Patrick Troughton in The Viking Queen

Patrick Troughton (1920 - 1987)

Film DeathsEdit

  • King Lear (1948) [Edmund]: Presumably stabbed to death in a swordfight with Robert Harris. (I haven't seen this version myself, but I know the basic storyline of the play.)
  • The Viking Queen (1967) [Tristram]: Stabbed in the shoulder when Andrew Keir throws a knife at him; he dies from a combination of the wound and exhaustion after traveling a great distance to warn his son.
  • The Omen (1976) [Father Brennan]: Impaled when lightning strikes the lightning rod on the roof of a church, causing the rod to fall on him.

TV DeathsEdit

  • Doctor Who: The War Games (1969) [The Doctor]: Forcibly "regenerated" and transformed into Jon Pertwee by the council of Time Lords. (Not really a "death" scene, but since I've listed the other Doctors' "regeneration" scenes as constituting the "death" of their incarnations, it's only fair to include this one as well.)
  • Survivors: Parasites (1976) [John Millen]: Stabbed in the back (off-screen) by Kevin McNally and Brian Grellis when they steal his houseboat; his body is seen when Delia Paton discovers it.
  • Inspector Morse: The Dead Of Jericho (1987) [George Jackson]: Killed offscreen by Richard Durden. The dialogue reveals he had had his head smashed against his bedpost. (Thanks to Brian).
