In Memorium: Mary Tamm

Lovely British actress Mary Tamm was best known in fandom for her brief role as “Romana” on the long-running BBC science fiction series “Doctor Who”, starring opposite Tom Baker during the 1978–1979 story arc “The Key to Time”. She appeared on numerous theatre productions and British television series over a forty year period. Her best known film role was in “The Odessa File” in 1973. She passed away today at the age of sixty-two, following an extended battle with cancer. The Catacombs extends its condolences to her family, friends and fans.

This is such a bummer, so many of the Classic Who cast members are dying! We lost Nicholas Courtney and Elisabeth Sladen last year, and now Mary Tamm, it just sucks. She was so gorgeous, classy and sexy as Romana (Mark I), and she had a great chemistry with Tom Baker! May she rest in peace.
