TV Deaths:[]

  • Jonathan Creek: Jack in the Box (1997) [Jack Holiday]: Shot in the head by Robin Soans after Robin forces John to go into his bomb shelter; Robin then places the gun in John's hands to make it look like suicide (not knowing that John's arthritis would have made that impossible). His body is shown afterwards when Bernard Kay, Maureen O'Brien, and Andrew Powell discover him; his death is shown in a flashback when Alan Davies explains what happened.
