:P Peter Ustinov is a good candidate for impending lack of life. Having seen recent documentaries about his life and career it's obvious he's looking very frail. He can't get around without the aid of a couple of sticks and he seems rather vulnerable. Surely a higher place (top 10) next year for the British film hero? A sure bet for 2004 methinks.

I thought Id posted some comments on Ustinov before but I must have dreamed it.

Several years ago Ustinov did a on location documentary on the making of the Pirelli calendar. Frankly there was a lot of smart money at the time on Usti keeling over right there and then with the excitement of it all.

I agree he looks like a candidate for a higher position next year.

Looks like the dutch Queen mum has set a shining example....... hopefully a few more may take to the trend......

It's funny how these things seem to come in clusters. Took the day off from watching the news wires - won't make the same mistake tomorrow.

So we struggled a bit more with the headline on this one. Really needed to pass away on an Eyptian cruise.

Peter Ustinoff??

Oh I give up. Anyone do any better?

RIP Pete.

How about something clever and subtle for the master of quick wit and ready repartee? Like "Fat Pete's Dead."?

Shame he didn't go the same way as Rod Hull then we could have had "Death on the Tiles"

Did he have a medical condition? "Death from his piles"

I'm sure any details of piles will be kept strictly under wraps, as would any details of indiscriminate Tail Wagging.

I like the suggestion from little sister.

He was killed by James Garner. Death on The Rockford File.
