Okay, so the last few weeks have been a bit of a whirlwind around here, and by that I don’t mean the update to our website.

Ron Moody, the actor best known for his performance of Fagin in the feature film Oliver, has passed away.
Acclaimed horror actor, and face of Tolkien’s Saruman, Christopher Lee, has passed away.
