Another 'Great Escape' Actor gone. :'(

That Scotland should lose its greatest cultural icon - Shuey the cook from Crossroads - at this crucial juncture in our history is surely an omen of some kind.

Earlier this week, one of the great 'Dunedin Sound' musicians from NZ's Flying Nun label, Peter Gutteridge. Late of The Clean, The Great Unwashed, The Chills (though virtually nothing of his input survives) and his own outfit, Snapper.
The views above are entirely my own. And there's the problem.

It's all right, that's in every contract.
That's what they call a sanity clause.
You can't fool me, there ain't no sanity clause.

Damn shame - she was one of my favourite companions ever.

 :(

I knew she had been ill for a long while but still, this is sad news. She was one of the best Doctor Who companions. Ever.

Time for a re-listen, methinks

An old-school, no-bullshit, boys-own action/adventure comic reminiscent of the 2000ads and Eagles and Warlords and Battles and other glorious black-and-white comics that were so, so cool in the 70's and 80's - Buy the hardback Christmas Annual!

Geoffrey Holder - Baron Samedi in Live And Let Die. He was the only Bond villain to freak me out as a kid especially in the voodoo ceremony scene in the graveyard.

Holy FUDGE, yes. Especially when his eyes look up at that hole just blown in his head by Roger's .44 Mum.
Not sure if pervert or cheesecake expert.

Jack Potter aged 93

He was a letterer who amongst other things, worked on the prog on a lot of the early top thrills!

Quote
Always uncredited, his name only became known to a wider audience through his work in 2000AD, although much of his initial work on "Invasion", "Flesh" and "Dan Dare" predated the arrival of credit boxes. He was also an early letterer on "Judge Dredd", notably the "Robot Wars" and "The Day the Law Died" storylines.

Thanks for that. Not a bad innings, it must be said. I'd always thought 2000AD having two letterers called Potter was a coincidence, never suspecting that Steve was Jack's son…!

This and your meta-ichabod proves you have the gift!
