    Omar was one of the best characters on TV this century.

    Think its time to rewatch The Wire in honour of him.

    R.I.P fella :(

    Been an awful lot of TV/Film stars dying these past 12 months, way before their time too.

    I had been thinking of watching The Wire again anyway but agree that this might be the kicker to start watching it

    One of my favourites from the series. Apparently Williams also did a lot of social work.

    Just like when Ian Watkins was convicted there was a story online about it with a picture of H from Steps with it.

    Maria Mendiola who sang " Yes Sir I Can Boogie" has died aged 69.

    Was a hit from the 70's and Scottish national team supporters recently adopted it as their song.

    Norm Macdonald has died at 61. One of the funnier North American comedians.

    RIP Norm Macdonald. Absolute legend.
    The way he sets up the joke around a senstive topic. Jerry's change of expression.

    Omar was one of the best characters in any show. The Wire was fantastic, really enjoyed watching that. RIP

    We've decided to rewatch all five seasons starting tonight. It'll be strange watching Dominic West and Idris again after thinking they were actually American first time around. I wonder if they're accents will hold up..

    Only just seen this. FFS.

    That has really knocked me, I ****ing love Norm and had hoped to get to LA soon and perhaps see him at the Store by chance since he didn't seem to do proper tours anymore.

    RIP.

    Started doing the same last week and half way through season 4 already. Great show. I still think the sopranos is better but definitely top 3/5 shows I've seen

    A great example of how a Joe is made by its delivery.

    There's a great set he did at one of those "roasts" where he used gags from a book on retirement party jokes. His twist on awful jokes is unmatched. Deliberately bombed the set but ended up being the funniest one

    Inventor Sir Clive Sinclair, who popularised the home computer and invented the pocket calculator, has died at his London home aged 81.

    His daughter Belinda Sinclair said he passed away on Thursday morning after having cancer for more than a decade.

    Sir Clive's products included the ZX series of computers and his ill-fated C5 electric vehicle.

    He was still working on his inventions last week "because that was what he loved doing", said Ms Sinclair.

    "He was inventive and imaginative and for him it was exciting and an adventure, it was his passion," she added.

    His ZX Spectrum computers brought affordable personal computing to the masses - selling in their millions across the world.

    However, in a BBC interview in 2013, Sir Clive revealed he did not, at that time, use computers himself.

    "I don't like distraction," he explained.

    "If I had a computer, I'd start thinking I could change this and that, and I don't want to. My wife very kindly looks after that for me."
