We were going to pen our own tribute to Jeremy Beadle, who sadly died on the 30th of January, but the tribute at TV Cream says pretty much what we'd want to say perfectly. While he may well have been a perennial easy target for many a tiresome wag, as if becoming one of Britain's most popular television presenters while being carrying a noticable disability with a quiet dignity is something deserving of mockery, he was a genuinely talented presenter, not to mention being one of the entertainment industry's all-round goodest of eggs.

Here' hoping BBC Four can at least broadcast a repeat episode of the excellent 'Eureka' in his honour, if only to give an all-too-rare airing of his earlier output.

[Late edit] Out On Blue Six have also written a tribute to Jeremy Beadle, which is well worth reading.
