TV Deaths[edit | edit source]
- The Baron: Countdown (1967) [Arkin Morley]: Accidentally impaled when he falls on an antique sword while fighting with Steve Forrest.
- A Christmas Carol (1984) [Ghost of Christmas Present]: Following Dickens' novel, this ghost's "lifetime" on Earth only lasts as long as Christmas, so Edward vanishes at the stroke of 3 AM while speaking to George C. Scott. Since he's a supernatural being, this is probably not really a "death," but just the end of his earthly existence.
- Alfred Hitchcock Presents: The Hunted (1988) [Drummond]: Killed by a SWAT team after firing blanks into a crowd from a high rise building.
- EastEnders (2009) [Tommy]: Dies in hospital of cancer. (Thanks to Brian)
