Sadly, the real world reflects Toobworld with the announcement of the death of William Hutt in Canada. He was 87 and had been suffering from leukemia.

Mr. Hutt was a Shakespearean acting legend, a giant at the Stratford Shakespeare Festival for half a century. Recently on Television, he appeared in the third (and probably final) season of 'Slings & Arrows', which was about a similar Shakespeare festival in the Toobworldian town of New Burbage.

Mr. Hutt portrayed Charles Kingman, also an acting legend in Canada, who had just the one last chance to play "King Lear" before he died of cancer.

I'm fairly certain that before the year is out, you'll be seeing the name of William Hutt in this space again.....
