I thought he was already dead. The most I saw of him was clips of him interviewing Terry Nation, as well as an extract on the special edition of You Only Live Twice. Oh, and Monty Python spoofing him.
Oh well. Shame about his passing.
I've lived for over 2000 years, and not all of them were good ones. I've made many mistakes. And it's about time I did something about that.
