Am I supposed to have heard of the poor fella who’s been on the front page of the BBC news all day?

He was no David Bryant!
Must confess, I'd never heard of him, but then, I'm not into fillums 'specially Hollywood ones. He did seem to have a decent body of work mind.

I don’t think the Queen Mother lasted as long on the main headline.

Couple of nights ago - in the wee small hours - the death of Gene Wilder was in the front page top ten most read on BBC News website. :shock:

The fact that he died a few years ago doesn't seem to matter much. Spose me clicking on it perpetuated it in the most read. :duh:

I reckon there's someone running their website who gets bored and brings obscure stuff to the front page just to see how many people notice. Fair play to him/her if true. :lol:

Diana Rigg - 83? Impossible.
I can't be the only one who remembers lusting after her in her Avengers days... can I?

Diana Rigg in the Avengers was before my time. 'Twas the New Avengers with Joanna Lumley when I was an adolescent.

Hagler was a monster. He destroyed Minter in short order.

David Cook a lower division prop -- former Lord Mayor -- when the job was awarded to gentlemen -- because in truth that was what he was -- despite being a Lawyer ( solicitor ) if you went to him professionally you never sensed the pound sign in the eyes -- he was there to help you. good bye my friend .
