A daft idea which came to me - there are 8 people on this years Deathlist who have made eight appearances or more. Bedblockers if you will. (Though that's a bit mean, I like de Havilland, after all...)

 

So a simple poll - of our immortals, which one will be the last one standing, the one to outlive all the other seven? Fats Domino and Castro have youth on their side, but I wouldn't put it past Jake Lamotta to find a way...

Also need to note the last year people with 8 or more years who died was 2014... And 3 of those people passed that year, Mickey Rooney, Eli Wallach, and Chapman Pincher.

Went with Fats, but purely based on age. Surely, he'll die tomorrow.

I went with Vera purely based on active and engaged life at the moment - still chipper on Radio Four a few months back!

You mean age-wise? Or do you think she will morph into a male Eastern Asian linguist? :o

If he makes it to 2017, he'll only be the second person ever to get to 15 years on deathlist, with only Clive Dunn getting to 16.

That'd certainly end the 2016 Deathlist with a bang!
