Sad news, Bill Maclagan died on the 5th of April 2016.
You and your quiz will be very much missed, many thanks for the many years of
fun and anticipation you gave us over the years with your exasperatingly brilliant questions.
R. I. P. Bill, you will never be forgotten.

@bennattod,
Bill's obituary notice appeared in yesterday's edition of The Times newspaper (11 April). He was 70 years of age and as we all know had been battling with cancer for some considerable time. A memorial service is being held at St Mary's Church, Wimbledon, on 4 May and donations may be sent to Cancer Research, c/o Ashton Funeral Service, 140 Alexandra Road, London SW19 7JY.
R.I.P Bill, you were a true gentleman who gave so many hours of pleasure to so many of us.

@earlbertie,
Bill,
You were a staple of my life since I was a student; I have loved you and hated you; questions about Gilbert and Sullivan (youthful trauma) and tennis I hated, your traps I loved. Thank you for so many years of joy. May the otherworld welcome you.

I agree all the sentiments expressed above. R.I.P. Bill. The Great Great Brain/Fun quiz was a special part of my life.

@bennattod,
Very sad news about Bill. Glad that he was not alone at the end and that his passing was peaceful.
The quality of the questions never ceased to amaze me and to come up with them month after month took some doing. I've done his quizzes since 2000 - not many questions were repeated. RIP Bill you will not be forgotten.

@earlbertie,
I am very sorry to hear of Bill Maclagan's death. He gave me many hours of fun over years. He sounded much younger on the phone. No doubt he was young at heart.
