Is it me, or do those sketches look like two other completely different people?

we enjoyed a beautiful lunch prepared by Stephen
'Prepared' is a well-chosen word as it looks like he just opened a few packets from M&S or Waitrose

Along with Clive Dunn (who she is 7 years older than) has been on DL from the very start and still kicking and toying with us, bless her :lol:

I thought Anna was going to make 100.

She once appeared in Doctor Who you know!!

Sad news.

Truly one of the least exciting deaths of an actually famous, "mentioned on the evening news" person ever.

Yes. I've never watched more than 5 minutes of Eastenders in my life and I've never seen her in it but from what little I saw of her she seemed like a very nice lady and you've clearly got to admire anyone makes it to that age (except fugitive Nazi war criminals obviously).

She was also in an episode of The Sweeney - "On the Run", the last episode of Series 3 (1976) which I'm sure I'll get round to watching if humanity is still in a state to provide electricity by the time I'm my Dad's age.

Just keep an eye on ITV4, they keep rerunning them in a loop.

She was still quite prolific in her final years actually, for her age anyway. Appeared in Son of Rambow, made guest appearances in Casualty, The Bill etc, and a music video last year

Desperately sorry to hear this. Looks like I picked the wrong geriatric former E20 resident this year.

I was thinking the other day that it seemed like except for Havelange, Whitlam, and Gabor, all the names on the DL that were born 1917 or earlier seemed to be in pretty good health. Not the case anymore for Wing obviously. Well done to DL...

Didn't you already use that one for Wendy Richard? How about Anna Gets Her Wings?
