On safari

"Welcome... to Donneybrook Medical Centre"

As the saying goes: Death will find a way.

Dressed as a wizard

Short of turning up in scrubs with a needle, it's hard to imagine a more perfect Hallowe'en outfit: "Harold Potter and the Pensioner of Azkaban."

Enjoying a day out at Lord's

Getting a paunch on, by the looks of things, and settling in for a long innings. Who says crime doesn't pay?

Playing with his Smartphone

Visibly disappointed that "Candy Crush Saga" is not affiliated with the over-50's travel group.

On the run(way) at Gatwick

Thanks to JB for this. And Happy Landings! They say it's still the safest way to travel (but don't try the beef... or the chicken).

Murderer on the Orient Express

On the train from Stockholm to Gothenburg. No doubt he was attracted by the famously high suicide rate - no questions asked.

(credit to Jo in Sweden for this)

At the British Museum Café

A good spot here from William in London, who claims "Fred" was taking a Tipp-Ex pen to the Times obits column.

After a day at the cricket

 A fine left-handed bat in his day, H.F. Shipman once put on a double century in Lancashire - though some estimates put his score considerably higher.

Hiding in a maze

Another BBC recruitment gaffe. But these kids have nothing to fear - not for about 60 years

Up to his old tricks

This old dear's forgotten the first rule of road safety - look left and right before opening your building society booklet.

Shopping at Curry's PC World

Browsing a few consumer electronics. No harm in that. It's (largely) his money.

At the Papal Conclave

He may have missed out on the top job, but there were apparently holier men out there.

On Guardian Soulmates

That word means 'suitable to be Pope'. Debatable, but a step up from a Nazi.

One-off special: Where's Fred West?

...something poetic about the hangman's noose here.

Sender Jim admits it's not the best picture, but insists this was Fred West checking Guardian Jobs on the Circle Line. Nothing for builders, sadly, but a vacancy for a GP.
