    Having just watched Eastenders on BBC3 :(

    What TV has left the biggest lump, not that kind :eek:


    My vote goes for Carter reading out Mark's letter in E.R.

    I'd have to go with Tasha Yar's (Star Trek:TNG 1st head of security) funeral.
    No I'm not crying, it's just something in my eye. And yes I do always get something in my eye at that exact moment everytime I watch that particular episode.

    Trek Trivia - The Tasha Yar's penultimate episode was Symbiosis. At the end of the episode Picard and Crusher walk out of the cargo bay and just as the doors close behind them you can see Tasha waving goodbye.

    Geeeeeeeeeek.

    Setting world events aside.
    In a personal sense, " left " as in still makes me sad to remember it happening...
    May 1st 1994, seventh lap, San Marino Grand Prix, Tamburello :(

    In a perfect world He would teach Michael Schumacher how to spell C-H-A-L-L-E-N-G-E. :clap:

    I'm with Gringott on that one...

    Mind you, I didn't actually watch the race: I was having my own little boycott! I was upset that they didn't see fit to cancel the race after Roland Ratzenburger died in qualifying (or was it practice? I forget...)

    I watched it and it was grim. What was especially poignant was the Steve Rider/Murray Walker review of Senna's life a few days later. The bit that really got me was the silent end to the programme: the on-board footage of the car crossing the line and approaching Tamburello, then fading to black... Totally miserable.

    On a lighter note, Lassie films often have me choking.

    Lucy dying on ER.

    If we're talking about non-ficional TV, Sept 11th without a doubt. Sad, terrifying, surreal...

    Upset in a traumatised way by the BBC's Warriors (Kosovo drama) and Bloody Sunday (the James Nesbitt one), both fantastic pieces of drama though.

    For those of you who remember.... Dunblane.
    I was fine until they released the names of the children, and put up pictures of them all one by one at the end of the news... in total silence. I grieved as if I knew them all personally... I'm welling up now at the thought of it.

    Buffy's death at the end of Season 5 (have to be specific as she died twice before Season 5 :laugh: )

    Xavier's death in the last ever XMEN (believe me this was not a kids show IMO) :blush:

    Mel Rees the Sheffield United FC goalkeeper who was a fan favourite contracted a terminal illness, in his last few weeks he was brought onto the pitch to say farewell, I kid you not when I say everyone from big burly skinheads to 6 year old lads was crying :(

    9/11 was unique, it didn't seem to be happening so I couldn't emotionally attach to the events at the time, without doubt the most incredible thing I've ever seen.

    Dunblane rather than making me sad initially made me very angry, I was gutted when Hamilton killed himself as I wanted him to feel the wrath of the entire world till the day he died.......he got off easy IMO :mad:

    The events on September 11th and other real life events mentioned do make E.R. etc very insignificant.

    I really was refering to fictional TV

    I am just glad no one has mentioned Princess Di I couldn't understand the grief felt by so many

    Diana'a death had no effect on me at all, I too was confused by the level of emotion, I felt like I was missing something :rolleyes:

    Got another one that brought a lump (hate that phrase :D )

    Angel season 1 when Doyle sacrifices himself.

    Hey, I can see me getting a "wuss" image if I keep this up :suicide: :laugh:

    I have to agree with the attack on Lucy and Carter, they just threw it in at the end of one episode

    my jaw literally hit the floor

    the subsequent episode was ridiculously sad

    Real life I suppose 1 Concord crash, 2 Shuttle Crashes, 1 WTC destruction is quite shocking

    Also seeing the footage of nuclear flasks being tested was shocking poor 46,009!!!!!
