Today Is A Good Day To Die

Or so it seems. Following on from the earlier news about Anthony Minghella dying, two slightly less unexpected deaths.

Legendary writer and sci-fi predictor, Arthur C Clarke died at the age of 90, after a respiratory illness.

And the actor who used to play Captain Birdseye, John Hewer, has died at the age of 86. In a slight case of "too soon", today's Guardian Fiver email suggested "A BURIAL AT SEA IN A CRISPY BATTERED COFFIN FOR JOHN HEWER, PLEASE"

And yes, I'm just annoyed someone else came up with that gag before I did.
