This came into play for Alison’s 21st last Thursday at Newsroom where Buckfutter recorded their first win for seventeen years.

Happy birthday!

RIP Max Thomson

I did not know Max Thomson very well at all, I know his quiz team-mate Brian Pendreigh far better, but Max came to  the quiz quite a few times with THE DUDE ABIDES team and not only was he good at trivia, it was always a pleasure to be in his company.

So it was a shock to hear that Max took his own life last Wednesday in Leith, just two days after the broadcast of his victorious appearance (above) together with Brian and his team ‘Tram Lines’ on the BBC quiz program Eggheads.

As with so many suicides, it appears that no one expected this or had any indication that he might do such a thing. It’s a complicated and tragic business. What can you say?

RIP Max, and here’s a few photos of him at the Dr Paul quiz over the last few years:

Thanks to Brian for Eggheads snap.
