I posted this only last week in another thread
but it seems more than relevant to put it here seeing the title of this thread.
I have one for a dead TV alive again (albeit a minor one and not being a big celebrity)
For the UK fans (and anyone else that may have watched it overseas) a 1980's UK TV comedy show called Hi De Hi detailing the lives of a 1950's /
60's holiday camp.
Amongst the staff were a ballroom dancing couple Barry & Yvonne. The actor that played Barry Hargreaves was played by an actor called Barry Howard.

I'm a bit confused as I wanted to use past tense knowing full well I recall his death as much as a couple of years ago, if not a little longer.
Imagine my surprise when he turns up (albeit a minor roll as an extra) in the 2009 Christmas Special of Dr. Who The End of Time Part 1.
I cannot recall why I remember his passing being mentioned in the news but I vividly remember it.
I do also see the irony in that the Dr. Who episode is called The End of Time.
