    The Sky at Night and Gamesmaster were the staple of many a geek like myself when we were growing up.

    To be expected, he's been looking very shaky for a while now.
    RIP

    Just saw this as well. Sad news but not entirely unexpected.

    @kickerconspiracy - while it's disappointing to hear some of the crap he came out with in those interviews, at least he's had a positive influence on some people as well (not saying that excuses having such an outdated outlook on the world). My 8 year-old self wouldn't have been half as interested in astronomy if the Sky at Night hadn't existed and I only watched that to begin with because it was Gamesmaster.

    Holy shit I never realised he was also the Gamesmaster dude.

    Mind blown today.

    Is this also the end of the monocle? He was the only living monocle-wearer I have ever seen.

    Suppose at least he will still be in The Sky at Night.

    Tbh, I never really cared enough to think about it. Watched GM when I was like 10. Never though about it until right now!

    You'll shit yourself (on a chair) when you realise Dexter Fletcher was Soap in Lock Stock. Who'd have thunk it?!

    He was very old and had some old-crazy-people views, but he was a pretty big deal. He was the Gamesmaster!

    No, Dave "Games Animal" Perry is a massive bell-end. He's clearly going for the shortcut, fails miserably and throws a tantrum. TV gold!

    Well, shit. I honestly thought he'd died years ago.
  • Deleted user 9 December 2012 13:53:16
    That is actually ace. I need to see more of this 'person'. Think I need to go watch King of Kongs again.

    Is mowgli a citizen of Metropolis?
  • Deleted user 9 December 2012 14:01:44
    I'm not as old as you fucks and I can't say I thought about it much enough at the time. No doubt if I had seen a clip in the past ten years it would have clicked straight away!

    :(

    Do you have to think about who you are yourself?
