The 45 deaths of Doctor Who

Following the interesting response to my previous post about a minor production details that won't affect viewers in the slightest, I have been inspired to come up with a list of dates on which fans no doubt claimed that 'Doctor Who died' for them.

I did have a think to work out if I agreed with any of them, but then realised – no, of course not. Doctor Who's all about change and renewal. It'll never die. Ever.

Please point out any I may have missed.
