Edward Gorey is probably best known for bringing the grim (and the Grimm) back to children's literature. With The Gashlycrumb Tinies, Gorey crafted a book that taught the alphabet via the gruesome and unfortunate demises of adorable, Edwardian-looking children. Now we've got a delightfully disturbing pastiche for all you Whovians.

There's certainly been no shortage of death in Doctor Who. In fact, short of a handful of episodes, every serial to come out since 1963 has suffered at least one death. Thinking about it, one could probably make a small library of alphabet books devoted to this very subject.

Thankfully, young artist EatToast has done the dirty work of picking from some of the best deaths of both the classic and current series of Who in order to craft a lovely and demented homage to Gorey's grisly classic.

So check out our gallery for a sampling of lives cut short, from Adric to Zygons, and then speed onward to the full thing on EatToast's deviantArt page.
