Week 35 update

One death this week, actress Valerie Harper: https://www.theguardian.com/tv-and-radio/2019/aug/31/valerie-harper-emmy-award-winning-star-of-tv-series-rhoda-dies-aged-80

Quote

Valerie Harper, who stole hearts and busted TV taboos as the brash, self-deprecating Rhoda Morgenstern on back-to-back hit sitcoms in the 1970s, has died aged 80.

Longtime family friend Dan Watt confirmed Harper died on Friday, adding the family was not immediately releasing any further details. She had been suffering from cancer for years, and her husband said recently he had been advised to put her in hospice care.

Harper was a breakout star on The Mary Tyler Moore Show, then the lead of her own series, Rhoda.

She won three consecutive Emmys (1971-73) as supporting actress on The Mary Tyler Moore Show and another for outstanding lead actress for Rhoda, which ran from 1974 to 78.

I'd love to offer you more but I've never heard of her, and I've only heard of the Mary Tyler Moore Show because of that Simpsons episode where Patty and Selma get new hairdos then end up pepper spraying Barney. As someone diagnosed with cancer in 2013 it's perhaps unsurprising that Valerie was picked by 7 people: @Billy Jean King, @Bishop Briggs, @cdisaaccie, @expatowner, @lichtgilphead, @Melanius Mullarkey and @peasy23. She died at 80, so she's worth 45 Base Points. As a result, the standings now look like this:

1. Oooooft 605

I’m quite proud of the fact that I have exactly 100 points.

Or at least I’m telling myself that until someone else in my team can bother their arse to die.

Had Valerie Harper in my dead pool for the last 3 years and took her off my list this year as I thought she was at it. Still no points and only 4 months to go.

Simple rule of Dead Pool -
Once they've been in your team for so long if you take them off that's when they cark it.

That's Terrance Dicks popped his clogs at the age of 84. 

Shame. I must have read dozens of his Doctor Who books as a kid. 

You think that's what killed him?
