month this year if I find the time, some of it is unexpectedly fascinating. Poor HKTMN though, that's going to be an incredible collapse...

A little later I had my finest moment - topping the DDP table with 31 points. Never repeated since.

I still have the screenshot .... :lol:

I kept a screenshot of when I went 47 points clear in 2011. At the time I thought I was a bit of a freak, but now realise everybody else just needed to raise their game.

 

Nice to see my name appear on all the lists going back to 2008...The other stat I like is that I've led (if now won) the DDP in seven out of the last nine years, although I'm unlikely to do it again this year. One more random stat, I've scored a unique pick seven years in a row and I'm really hoping to extend that record

So 2016 was not an exception at the top, but more by the breadth of it.

 

But this breadth will increase this year again.

 

Edit: Ah, Shameless isn't in there. I should have made a screenshot of the moment I had 2 teams in the top 5.

TMIB nabbed 6 hits by this point, including 2 uniques, and was 48 hours off one of the great scoops – a terminally ill Hollywood A-lister which had managed to go under the radar of the Deathlist forum, the Deathlist itself, and all but one random other DDP team. Roy Scheider if you were wondering... DDT being so close with only 3 picks dead and a whole host of toppling terminals left was ominous enough...

 

Schieder was probably my greatest individual hit and 2008 my best year (although I finished in 6th, one place below my debut year in 2006). That was pure research snagging him. I was proud of the Rowan Ayers pick as I was a big fan of his son, Kevin...I never returned to that kind of form again.

Quite embarrassingly, I've never twigged that family connection before!

 

And yeah, you got a bit distracted by becoming The Keeper of Traken!

 

 

Note for Non-Whovians: The Keeper of Traken dealt with all the mind numbing boring stuff and conflict on his aforementioned planet so everyone got to enjoy the prosperity and fun. Then the Master killed him, while also destroying the entire planet, and its solar system, which is where this analogy turns unintentionally dark...

Might continue on this at the start of each month this year if I find the time, some of it is unexpectedly fascinating. Poor HKTMN though, that's going to be an incredible collapse...

 

March variant then.

 

On this day (using only the final contenders per year...)

 

2016

Death Impends 80

Heading Nowhere 77

DDT 72

Pan Breed 72

Spade Cooley 71

Sir Creep 71

Bert 62

Gcreptile 61

Crossing the Styx 45

A shake up in that quiet year, as Death Impends and a host of others cashed in big joker points on Ms Feek, including yours truly who was “proper gobsmacked” at such a lofty position in the table. Phil Gartside’s death was a very rare case of all the chasers bar Spade guessing the outcome of a private battle correctly. Louise Plowright, only picked by DDT and Bert of the main contenders, was another What If.

 

 

2015

Death Impends 34

Spade Cooley 32

DDT 19

The game was chugging away, with all 3 picking Bob Benmosche. Spade made up a fair bit of the gap with Ahmad “Real” Givens, who just seems like a quintessential Spade Cooley pick, really!

2014

Spade Cooley 35

DDT 22

Drunkasaskunk 19

DDT didn’t have a great 2014 but he still pulled a unique hit on a Belgian opera director to remain in contention early. Also in the unique game was Drunkasaskunk with a really old Scottish painter.

 

 

2013

OoO 69

DDT 55

Death Impends 55

Crossing the Styx 51

This Mortail Coil 39

Spade Cooley 22

I’ll be honest, I stopped paying attention to the DDP this year as I was doing fucking shite, and took Odstock’s victory as fait accompli, so when people started congratulating Spade I was highly confused. The above helps show why...  Death Impends got his first unique (Tony Sheridan).

2012

‘arry-Kiri 35

Spade Cooley 33

DDT 24

Norfolk and Good 13

‘appy ‘arry’s lot took the lead, and scored on Frank Carson, a Deathlist 2012 tip by yours truly. They ignored him and my other one, Sid Waddell, who I’m sure paid their faith back handsomely...

2011

  1. DDT 38

    DDT had a quiet month. I think a challenger came with 20 points of him at one point...

 

2010

If I’m Spared Myself of Course 31

Canadian Paul 23

Tonight Matthew 22

‘arry-Kiri 17

DDT 16

Rot in Hell John 15

Impaled on the Antlers 15

Banshees 14

OoO 14

It’s a lead among the contenders for Toast! She had a unique dying restaurant owner in her team.

 

 

2009

Heaven Knows They’re Miserable Now – 61

DDT – 55

Banshees 29

No Noose is Good Noose – 21

Tonight Matthew 19

Impaled on the Antlers – 19

HKTMN racks up another hit with Wendy Richard. Procession...

Or it would be if DDT hadn’t picked up a 26 point joker!

 

 

2008

Godot’s Waiting List 58

The Man in Black 57

DDT 52

Banshees 27

Canadian Paul 24

Wormer 20

 

 

TMIB nabbed 9 hits by this point, and yet it was the Jeff Healey pick that brought DDT and Godot back into the frame.
