Left Side of the Aisle #68 - Part 6

Death of Mary Tamm, Romana #1

Mary Tamm has died of cancer, aged 62. I know the name won't mean a lot or even anything to most of you, but it means something to some of us. Mary Tamm was a British actress; she did some theater and some movies and a fair amount of British TV.

But to some of us, she will always be the first Romana, starring in Doctor Who during the Tom Baker era.

Romana's actual name was Romanadvoratrelundar, but the Doctor called her Romana because he said that in the event of danger, by the time he called out her whole name, it would be too late.

By all accounts, Mary Tamm was a very sweet, quite likeable person. So RIP, Mary Tamm.
