  1. Sadly I can't say I'm surprised. It was only a matter of time before something like this happened.
  2. Hollywood legend Olivia de Havilland has been made a Dame at this year's Birthday Honours. Others recognized for their achievements are Julie Walters and June Whitfield (Edina's mom in "Absolutely Fabulous").

  3. It's really a sad reflection on men's tennis that Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal are still dominating. The younger generation have obviously failed to grab their chance when the two big ones were out of action for most of last year.
  4. Oh my.... I hardly know what to say about this ignorant, self-righteous moron  :rolleyes:

      Jim Bakker is an old con artist and scum. The only good thing about him was Tammy Faye. 

  5. R.I.P Sandra Reemer (1950-2017)
  6. British actor Peter Sallis, the voice of Wallace in "Wallace & Gromit" has passed away, aged 96.

    He also starred in the long-running tv-sitcom "Last of the Summer Wine" throughout its entire run 1973-2010, and was the voice of Rat in the fantastic 1980s animated tv-series "The Wind in the Willows".

  7. I never thought that Geoffrey Burridge would reprise his role, even though that would have been nice if he hadn't died so prematurely. As for a recast, I really have no idea. But I'm certain the casting director would be able to find someone. There's usually no shortage of competent actors in the UK. ETA: I just had an idea about a possible recast: Anthony Andrews. I think there is enough resemblance between him and Geoffrey Burridge to make it work. I'm not sure he would do it though, It wouldn't have to be a regular role, just bring him in to introduce his children and grand-children and re-establish the family in the village. Of course, I'm not sure anyone would care about any resemblance to the previous actor since the character was only on screen for a few weeks 44 years ago, and probably 95% (if not more) of those watching have no idea the Verney family ever existed.
