R.I.P. Caroline John (1940-2012)

Sad news in the world of Doctor Who today.

Actress Caroline John, who played Elizabeth "Liz" Shaw in the first series of the Jon Pertwee era, has died at the age of 72.

Doctor Who Actress Caroline John Dies aged 72

I really did enjoy her in the role of Liz Shaw in Doctor Who, but she also was an excellent actress in other roles, notably on stage.

Rest in Peace, Caroline. We can all be consoled by the fact that you and Jon are now travelling together in the TARDIS, along with Elisabeth Sladen.

Just spotted this news elsewhere myself. Very sad, I always liked Liz very much.

I thought that Liz Shaw was such an underrated character in Doctor Who, and Caroline was quite good opposite Jon Pertwee in his first season as the Doctor. I love her in "Spearhead From Space" and "Inferno" quite a bit, and wish she had had a chance to travel properly in the TARDIS with Jon's Doctor.
