Lord Lucan - not under a council estate then?

I shall be most disappointed if Lord Lucan has been found living as Roger Woodgate in New Zealand for 30-odd years - along with his cat and possum for company, as reported today. The self-styled "psychic cop" Keith Charles assured me years ago that the allegedly homicidal peer was dead and buried under a council estate someplace - he sensed this as a clairvoyant. More on Charles here. First, The Sun's great white shark. Now this.

Well, it is the Silly Season - all the proper journalists are on holiday.

He looks nothing like Lucan and in any case I have it on good authority the fugitive earl is in Bolivia, or is it Argentina? Nice possum, though. I wonder where I can get one?

Dear Madame Arcati - I looked under every bed in New Zealand when I was writing my book about it recently and I assure you that Lord Lucan is not there. However Marilyn Monroe is in sheltered housing in Invercargill.
With best wishes, Duncan Fallowell

His heir (I forget whether he took the title or not), George Bingham, often writes his father's name down when playing that game in which people pair off and one contestant has to describe a famous person to the other. He, the heir, is a charming fellow (despite this habit) but a bit too keen on the internet perhaps. But who am I to talk?

(He thinks his father sent a hood into the flat that night to steal some heirlooms that he might not have won in a divorce... And that his father committed felo-de-se in the Channel.)
