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...

He starred in plays, movies, and also on television. Some of his TV appearances included frequent game show panels like "Match Game", "Tattletales", and "To Tell the Truth". He also had appearances later on in such shows as "Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman", “Desperate Housewives", “How I Met Your Mother” and “Modern Family".

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.

Won't lie, Connery's passing kind of hit me like a truck. An excellent actor playing Bond, Dr. Jones, The Colonel in Orient Express and many many more roles. I also loved that many of us on the forum - Poirot for two of their fan games used Connery as Mustard.
