2015 is over and so ends the "British Invasion" theme for last year's inductions into the Television Crossover Hall Of Fame.  Every month we inducted a British TV character or member of the League of Themselves into the Hall, with so many left over that could have been considered.  Perhaps we might do it again, should a special occasion in the timeline of the real world gives us a good reason.

But they weren't the only new members for 2015.  We had several tributes added, mostly in memory of actors who had passed away - Leonard Nimoy and Dick Van Patten as themselves and Al Floss in remembrance of Alex Rocco, for example - or in celebration of milestone birthdays - Bette Midler at 70, Robert Conrad at 80, and Old Blue Eyes on what would have been his 100th.
