Re: Tributes Thread

RIP Sir Thomas Sean Connery .... you will be missed!

Babs and Michael got their tribute very wrong “the names Bond, James Bond” where in fact the actor’s opener should have been “I admire your courage Ms?” Trench, Sylvia Trench. I admire your luck Mr? “Bond, James Bond”  ajb007/martini

So sad to be reading about Sean Connery's passing; he remains the best James Bond ever and truly was one of the last great movie stars. RIP.

John Sessions has died aged 67, RIP

Re: Tributes Thread

Yes. On Sir Sean's 90th birthday the BBC wheeled out a Talking Pictures-style documentary tribute, narrated by the comedian and actor John Sessions. As this sort of thing is usually done by the veteran actress Sylvia Syms, who must be getting on now, I felt a bit resentful that she hadn't done it this time but was replaced by the young whippersnapper, who in his narration sounded a bit like the late Clive James.

Anyway, as it turns out, Sessions didn't last much longer than Sir Sean, and did a fine job of narratng the doc.

RIP John Sessions. An incredible wit and sharp mind. Too young to pass.

Re: Tributes Thread

Ladies and Gents,

   It is my sad duty to report that veteran actor and dear friend of Dame Judi, Geoffrey Palmer has passed, peacefully at home.
Although he played numerous characters over a highly successful acting career, he is probably still best remembered
as Lionel in As Time Goes by and of course to us, as Admiral Roebuck in Tomorrow Never Dies.

Mr Palmer was 93. 

Bugger.

This is Thunderbird 2, how can I be of assistance?

RIP Geoffrey Palmer, although 93
Is a great age to reach.  I always
Remember him as the Doctor  in
The fawlty  Towers episode with
The dead guest.

Re: Tributes Thread

Sad to hear of the death of Geoffrey Palmer. 93 is a good innings though.
