For me, and a bit ironic as I can't remember his name, it was the prisoner in Mind of Evil who became good. I think it was thee childlike nature of the character post treatment that made it a lot more upsetting. Closest thing Who did to ever killing a child onscreen.

Lucie Miller's death was probably the closest Doctor Who has ever come to making me feel legitimately sad over someone dying. Those of you familiar with the Big Finish audio stories will know who I'm talking about.

I was more upset by Alex's death. Killing Susan's son was incredible hard, especially since he was starting to bond with the Doctor in other stories.

Alex's death didn't really hit me all that hard. Probably because we didn't really get enough time to truly connect with him, since he only appeared in 4 episodes. Had we gotten a few more stories with him I'm sure it would have been much more profound.

When you think of it, the 8th doctor has lost almost every companion he travelled with in BF.

Samson and Jemma (Terror Firma) killed by Davros or driven insane
Crizz (Dies in Absolution)
Lucy Miller
Charley (He believes she died in The Girl Who Never Was)
Molly Osulliven (Blown up along with the Dalek Time Controller)
and then the new companion in Doom Coalition (forgot name) who died in the last boxset.

Just to be thoroughly pedantic, but...

Closer than killing Adric? Adric and Nyssa were described as "the children" in Black Orchid.

Also, in The Chase, one of the women who jumps off the Mary Celeste is carrying a baby. Gwendolyn in Ghostlight. Around the same age as Ace, how old was she in that?

They knocked off a kid in Thin Ice, didn't they? But that's the new series lest we talk about that Evil or Very Mad

My ultimate fantasy amounts to every nu who companion returning for a Dalek mega-special, in which all of them are exterminated in the pre-credits sequence, permanently.

The Doctress then decides to erase them all from her memory using a modified mind probe, but pulls the wrong switch and regenerates into Cillian Murphy.

Bernad Cribbins character was the only tollerable companion. But he is tainted by being associated with Tate which is like having a nice pair of shoes only to then tred in dog muck.

Adric, I had bet my brother a Mars bar that he wasn't really dead. Laughing

Well, in Big Finish's Scorpian King, Adric is revived and became a hormonal insane adult bent on wanting sex with Nyssa. He ends up dying again at the end. I wish I was making this up, but I am not.

They didn't even use Waterhouse as Adric in this one.

My name is Adric and I am from Barcelona!

No, please don't hit me, Dr. Fawlty!

Grigory and Natasha from Revelation. It pains me that they couldn't get the door open quick enough to avoid getting exterminated. No orchestra, no slow mo, just their screams and them collapsing to the ground. Today they'd be brought back with magic fairy dust.
