R.I.P. Deborah Watling (1948-2017)

Sad news in the world of Doctor Who

Deborah Watling has died. The actress played companion Victoria Waterfield during the Patrick Troughton era of the show

Deborah Watling, Doctor Who Companion, Dies at 69

I really only knew Deborah Watling through her work on Doctor Who, where she took on the role of Victoria Waterfield from "The Evil of the Daleks" (1967) through "Fury From the Deep" (1968). After leaving the show, she appeared in numerous TV roles including Danger UXB (1979), Rising Damp: Hello Young Lovers (1978), and Doctor in Charge (1972) as well as doing a lot of work in the theatre.

My favourite moment with Victoria from the Second Doctor's period is this bit from "The Tomb of the Cybermen":





Rest In Piece, Deborah. Your memory will live on when I close my eyes. Goodbye.
