35 years she spent as Dot Cotton. Even at 95 that's a third of her life!
What a fantastic legacy to leave behind x

35 years on Eastenders?  Sounds more like cruel and unusual punishment to me! ;-)

Sylvia Lancaster.

Mother of Sarah Lancaster, murdered in 2007 for 'dressing Goth'.  I'm sure not coincidentally Sylvia's death comes less than a month after the announcement that one of one of Sarah's murderers was due to be released from prison.

TV comedy writer Eric Chappell - creator of Rising Damp and Only When I Laugh - has died aged 88.
File him under 'Thought he went long ago'.
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!

Absolute Legendary Comic Artist Neal Adams has died. Damn! He was such a brilliant draughtsman; he revolutionised the medium and produced what was probably then unequalled photorealistic art.
