Old twice-nightly...
So I'm more moved by this than even the passing of Piglet. Richard Whitely, king of Countdown, whom I have watched for years and whose cream & blue striped blazer I first encountered in the early '80s in my Grandmother's living room, has passed away. The BBC has an in-depth obituary. I'm particularly intrigued by their assertion that Whitely "is believed to have clocked-up more hours on television screens - and more than 10,000 appearances - than anyone else alive, apart from the girl on the test card." Wonder how that measures up to Regis Philbin?

Anyway. Farewell, & if you get chance, let us know the solution to the greatest conundrum of all...
