Damn. Two weeks into the year, and we've lost Bowie, Lemmy, David Margulies, and now Alan Rickman.

Rickman played the angel Metatron, the mad monk Rasputin, Franz Mesmer, Tybalt and Louis XIV. He provided the voice for the caterpillar of Wonderland and Marvin, the paranoid android. He was spectacular at portraying villains, forever remembered for playing Hans Gruber and the Sheriff of Nottingham. He utterly broke my heart in Truly, Madly, Deeply. And apparently he did something in Harry Potter.

They'll have to get a woman to play the Doctor next - all the best male actors are dying. There'll soon be no one left.
