*** Creator/JamieBamber ''epitomizes'' this. Hoban is just one of ''many'' of his characters to be killed off--as of 2014, the count stands at ''nine''. The first--[[Series/TheScarletPimpernel Tony Dewhurst]]--kicked off this trend by dying in the first episode of the series, just like Hoban did. Two others ([[Series/HoratioHornblower Archie Kennedy]] and [[Series/LawAndOrderUK Matt Devlin]]) perished in an eerily similar fashion (BloodFromTheMouth, HeroicSacrifice), and still another two (on ''Series/ColdCase'' and ''Series/GhostWhisperer'') bit the dust even faster than either Hoban or Dewhurst--they were onscreen throughout the entire episode, but had actually been killed off [[PosthumousCharacter within the first few minutes of the show]]. Another--[[WebVideo/StarTrekContinues Mr. Simone]]--seems to have been killed off just to lampshade this trend, to the point of outright making him a RedShirt, and his film roles aren't exempt from this either, as he dies at the end of ''Ghost Rig'' and ''John Doe: Vigilante''.

Vigilante'', and the most recent one, [[Series/TheMessengers Vincent Plowman]], was all but guaranteed, given that he was one of the villains.

** Creator/JamieBamber, period. Hoban is just one of ''many'' of his characters to be killed off--the very first of whom, [[Series/TheScarletPimpernel Tony Dewhurst]], basically kicked off this trend by dying in the first episode of the series, just like Hoban did. Then, two others ([[Series/HoratioHornblower Archie Kennedy]] and [[Series/LawAndOrderUK Matt Devlin]]), perished in an eerily similar fashion (BloodFromTheMouth, HeroicSacrifice), and still another two (on ''Series/ColdCase'' and ''Series/GhostWhisperer'') bit the dust even faster than either Hoban or Dewhurst--they were onscreen throughout the entire episode, but had actually been killed off [[PosthumousCharacter within the first few minutes of the show]], and another, [[WebVideo/StarTrekContinues Mr. Simone]] seems to have been killed off just to lampshade this trend. His appearance on ''Series/RizzoliAndIsles'' just barely subverted this, having his character fall from a bridge. . .and rescued in the next episode. His film roles aren't exempt from this either, as he dies at the end of ''John Doe: Vigilante''.
