TV Deaths [edit | edit source]

  • Hamlet (1970) [Gertrude]: Presumably poisoned when she drinks from a poisoned chalice that Richard Johnson had intended for Richard Chamberlain. (I haven’t seen this myself, but we all know the play).
  • Great Expectations (1974) [Miss Havisham]: Accidentally sets herself on fire when sitting in her wedding dress and she knocks over a candelabra onto the dress. Michael York is too late to save her, her injuries are too severe. (Thanks to Brian)
