RIP Doctor Kish
Devastating news today of the passing of Chris Thompson, the one and only Doctor Kish.
It’s been a truly dreadful year for the Charlton community, and Chris, or Ketts as he was also affectionately known is another very sad loss to the Addicks’ family. My sincerest condolences to his family and friends, one of whom is Phil, who wrote a lovely tribute to Chris here.
I had met Chris a few times, mostly at a train station or outide a chippy, but we emailed often and he was a great source of blogging inspiration, when that ‘can’t be bothered to blog wave’ would crest over the top of me, he was always there with encouragement.
Doctor Kish came out of the embers of Frankie Valley, which was innovative and funny whereas Doctor Kish was almost a Charlton trademark – simple, informed, distinct.
Like Seb Lewis, Chris never missed a game and would travel all over the country from his Kettering home to watch Charlton and then get home with a cup of tea and knock out a daily blog post.
Life at the moment is not the same, and Charlton certainly won’t be without Doctor Kish. RIP Chris.
