The many screen deaths of Alan Dale

Heart-attacks, serial killers, gunshot wounds and Thalaron radiation. You name it, Alan Dale’s characters have been killed by it…

Warning: contains spoilers for Alan Dale's roles between 1985 and 2014. Listing them here would more or less defeat the object.

He didn’t die in The X-Files, nor in The West Wing. He got a little bit blown up in 24 and NCIS, and River Song sort of paralysed him in ER. Those were his good days.

Benedict Cumberbatch (Star Trek 2, Starter For Ten) and Martin Freeman (The Hobbit, Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy) star in Sherlock, a thrilling, fast-paced update of Arthur Conan Doyle's classic detective, set in present-day London.

From dour doctors to dysfunctional detectives, there's a quirk to suit every taste on TV – who are your favourites?

These days it's not enough to just be really, really good at your job; we expect our TV professionals to have some distinguishing quirk or eccentricity. Amoral lawyers, inconsiderate doctors and dysfunctional detectives – let's be honest, they're more interesting. The latest addition to the ever-growing list of television shows whose central characters traverse all kinds of boundaries is MonroeJames Nesbitt's brilliant neurosurgeon who is compelled to tell the truth at all times. You can tell he's a maverick as he drinks tea in a mug on the bus, he calls a patient's husband a "self-righteous whingebag" and he diagnoses himself with a "borderline personality disorder". Fortunately we're entertained by watching people flout social mores. In short, there has never been a better time to be a TV maverick. Here
