Damn... it's McGaven, not McGiven... (still, not the worse mistake you can make on an obit)

McGavin was also in Raw Deal, which has my all time favourite Arnholt quote in.

Obviously you're not a golfer.

Octavia Butler was a NW local. I've never actually read any of her stuff though.

I reckon Kolchak was done in by vampires. You can't prove it's not true!

Not if you're Kolchak - poor stiff never got the scoop.

You've missed a prime opportunity for a McCloud pun there, RAC.

Thats really sad about Denis Weaver. Always had a soft spot for him that stems form my youth, when my dad christened the local nutjob who used to go around dressed as a cowboy( 6 guns and all) "Mc Cloud".

He was great in Duel.

A couple more names to add to this thread - Lou Gish died last week. She's probably most known for playing Jeffs boss/girlfriend in half a dozen episodes of Coupling. Linda Smith the 'nice' comedian from practically any Radio 4 comedy show died yesterday. Both from Cancer.
