Where the hell, is Julian Fell?

Post by Matthew Green » Wed Feb 20, 2013 11:48 am

I put that comma in so it would read like a jaunty rhyme.

Not really up to date on the 30th B'day Championship but from the recaps it looks like some amazing games happening.
One problem though- no Julian Fell. For me, he is still the grand daddy of Countdown and it's a damn shame he's not in this. Did he turn it down? Was he untraceable?

And on a similar note, where the hell is Dave Von Geyer?
If I suddenly have a squirming baby on my lap it probably means that I should start paying it some attention and stop wasting my time messing around on a Countdown forum

He announced his retirement a few years ago while in the middle of an online tournament. Mid round if legend is to be believed. Mid declaration. Also I doubt he turned down an invitation. People had to actively apply.

Think I've said on here before but I too was really disappointed not to see him in the draw as for a tournament of this nature, thought it would be fitting to have him in the tournament.

Just after I put my enquiry in to appear in the tournament, I was going through my old Hotmail account and stumbled across Julian's e-mail in the address section and subsequently sent him an e-mail as I was hoping he'd at least know about it and was intrigued to know what his thoughts would be but sadly the e-mail bounced back within 10 minutes :(

I have no idea of his whereabouts now. I don't think he's on Facebook and I've never found him on LinkedIn either.
Probably the second tallest ever series finalist.

Shame that, a real legend. How about we start up a Hall of Fame? Strictest criteria of entry, of course!

You could have a "greats" thread where everyone just lists the Countdowners that they consider to have achieved "greatness". No ordering, and no particular size limit. Some might pick 2 and some 102.

He-man is doing his part in imitating Harvey's 'special' face, though...

I've actually managed to get hold of him the other day as I am trying to organise a reunion for later on this year for the people in my C of C and others around that time. He was basically miffed I managed to get hold of him and said that whilst he didn't have anything against me, he asked me not to contact him again and didn't want anything to do with Countdown again. Shame really but I respect his wishes.

Maybe my 'discovery' of him at my pub quiz a couple of weeks ago means that I won't see him again there either...

Has he joined a religious cult or something?

Is it bad I just searched the Parkrun website to see if Fell was registered?


SPOILER ALERT: He isn't
Definitely not Jamie McNeill or Schrodinger's Cat....

I've probably done the same in the past. I often look random people up.

Ooh! I got a good one. Mandy Buck from Series 46 has never been seen at a CO-event since. So...

Where is Mandy Buck, anyway?

I don't think we've seen Christine Hunt since her defeat to Jack Worsley.
