I loved a specific line in the specials when the council bloke said something ominous to Bernice something about Royston Vasey have more missing people on record than anywhere else. For me that really encapsulated the horror of the town, the absolute bleakness of the whole thing. I'm pretty sure that show has a higher death count than say The Wire or the Sopranos.

So off the top of my head.

Justin (Oh Justin, my very own Justin) - Buried alive in the front garden with an air-pipe by Herr Lipp.

The guy who got turned into a scarecrow by Farmer Tinsel (for cheating on his wife?).

Pauline - smothered to death by Geoff in a case of mistaken identity.

Lance (the one armed joke shop guy) - Killed by Geoff in a big van (whilst saving Pauline).

Harvey Denton - Died peacefully? and was then resurrected into Benjamin before being vomited out as a frog toad.)

Pop - Murdered by one of his sons after his abuse went too far. Presumably turned into sausages.

Various journalists, council workers, policemen, builders, hitchhikers, tourists, artists - all murdered by Tubbs and Edward.

The Stump-hole cavern incident.

Hundreds of women, captured by Papa Lazarou. Also Bernice's mum, Bernice (for a bit), Tubbs, Iris...

Charity shop ladies. One impaled on spikes, the other kidnapped by Lazarou. The fate of 'that Meryl' is currently unknown.

The victims of the meat outbreak and the nosebleed epidemic. Including Chubby Brown as the mayor.

David Tattsyrup - Lynched by a mob when Tubbs and Edward are blamed for the epidemic.

Daddy, Sunny and numerous other guests including Tank (yeah, looking forward to some heavy fucking)' - Suffocate when an oxygen-controlled sex ritual goes horribly wrong.

Presumably some of the patients of Dr Ira Carlton (Pemberton) when they are refused treatment for not winning his party games.

The missing Grandma on the church roof.

Neds and Tris - Died in a warehouse fire whilst 'fighting crime'.

Must be a few more I've missed?

Seems like those who didn’t die or go missing would be a shorter list.

That simple lad and the little boy who made a Knight Rider style car out of a Fiat Panda with toy weapons and then played vigilante by trying to foil some real bad guys in a warehouse and then got overpowered immediately by these very real criminals. I always wonder what happened to them. The sketch just kind of ends with them getting tied up.

I think the kid screaming "WE'RE GOING TO DIE!" is a clue.

Let’s not forget all the pets and farm animals that also met a premature end. RIP Whisky, for starters.

Edward and Tubbs run over by a train, if they count...

EDIT: Just realised this OP is over two years old, how did this get zero replies initially??

I find it hilarious all of Mark's characters who go in the shop all die including Edward and Tubb's grotesque Son David.

Not a human, but we can add 'a tyre' to the list of victims.  We passed Hadfield about a decade ago and I begged politely requested Mr Rector to take a quick detour so that I could have a nose around.  Enjoyed it very much and nice to see the real village, but as we left we ran over some glass and had to spend the next hour changing the tyre by a roadside.  Perhaps we had inadvertently travelled on a local road, meant only for local people.

Wondered about that at the time!  (loved the bit with him being bald though)

I like the way we're all quite nonchalant about the dozens of corpses, but pointing out the inconsistency in the TV makeover staffing...

If only the sketch ended there! It ends with them trapped in a burning warehouse, nobody knowing their whereabouts, awaiting their inevitable firey death. Not forgetting Neds' mental breakdown of course.

I think in the commentary they talk about a theoretical follow up idea whereby Tris, having suffered severe burns, is put on some form of life support, which Neds - who manages to escape the conflagration unscathed - soups up with the Maxi Power equipment.
