First just a quick note before my news I wish to thank Louis Trapani for allowing my wife (Jessica Burke) and I (Anthony Burdge) to blog here for him and the Gallifreyan Embassy. If you are not familiar with us we are the Editors/Contributors of The Mythological Dimensions of Doctor Who and The Mythological Dimensions of Neil Gaiman both published by Kitsune Books. We have been contributors to Doctor Who Podshock and guests as well. You will be able to hear about our latest book The Mythological Dimensions of Neil Gaiman in an upcoming episode of Podshock.
I am sadden to report that once again we have lost someone in the Doctor Who community. A month after the news of Caroline John (Liz Shaw) passing, we have lost another actress that played a companion on Doctor Who, Mary Tamm. You will remember her for her role as the original Romana in the Tom Baker era. She introduced us to the Time Lady companion, Romana in 'The Key to Time' series of 1978 to 1979.
The Mirror reports that she lost her long battle against cancer this morning. She was only 62 years old.
