    So I was watching a certain classic Doctor Who story yesterday and it got me thinking, how many have died inside the Tardis?

    Inside the TARDIS? Just the incarnations of the Doctor, I believe. Plus A few Cybermen, I think. I can't think of anyone else, though?

    No, I can't. Adric was a TARDIS Traveller, but, he died outside the TARDIS. Not sure about Katarina, I've never sat through the Recon of Daleks Master Plan

    Not Adric but you are close. I only brought it up because I was thinking besides the monster of the week was there any other humans (not necessarily earthlings) who have died in the Tardis.

    One of the Van Baalen brothers died in "Journey to the Center of the Tardis," before the reset button was hit.

    Some of the human troopers - and Professor Kyle - in Earthshock; Russell in Attack of the Cybermen, as mentioned; at least one Sontaran in Invasion of Time (possibly a special case, as he's zapped with a forbidden Time Lord weapon; the at least one is because there's one other Sontaran who came aboard who's never seen to leave or be killed. It's been speculated that he's still wandering around in there...).
    And as mentioned, Grace and Chang Lee in the TV movie, but they then get resurrected by the temporal orbit.

    Grace and Chang Lee don't count, they didn't stay dead.

    Russel in Attack of The Cybermen, yea, forgot about him

    Oooh, yea, the Van Balaan brother, I wasn't thinking of NuWho :alienblush:

    Professor Kyle was the one I was thinking about after watching Earthshock, the troopers died outside of the Tardis. The doctor kills the Cyberleader (pretty over zealously I might add) and Nyssa kills the other Cyberman after. So much for Temporal Grace! Yeah I would say reset button deaths don't count.

    There's that Dalek in The Parting of the Ways. And the Master in the TVM.

    Yea, but, like The Doctors I mentioned, that Master incarnation did stay dead (At least to our knowledge)

    Romana probably regenerated in the TARDIS. Not sure if that counts.

    She died in a spaceship's airlock. There's surviving footage of the moments leading up to it, and it's a very powerful scene.

    Don't forget "Nephew", the Ood in The Doctor's Wife. For that matter, House was another casualty by virtue of being forced out of the TARDIS.

    Technically Idris' body died in the TARDIS, though her consciousness was already gone, replaced by the TARDIS consciousness. Presumeably when the TARDIS consciousness got back where it was meant to be it just zapped the body away, as it just vanished.

    We didn't necessarily see the Second Doctor's regeneration, and the first time we saw the Third, he came out of the TARDIS. So he could have regenerated there. The Third regenerated just a few meters away from the TARDIS. The Fourth and Seventh were within a few kilometers of it. (Perhaps the Seventh's distance from the TARDIS when he "died" was the reason his regeneration into the Eighth was so delayed.) We don't yet know how the Eighth (or the "Hurt Doctor") regenerated, nor do we know how or where it will happen for the Eleventh.
