|“||Adric: Not even once.||”|
— Public service announcement from the 80's.
Addric eventually blew up and killied all the dinosaurs by crashing a ship into Earth 65 million years ago because why not? This was one of the first of many stupid moments of “Why can’t we just go back in time and save him Doctor?" "We can’t because handwave.” It was a novel exit for one of the Doctor’s companions and richly deserved too.
Truth is the Doctor could've easily gone back and rescued Addric, he just didn't want to.

I’ve never seen anyone on /who/ defend Addric.
I still liked him, but I never said that.
At least he wasn't as bad as Mel.
No, no I don't think Mel deserves that. At the very least she was eyecandy, this obnoxious little squirt had nothing going for him.
