RIP Geoffrey Palmer, really enjoyed him in TND and in As Time Goes By, both my mother and my aunt would watch this show with me on both BBC America and PBS when they showed it. Not since my aunt introduced me to Are You Being Served? have I laughed at a British produced comedy show so loud and long.

Geoffrey Palmer was great.  I especially loved him on THE FALL AND RISE OF REGINALD PERRIN as Cousin Jimmy.

RIP Geoffrey Palmer. A wonderful actor who seemed to be perfectly convincing in every role he played.

Alex Trebek passed away this morning at the age of 80 from pancreatic cancer! The crazy thing is that he was still filming up until October 29th. I hope him and Sean are together playing Jeopardy!

Yes, now Alex can host the Celebrity Jeopardy's with Sean Connery, Burt Reynolds and maybe Marlon Brando

Some people would complain even if you hang them with a new rope

A very good compilation video of SNL's Celebrity Jeopardy skits with Alex Trebek and Sean Connery.

No tributes to Des O’Connor? Surprised to see I’m the first, no doubt Des is up there, already getting the mick taken out of him by Eric and Ernie! RIP

Sad to hear of the death of Des O'Connor at the age of 88. He always seemed like such a good-natured man who didn't mind a laugh at his own expense. Here he is on one of his shows with the brilliant stand-up comic Mick Miller:

I'm so surprised it's only 100 years old! One of my favourite musical suites.

For those who are old enough -- and I imagine, especially for those who are English and old enough -- to have seen him during his career, Diego Maradona is mostly likely viewed with a sense of wonder.  Not all wonder is fond, mind you -- the "Hand of God" is as rotten a goal as has ever been scored, and his drug use and frequent obnoxiousness was a turn-off.  But the man was a comet, both on and off the pitch.  "Hand of God" aside, his next goal (just four minutes later) is arguably the most famously great one of all time, and no football/soccer player has ever single-handedly (pun intended) lifted his team to a victory like Maradona did in 1986.  We may never see another package like him.  RIP.

Hilly...you old devil!

RIP Dave Prowse at 85. Best known for playing Darth Vader, of course, and for those of us at the right age the Green Cross Man. Played the Frankenstein Monster a few times, once in the 1967 "Casino Royale" (Bond asks him for directions) which I think was his screen debut.

A man who at once helped ensure my road safety and embodied one of the great iconic villains of my childhood. RIP.

Critics and material I don't need. I haven't changed my act in 49 years.
