    Back with another question. ;)
    He's lieutenant Columbia what would be the equilivant rank in the UK ?

    I've wondered about this myself from time to time but this might provide the answer:

    It may be like the Foreign legion, which has some different ranks
    compared to other armies ?

    Watched Prescription Murder this afternoon, the first ever episode of Columbo.
    It's a fine episode and Columbo looks quite neat and tidy. Not many creases in the old mac at this stage.

    Been listening to this podcast for a few days now. Two guys, discussing each episode of Columbo. Give it a go!

    Watched Columbo Goes To The Guillottine yesterday and i was just thinking that that's the second time in the same year, that poor Anthony Zerbe has lost his head!
    Have you ever heard of the Emancipation Proclamation?"

    I taped this from the radio back in September 2007 when it was originally broadcast and I've just found it's available on YouTube. One of the few programmes made about Columbo that I can recall:

    Some very sad news to report. Columbo co-creator William Link has died at the age of 87 from congestive heart failure:

    Thanks for the memories indeed, Mr Link, and for co-creating my favourite TV series and TV character bar none. In fact I was watching a Columbo episode just last night (A Matter of Honor). Mr Link co-wrote my personal favourite Columbo episode Death Lends a Hand (1971) with the late Dick Levinson. Thanks for all the years of escapism, happiness and sheer enjoyment that have come from watching Columbo, Mr Link.

    In Memory of William Link

    Just learned from the Columbophile that the actor Bruce Kirby died on 24 January 2021, aged 95. He played Sergeant Kramer in six episodes of Columbo as well as assorted other characters. I always liked the humour he brought to the episodes. His late son Bruno Kirby also appeared with him as an army cadet in the Season 4 episode By Dawn's Early Light (1974). He's probably the last of the regular bit part players that regularly appeared in Columbo episodes.

    More sad news to report on the Columbo front. The actress and singer Trisha Noble, who played Marcy Hubbard in the episode ‘Playback’ (1975), passed away on 23 January 2021, aged 76. She was one of the many very beautiful women to appear in Columbo over the years:

    What that Columbo episode that they thought of setting in Japan might have looked like:

    Remembering the great Peter Falk who died 10 years ago on this day, 23 June, back in 2011, aged 83.
