But did his arms flail uncontrollably as he died?

He was quite young (69), considering he was in a programme that started 44 years ago. Far younger than some of the other recent deaths of people who seemed to be on TV much more recently.

I think there is some kind of Science Fiction cull going on. I'm not sure who to blame yet. Probably aliens.

Funny though :)

Totally unrelated to the sf/cult TV arena, but here's another one, John Martyn has died at the tender age of 60.

One of the sweetest tunes of all time. IMHO of course, but I'm sure anyone who has heard it won't disagree.
