epiphenomenon (n.) The alleged spontaneous appearance of phantom strips of cloth on one’s shoulders.

It is rather unfortunate that the death of Felix Bowness at 87, a veteran TV comic actor, was eclipsed by the deaths of Patrick Swayze and Keith Floyd. Although the name of Felix Bowness will not be that familiar to people these days, he was well-known enough to have received the big red book in ‘This is Your Life’ back in 1985.
Bowness is perhaps best known for playing Fred Quilly in the BBC sitcom ‘Hi De Hi’, although he also played alongside Benny Hill in his TV shows of the 60s.
