Re: Diana Rigg (1938-2020)

Such sad new. I'll be pulling out some episodes of The Avengers to watch this weekend, as well as OHMSS.

Re: Terrance Dicks (1935–2019)

I thoroughly enjoyed the many stories Terence Dicks recounted of his time on Doctor Who.

Besides being the voice of Scott Tracy , Shane also contributed to many James Bond movies as an actor and providing voices.

Tim Pigott-Smith OBE (1946 - 2017)

Sad news of Tim Pigott-Smith's passing.
To me he will be forever Marco from Doctor Who - The Masque of Mandragora.

Unfortunately such a show could not be produced now due to all the political correctness!

Sad news. My best friend who passed away nearly 3 years ago was a Star Trek fan, maybe he will get the chance to meet Mr. Spock in the afterlife.

Re: PR: ITC Soundtracks on Vinyl [Network]

This is exciting news, especially as I just ordered a new turntable to replace my 30 year old direct drive unit.

Many noteable individuals have passed this year, including Neil Armstrong. Now Gerry Anderson.
