Actor-comedian Orson Bean, 91, hit and killed by car in LA
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Orson Bean, the witty actor and comedian, was hit and killed by a car in Los Angeles, authorities said. He was 91.

The Los Angeles County coroner's office confirmed Bean's Friday night death, saying it was being investigated as a “traffic-related” fatality. The coroner's office provided the location where Bean was found, which matched reports from local news outlets...

Now Tim Brooke-Taylor's dead.

With Barry Cryer and Graeme Garden as semi-retired panellists, will it be the end of I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue soon?

I saw the Goodies many years ago when they were on tour in Australia, though I can't remember the exact year anymore. Bill wasn't in it physically, just on some pre-recorded video inserts, so it was before 2013.

That should be "COVID-19" (the "19" for "2019").

[b]Lynn Faulds Wood[/b] who was a panellist in the [i]Murder in Merrie England[/i] episode is dead, aged 72.

Edit: her co-panellist was Nicholas Parsons who died earlier this year. For them to die in the same year is a bit spooky.

All depends on how old people are and if health issues were involved as well as to how "spooky" the coincidences may be.
