This is so sad, and I've also been surprised by the lack of coverage of his death (most of the news is dominated by election news, the Pope and the Royal Wedding). But anyway, I think its very sad, but I'm sure his son will do a good job, and at least he'l be with Grace again.. :cry:
"Ah, get born, keep warm
Short pants, romance, learn to dance
Get dressed, get blessed
Try to be a success
Please her, please him, buy gifts
Don't steal, don't lift
Twenty years of schoolin'
And they put you on the day shift..."

I know almost nothing about him. does anyone have a thumbnail on his life?

The Doctor: The universe is big. It's vast and complicated and ridiculous and sometimes, very rarely, impossible things just happen and we call them miracles... and that's a theory. Nine hundred years and I've never seen one yet, but this will do me.

He was a pretty classy guy and he'll be buried on the 15th of April. :down:
The longest-running science fiction series: decadent, degenerate and rotten to the core. Power-mad conspirators, Daleks, Sontarans... Cybermen! They're still in the nursery compared to us. Fifty years of absolute fandom. That's what it takes to be really critical.
