Five years ago, British actor Edward Burnham died aged 98. I think that was probably the first Doctor Who related death since I joined the Forum. Might be wrong, I walk in eternity....

Barrie Ingham, Barry Newbery, Hugh Walters, Rex Robinson, Peter Howell, Shane Shelton, Nigel Terry, and Bob Hornery (as mentioned on the Sapphire and Steel list) all went between your signing up to the forum and Mr Burnham's death.  I reply because you blatantly wanted that to be answered. No doubt many extras died too but let's just stick to folk who were credited actors for ease...
