RIP Mary Tamm

“Doctor Who” Actress Mary Tamm Dies Aged 62


I haven't even seen her yet. We're still going through Tom Baker episodes with Sarah Jane and the only Romana episode I've watched is City of Death, which has the 2nd Romana. Tom Baker must be devastated with this happening about a year after Lis Sladen. (And that makes the 2nd Doctor Who companion this year.)

Very sad. :-(

I have the whole of her series in a boxset which I got the Christmas before last, and she is lovely. She's the first companion I remember and so has a special place in my heart. Devastated to hear she's gone. Former companions seem to be going one right after the other these days. :-(

It's so sad. It must be very hard on the Classic Who fans.

Yeah. I'm kind of half a Classic fan nowadays and, yeah, it's hard. Especially after just having got to know all these actors and actresses on the DVD interviews. They all seemed such lovely people!

It's weird. I was heavily involved in Star Trek fandom in the late 70's and early 80's. I can remember seeing people in costume as the 4th Doctor and you'd THINK I would have been watching on my local PBS station, but for some reason I was just never interested. Maybe I thought of it as a kid's show...in spite of my still being a kid? No idea. The DVD interviews are HILARIOUS. Tom Baker comes across as so much more lovable than I would have thought.

Heh, I guess it was different over here. You just grew up watching DW as a matter of course. It was Saturday tea-time telly, and we all watched it!

And yes, with you there on Tom Baker. He's incredibly arrogant and yet still comes over with the huge amounts of charm he always had as the Doctor which mean he can get away with almost anything! *g*
