Sir Roger Moore RIP


Neil Down

His last public pronouncement was to say that Idris Elba couldn't play Bond because he wasn't English English ( read black ).

forgetting that there have been Scottish, Irish and Australian English Bonds.

and the irony that he lived in tax exile in Switzerland and Monaco completely passing him by.

He is likely to be a bit more wooden now!

i thought he was a great in the Persuaders with Tony Curtis. 

RIP. 

The Persuaders' theme tune was maybe the best ever

Apart from "Robinson Crusoe"

Better than Van der Valk?

Christ, I forgot all about that.

I even bought the single. ( a small round black disc, for the younger posters on here ( Simon Park Orchestra wasn't it ?

Having now played VDV again, I still think Robinson Crusoe.

Yes John, but weren't all those actors playing a white British male with a minor aristocratic background, public school education etc; just as Ian Fleming characterised him. Some of the novels would no longer make much sense if Bond was black. I think you're judging the late Roger Moore a bit harshly there.
