About the storyThis section will include facts about the story to give you, the reader, an idea of the context of which it is set. For example, I will include which Doctor the story has and the companion(s) he is travelling with. Furthermore, I will also include a quick synopsis about the plot of the story, as well as information about when it aired and the number of episodes in the story.
The Death CountThis section will include:
Death TollThe total number of deaths in the story.
Deaths I will be counting:
- Dalek/Cybermen/Andriod deaths
- Deaths in which the deceased comes back to life (they still died)
- Deaths we don't see but are allured to, ONLY if the character has been seen alive on-screen
- Spaceship explosions E.g. Dalek crucible explosion in Journey's End
If there was an instance in which any number of deaths were not included due to the conditions stated above, I will write a note concerning that in the post.
Death RatingA number that will be calculated using the number of deaths and the total run time of the story. The calculation:
I will make a page on my blog to create a table where I will store and rank each story, using the death rating as the ranking criteria.
Death DescriptionsHere, I will describe each death. I will include the time at which the death occurred, the character that died, and the cause of their death.
The Table PageOn a separate page to the blog posts, I will have a table to compile all the data for easy comparison. The table will include data such as the story, the death toll and air-dates, and will be ranked upon the death rating (to two decimal places).
On that page may also be some superlatives, such as the "deadliest story" or the "fastest death" or the "deadliest single episode". I may think of more as I come across them.
