Aw, feck. I used to love his stuff. He was one of the few kids' comics cartoonists from back then whose name I knew, as he popped up at least once in his own strips.

Actor Donald Moffat - maybe best known to us lot as Garry from 'The Thing' - age 87. Easily my favourite cast member of one of the greatest films ever.

Poor old Paddy Pantsdown. I always liked him - he seemed like he had his head screwed on.

Indeed, personal indiscretion (the only mistake of his career as far as i’m aware of) he seemed a rarified respectable politician.

... personal indiscretion (aside)

Ashdown had a history of entering into ill-advised couplings with undesirable partners*

* Blair never gave the Lib-Dems the PR referendum they were promised in return for getting him elected. They'd have to wait until 2011, when Dave Cameron wooed the similarly guileless Nick Clegg with another tempting opportunity to prop up a vainglorious idiot obsessed with legacy, who would balls up the only really important decision they had to make during their entire time in office. The UK did not adopt a system of proportional representation and now we are where we are.

Very saddened to hear June Whitfield has died. 93 is a good age but still, doesn't seem right that she's no longer with us. What a great career she had.

Recap of the year's deaths - there's a few I either missed or have forgotten about there.  Not a good year for children's TV or punk/post-punk/new wave music, amongst other spheres.
