When the tragic news of the death of Roger Moore broke, I was mentally compiling a schedule for the next tranche of things to review. I can’t even remember what the others were. It doesn’t matter. As someone said on Twitter that day, in the midst of a week of horrible news, it was a measure of the impact that an 89-year-old man’s life had had on their own that his passing still affected them so. I have to agree. So many of us who have blogs and sites devoted to cult TV and films are in it in no small part due to Moore’s contribution, often with drink and cigar in hand, one eyebrow sardonically arched.
This one’s for you- RIP, Sir Roger Moore.
