Sad to hear, I had quite a lot of messages backwards and forwards with Alan. he was a compulsive box swapper and valve roller for quite a while.


#622

Yes, that is sad. Struck me as a nice chap, and the odd bit of gear I bought from his swapping exploits was always immaculate.

Rest peacefully, AlanB.

#625

A tireless campaigner for the protection of our environment.


#626

I knew Lindsay and also worked with him many years ago. Flowers was amazing - anyone lucky enough to have seen it back in the 70’s early 80’s?

#628

RIP Servalan, aka Jaqueline Pearce.


#629

Damn, I wanted to be subjugated by her.


#630

Oh my. Probably my favourite TV programme as a kid. :slightly_frowning_face:


#631

Mine too. I was only about 11 or 12 when it finished, but even then I knew that there was ‘something’ about Servalan…


#632

I’ve not listened to her blog, but others who I have spoken to recently have and found it a great source of support and inspiration. Tragic for her son and husband.


#633

Losing the wife/mother with a child so young is simply unimaginable. It also makes me realise that while I’m ill, I’m not even close to a death sentence. No matter how bad things are for you, there are many who are even less fortunate.


#634

She spent her last days wrapping presents for her son up until his 18th birthday. She deserves so much respect.


#635

This. I just have to look around me to see how lucky I am. I was diagnosed 4 months before my youngest was born. I’m still here and am told that there is no reason to believe I won’t see her 21st, which is more than a decade away.

Bollocks to cancer!
