I know it could be seen as a little morbid, but I keep reading about people related to the show who have passed away so I though perhaps a thread where they could all be remembered would be a good idea.

I didn't see this thread and may I say RS, this is a wonderful idea.

The dissonance between the music and the title sequence was a piece of artistic genius. Like so many of those brilliant pioneers, Norman Taylor tends to get a little lost. TDD, thanks for letting us know about this.

I agree - every aspect of that title sequence is wonderful, and he deserves a lot more notice.

I saw about that, but they only mentioned Gavin & Stacey - I'd forgotten she was in Doctor Who

Such a shame. I met her once while they were filming Gavin and Stacey and she was such a funny and nice lady.
