That's a shame...Tom Baker was MY doctor, and at the time a younger me was completely infatuated with Romana. 62 is far too young.

While not the noblest Romana of them all, and even that I personally liked Romana II better.. I did appreciate how Tamm played the role (was written) much closer to an equal of the Doctor, as opposed to Lalla Ward's version that generally came off as more of a companion/assistant.

Can't say I know her from anything else, but her Romana was a formidable woman.

How odd, and sad.

I just finished watching the Key to time the other day. Last night or the night before Lise and I were talking about Lalla Ward and how weird it was the she was Astrid in the Key to time, and then Romana afterwards.

Not to threadjack, but did you know that Lalla Ward married Tom Baker, and then after divorcing him, later married Richard Dawkins?

RIP Mary Tamm, I was a fan.

Ward & Dawkins were introduced by former Doctor Who writer/Season 17 head writer Douglas Adams.

I like this show but it was clear after the ratings for the premiere it wasn't long for this world. I'm quite taken with Princess Michelle Benjamin. I guess I'll just have to enjoy my TV crush on her until Kings disappears into the big fade.
