Alleged deathEdit

The Tripods fandom was shocked when it was reported in 24 August 2002 that Ceri Seel was dead. This rumor persisted for almost two years, even at the Internet Movie Database. In 2004, however, he reported himself to be alive to his former castmate Jim Baker. The circumstances of this false message, the reasons for his disappearance and where he was in those two years, however, are still unclear. He was believed to be in Scotland for those 2 years, unaware of the rumours of his death.
