Due on a cruise from Southampton to Sydney 10 Jan 2014 (Q.M.2) Where do I write to cancel!

Jokes aside, he was a brilliant mind. RIP

I remember those immortal words he uttered at the beginning of his show.

Hello, Good Evening & Welcome.

RIP Sir David.

He was famous in America, well respected, and always right to the point. You had to pay attention and learn. There was no fluff or filler in his interviews, and the time flew by. In later life,he looked older than his years in my opinion....like 84 and not 74......either way, the man was pure wisdom and a pleasure to watch. Who will ever forget his head on interview with Richard Nixon!

:mellow: Sorry to hear of David's passing...........

Loved his satire and sharp wit when hosting TWTWTW back in 60's.

Enjoyed his piercing interviews with well-known personages.

A lad of many talents, a lad who did well in life.

Far too young to go...................

Missed - a likeable personality - God Bless David. xx

Spooky coincidence..........he died at almost the same time as the first episode of a new series of 'Through the keyhole' - which he started.

He was considered a soft touch by Blair and Co. equivalent to a grilling on the Sooty show....Paxman he wasn't.

I liked his early stuff though.

RIP David Frost, way ahead of his time with TWTWTW, not forgetting his accomplices

Yes, sad to see him go.

The very early stuff - That Was The Week That Was and the 'intense' interviews were groundbreaking but I agree, he had become a soft touch in recent years.

He always gave Blair an easy ride, and he seemed a little too cosy with contemporary politicians.

I always enjoy watching the interview that he did with Enoch Powell where, quite frankly, Powell ran rings around him and put him in his place!

Worth checking out.

A great mind,great thinker and the best Prime minister we never had.

:mellow: S'pose you could easily say that Sir David Frost had become a National Treasure.

PS: Caught him on the telly a couple of months ago and thought he didn't look very well (seriously); should he have set himself the task of the Cruise talk?

A World Cruise is cheaper than a Care Home and he'd be getting pocket money as well ......
