Sad to hear the news this morning that Jack bloody Duckworth, aka actor Bill Tarmey, has died in Tenerife.
Duckworth was a staple of Coronation Street for years, from the 1977 until they gave him a peaceful death in 2010, asleep in his armchair after celebrating his 74th birthday.
Tarmey, the actor himself, had health problems recently and passed away this morning. He was 71.
Saw Skyfall Wednesday night. Only thing I can tell anyone is, go see it. The girls will love shirtless Daniel Craig, and he is often shirtless, new Bond fans will love the action and for us classic Bond lovers, Craig pulls the old Goldfinger Aston Martin DB5 (and threatens to eject M) and by movies end returns the franchise right back to Dr. No.
In other words, go see it. Now. Stop reading and go.
