Farewell to Colombo. Always enjoyable detective series. He always had a knack, on his way out, to turn round and say 'oh and another question ....' and catch his suspect off-guard. Did Poirot also do that? (haven't read an Agatha Christie for a looooonnngg time)

I know he's been suffering from Alzheimer's for many years. It's very sad news. RIP Peter Falk...( Columbo )

Ah, remembered, what he used to often say was .....'Just one more thing.....'

I'm a huge Columbo fan - very sad news!

If you're into the show HMV are doing the boxset with every episode made for 59 in-store at the moment (It's a slightly more expensive 130 from their website).

Also if you get a chance there is a stage version of the pilot episode "Prescription Murder" which has toured the UK in each of the last 2 years. I saw it in Belfast last year when Dirk Benedict (The A-Team's "Faceman") played the main role.

That came to a local theatre. I wasn't sure what amaed me most, that the suave Dirk Benedict was now playing scuffy old Columbo or that The Face was appearing in Worthing!

I once did a tour of LA and saw Peter Falk doing the drains on his driveway. He waved... which was nice of him!

He was actually very good in the role, after a while you forgot it was someone other than Peter Falk...
