Cancer claims Doctor Who star
Tributes have been paid to “truly beautiful” Doctor Who actress Mary Tamm, who died yesterday at the age of 62.
Tamm was best known for playing the first incarnation of the Doctor's companion Romana, alongside Tom Baker.
She had a long career on stage and screen, with roles in films including The Odessa File and The Likely Lads, and in soap Brookside.
She died at her home in London after an 18-month battle with cancer. Husband Marcus Ringrose said: “Mary was truly beautiful in every way.”
