I purchased Batman: Dead End at a comic con probably 5 years ago. It was the best Joker I'd seen at that time. For a low budget fan film, it's a fun watch. I never would've connected Koenig to that role...

A really decent man and one of the last great political orators. I wrote to him when I was sixteen (I was as nerdy a teenager as I am an adult) and he wrote back, which thrilled my socks off. He and his dog, Disraeli, were a fixture on Hampstead Heath.

I don't agree with him politically, but he was up front, honest and - rarely for a British politician - intelligent enough to be tolerant of opposing views and genuinely caring.

Very much so, but arguably without the charisma.

Tony Benn, National Treasure that he is, still cannot hold a candle to Michael Foot!

I was listening to the bits of his speeches that Radio 4 played and I was genuinely shocked - I think it's the first time I've ever heard a politician in this country sound like they actually believe in what they're saying. I'm sad that the only reason I've heard of him now is because he died. RIP Mister Foot.

Granny D, political activist. Died at the age of a 100, ten years after walking cross-country to raise awareness of the need for campaign finance reform.

Yes, you did the math right.
