Jonathan Miller RIP

Fame for Beyond the Fringe and much, much more - his wonderful mid-60s adaptation of Alice in Wonderland for the BBC being just one

As much as I love Fringe, this was the first thing I thought of when I saw the thread title - an extraordinary piece of work.


R.I.P., Dr. Miller

Out of all the deaths this week it's Gary Rhodes that shocked me most. Very unexpected and, although he was about 10 years older than I thought he was, he was still way too young to die and didn't seem to have any illness that I'm aware of. I can't find anything online about the cause of death. For a celebrity chef he was not a cunt and actually quite likable.

I actually thought Jonathon Miller was already dead tbh. I liked him though but seemed to have been off my radar for a long, long time.


RIP to both.

Brain haemorrhage from an acccidental knock on the head, I think.

I stand corrected. It was an unexpected bleed on the brain.
