It ads an extra sting that the Christchurch terror attacks are inspired by Breivik, but today our thoughts are with the victims and their families.

Shane Rimmer, the Canadian actor who played parts in three different Bond films--the largest one was as Captain Carter in The Spy Who Loved Me--has died at the age of 89.  Personally, my favorite Rimmer appearance was as the NASA controller in You Only Live Twice who--despite supposedly being American--mispronounces "Houston!"  (It's HYOOston, not HOOston.)  RIP, sir!

^Apart from TSWLM, my favourite character is Tom,from DAF. Like tge way WW shouts at him,because he was supposed to send something to Vandenberg and he doesn't.

WW-"Tom, what did i tell you to do with this?"

Tom-"Send it to Vandenburg,sir!"

WW-"WELL GET 'EM ON THE PHONE,NOW!!!"

Both great characters.

I can't think of many London landmarks that mean so much to me, I'm sorry to say. Buckingham Palace? Ugly landmark, never been in it.
I'd give a shout out for St Paul's, indeed it's iconic and survived the Blitz - there's that amazing black and white photo of it emerging from the smoke. That said, I went in there once and I can't say I ever found it spiritually uplifting.
The area around St Paul's is a bit stressy, and there's the difference. Notre Dame is not just a link to Paris' medieval past, mostly destroyed in the massive renovations under Baron Hausemann from 1850-70, it is in such a lovely area.
Took my Mum to Paris twice, when she had advanced Parkinson's, in 2007 and 2010. Thing is, when the place goes up in smoke, so do your memories a bit.

That nobody died in the fire means your 'grief' is unfiltered. I mean, I was sorry the Twin Towers went, but a) It had few touching personal memories and b) How can you grieve for a building when others are grieving for their family and friends?
But with Notre Dame, well, watching that burn was like being called out to the hospital.
And you have your own personal memories of it.

The area around Westminster with Big Ben and the London Eye are very lovely too, but obviously lacks the religious aspect that Notre Dame has.

Like everyone who's interested in history and art, I felt the loss strongly when Notre Dame bured.

Re: Tributes Thread

Great words, NP.  We don't have much in the US that equates to Notre Dame in terms of history.  It's a magical place.  And it will return to its former glory, I truly believe that.

Thank You, Mr. Picker for taking a chance on a property that a lot of people had little faith in succeeding as a cinematic series.
