Doctor Who In Memoriam 2018

DOCTOR WHO IN MEMORIAM 2018

Remembering those from the world of Doctor Who who have passed away this year.

Well, here I am, Maudlin McDoomyguts (thats my real name, but I had to change it because there was already one in Equity) with my annual List of the Dead.

It is an annual thing from me – just my little project to pay respect to this who illuminated my childhood (which is ongoing) and who sadly died this year. They will live forever thanks to crossing paths, however briefly, with the universe’s best time traveller.

I made the decision to include a section featuring those whose deaths were reported late so didn’t feature in earlier videos. I usually only tend to do the people who were missed off because they died at the end of the previous year but there were so many who had slipped through the cracks that I make no apology for giving them a section. I might not always to this (I mean, where do I draw the line? 1963?) but we’ll see. My video, my rules.

Derrick Sherwin, one of the many Doctor Who luminaries to pass away this year.

I owe many of those featured – Dorka Nieradzik, Peter Miles, Ian, Dow, Rio Fanning, Bill Sellars, Michael Pickwoad, Ian Dow, Pamela Ann Davy  – extra thanks because they took part in my Who’s Round project. I’d urge you to seek out those interviews if you haven’t already.

Please spread this as far and wide as you can. Thank you.
