Victoria Wood


Recommended Posts

This probably won't mean anything much outside the UK, but Victoria Wood, originator of the classic line "Smear an avocado on me lower portions" and of the classic soap-opera Acorn Antiques, has just died at the very untimely age of 62. There is a huge weight of gloom over Britain just now.

And another one bites the dust - the artist formerly known as the artist formerly known as Prince, only 57.

I don't know what's going on this year but even if the basic number of famous people dying is nothing special, it seems like this year's taking a lot in their 50s-60s :(

I was about to mention that Bond and Battle of Britain director Guy Hamilton also died today, at the much more respectable age of 93- but Prince? Come on, this is just mad.

It's just been one loss after another this year, hammer blow after hammer blow and we're still only in April! :(

Victoria Wood was the Queen of Comedy on British TV. Who can ever forget her two fantastic comedy series: Acorn Antiques and Dinnerladies? She's going to be sorely missed!!

R .I. P Victoria!!!
