Was this during or after the series? If during that must have really been something.

{{{ RIP Barry Norman. He pretty much informed entirely my idea of what a good film critic was. }}}

{{{RIP Victor Pemberton. He was one of the few who appeared in Doctor Who (he was converted into a cyberman!) and to be a writer.
He is responsible for two particualry iconic scenes- the first was the 2nd Doctor comforting Victoria-



and the other was the invention of the sonic screwdriver- still with us a major iconic part of the Whoverse to this day, even if its uses have been extended rather considerably from just screwing and unscrewing things.- see War Doctors response to 10, 11's use of the sonic "Oh, the pointing again. They're screwdrivers! What are you going to do, assemble a cabinet at them? "



He came back to the show as a free lance writer and penned Fury from the Deep as well as later writing for the 4th Doctor.
Thanks for the great writing Victor- and for giving us the sonic! }}}

{{Farewell to the great Bruce Forsyth, a huge part of my family weekend TV viewing growing up and he just never stopped and seemed like he never would.

I saw that he's passed away. I thought something might happen, as for a while, they've said he's been frail. He filled his life with lots of things & met lots of interesting people tho.
I'm getting to accept that I wont be seeing a neighbour of mine. She lived in the block next to me, In my old flat actually. Only in her early 30's, single mum. Just passed exams to be a pharmacist so, to celebrate, she & her daughter took a holiday back to Russia to see her family. Got a taxi from the Airport, taxi driver fell asleep at the wheel, now she's gone Sad Her daughter has just come out from a coma & will find out she doesn't have her mother any more. All of the neighbours here are stunned & we've all cried. She was such a nice woman. Too young to 'go' as well. Sad I used to chat with her as we took our dogs for a walk & her daughter would chat with me as I did my garden. She would call Simi funny names Neutral
