Well a tad, but it's probably the one I'm most sad about from this year tbh.

We'll need a new thread for 2018 soon as well. I'm not sure any of mine have died, so I could just submit the same entry again.

3. Nigel Lawson
4. Sir Ian McKellen
5. Dame Maggie Smith
6. William Roche
7. Donald Trump
8. Prince Philip

Really? Bit sneaky to get your list in before the rule exists and then make it a rule!

Only a suggestion and it's not as if I'm picking people already at death's door

OK, as per the other thread, it's the all-new Deathwatch 2017 Unlimited!

Turns out I had missed a couple of deaths from last year, oddly enough both picked by Sean D. (Gord Downie and Jalal Talabani) - sorry Sean.

Current standings:

1. Mark Deeks - 263 points - 4 hits
2. Sean D - 256 points - 4 hits
3. Jim Bentley - 203 points - 3 hits
4. James Laverty - 159 points - 3 hits
5. Thomas Carey - 109 points - 2 hits
6. Andy McGurn - 80 points - 2 hits
7. Marc Meakin - 56 points - 1 hit
8. Ben Wilson - 53 points - 2 hits
9. Euan Slatter - 28 points - 1 hit
10. Gavin Chipper - 0 points - 0 hits
11. Mark James - 0 points - 0 hits
12. Jennifer Steadman - 0 points - 0 hits

As a result of Sean getting three late on last year (and the first of this year), he rockets from nowhere straight into 2nd place. Watch out, Kerry Katona!

Finally Gavin gets one! Surprising, as I thought his list was pretty good (except Cher, who is now mainly made of plastic and will probably never die).

Current standings:

1. Mark Deeks - 263 points - 4 hits
2. Sean D - 256 points - 4 hits
3. Jim Bentley - 203 points - 3 hits
4. James Laverty - 159 points - 3 hits
5. Thomas Carey - 109 points - 2 hits
6. Andy McGurn - 80 points - 2 hits
7. Gavin Chipper - 70 points - 1 hit
8. Marc Meakin - 56 points - 2 hits
9. Ben Wilson - 53 points - 2 hits
10. Euan Slatter - 28 points - 1 hit
11. Mark James - 0 points - 0 hits
12. Jennifer Steadman - 0 points - 0 hits
