Great actor and, by all accounts, a top bloke.

Yes, unfortunate news about Rene Auberjonois, he seems to have been one of those actors who made any character he played a memorable one. :'(

Very sad news about Rene Auberjonis. I remember at the beginning of DS9 I wasn't thrilled with Odo but by the end he was one of my favourites. He always brought an unexpected depth to any character he played. RIP.

Roxette singer Marie Fredriksson has died. The Grim Reaper has it in for the entertainment world it seems.

Ah, bloody hell. They had some really nice pop songs and I really fancied her when I was a young lad.

To the best of my knowledge the only famous graduate from my university. I think that now makes me the most famous of their alumni.* I absolutely did not do in David Bellamy for that reason.

I had other reasons.

* Which tells you more or less everything you need to know about how shit my university was.

I was lucky enough to meet David Bellamy briefly back in the early '80s, when peatland conservation was becoming a thing over here and he was lending his huge profile to the cause. He was extremely patient with an over-serious pre-teen badgering him, and helped cement a nascent love of wetlands which kept me busy and sometimes employed in all sorts of strange jobs through to the mid-90s. He was alright, he was.

Chewing over his passing this evening, we were debating his age. "Anyone who Lenny Henry impersonated on Tiswas is by definition pretty old", I opined. The missus replied:  "And as for people who watched Lenny Henry impersonate people on Tiswas..."

RIP David.

Ah, man. See you, David.  Didn't he appear in The Cursed Earth? Also I think he'd always wanted to be buried in an Irish peat bog, so either he'll be very well preserved in a couple of thousand year's time, or he'll be inside my stove warming my boat.

Close, it was 'Bob & Carol & Ted & Ringo'. Presumably some bit of him did re-appear in the Cursed Earth slightly later.

Maybe a good thing to escape the Tories.

If only London would break away from England - maybe join forces with Scotland, which is more aligned than the media might have you believe with Londoners.  p.s. half the bankers that London is known for live in Surrey*






*though admittedly they probably have second homes in the city...
