Bit like trying to listen to the news and being interrupted by updates on who ran around a field playing games.

And not even good games like Carcassonne...

Machiko Kyo, aged 95

She was a recognisable fave in the 1950's Japanese cinema scene, appearing in many classics. Ugetsu, Gates of Hell, Floating Weeds, and most iconic of all, Akira Kurosawa's Rashomon, one of the all time classics of Japanese cinema which I can't recommend highly enough. She was one of the first Japanese actors to receive a Golden Globe.

Me too. At the risk of sounding like a Garth Ennis character, I met him once, backstage at one of their gigs (mate in the industry, see).  He was appropriately off his bin, and so was I - I drank most of his wine and he didn't mind.

Paul Darrow, Avon from Blake's 7.

This really makes me sad. He was a true icon of British tv and a lovely bloke. There'll never be another like him.
