    It's still breaking the rules: every day a misery, every day an
    appalling descent into turmoil.

    Let's just wait 'til Dirty Den returns again. Prolly when Chrissie gets
    an early release.

    What? Huh?

    Did Leslie Grantham die recently? Please help a poor
    clueless colonial. What was the cause of death? Mysterious
    circumstances?

    I didn't think he was that old, although hard living can
    age a person quickly.

    He was 71 yo, don't know how or why or what of.

    I read the articles on BBC World News, and they didn't
    mention the cause, just that he had returned to England
    for medical treatment and that he died in hospital.

    Better than being buried in the basement of the Queen
    Vic I guess.

    Nyssa, who is at least glad that June Brown is still alive
    considering how many other EE actors we've lost
