It’s a tale of intrigue, danger, and Doctors! It’s the 20th Anniversary special, and a multi-Doctor episode, so obviously we needed to choose it for our 5th Doctor episode. Join us as we discuss The Five Doctors.

Spoiler alert:
We’ve both seen it several times, and still enjoy it.

Mary Tamm, Romana I, Died Today

Posted by: Dr. Geek

A friend of mine forwarded this to me earlier today. I think it about says it all. We will miss you Mary Tamm.

Mary Tamm

Tributes have been paid to “truly beautiful” Doctor Who actress Mary Tamm, who died today at the age of 62.
The star was best known for playing the first incarnation of the Doctor’s companion Romana, alongside Tom Baker, but recently starred in TV series Wire In The Blood, Paradise Heights and Jonathan Creek. Her last role was in EastEnders, playing Orlenda in 2009.

Tamm, whose parents were Estonian, had a long career on stage and screen, with roles in films including The Odessa File and The Likely Lads, and a recurring role in soap Brookside as Penny Crosbie.

She died at her home in Battersea, south west London after suffering from cancer for 18 months, agent Barry Langford said. The actress, who did not learn English until she went to primary school, leaves her husband, Marcus Ringrose, daughter Lauren and seven-year-old grandson Max.

“Mary was truly beautiful in every way. She was a very spiritual lady who loved nature and adored all animals,” her agent said. “On set and offstage, her earthy northern humor and self-deprecating wit brightened every occasion. She was a consummate actress, and immensely popular in the profession.

“Mary was born in Bradford, the daughter of impoverished refugees, and through sheer talent and hard graft got herself to Rada, starred opposite Jon Voight in The Odessa File, and found a form of immortality as the Time Lady Romana opposite Tom Baker in Doctor Who. We will miss her every day.”
