Regular readers might have noticed the occasional mention of the way the celebrities from 80s and 90s TV have a strange habit of dying close to the time they feature in some way on this blog.
Yesterday, Caroline Ahearne died at the horribly young age of 52. I did a quick search, but the most recent mention of her work on this blog was in April which is, I feel, outside the parameters for any supernatural effect.
Then, this morning I was checking the results of a tape I had digitised overnight. Right at the end, just after an episode of The Saturday Night Armistice, just before the recording stopped, there were some trailers for upcoming programmes, including this one.
I’m starting to feel like I’m part of a very slow moving VHS-based variation on Final Destination.
