R.I.P. Mary Tamm (1950-2012)

Some more sad news from fans of Doctor Who today.

Actress Mary Tamm, who played the original Romana in the series, has of cancer at the age of 62.

Mary Tamm Dead; Tom Baker Pays Tribute

I have always considered Mary Tamm to be the bona fide Romana, though I also enjoyed Lalla Ward's run as the character, but Mary Tamm epitomised the calm, cool, rational Time Lady to a "T". My favourite bits with Mary Tamm's Romana were here introduction at the start of the Key to Time sequence in "The Ribos Operation", "The Stones of Blood:", and The Androids of Tara", and some of her stuff in "The Armageddon Factor".

One of my favourite bits with Mary Tamm's Romana is this one:

Rest In Peace, Mary Tamm. Your joy, wit, and love of life will be missed.
