Hello all,

Probably not the best place to post this, but you may or may not have heard that Mary Tamm has passed away, aged only 62.

It's terribly sad, especially as we seem to have lost so many Classic Who actors and actresses recently.

Apparently she had been battling cancer for some time. I'm sure we all offer our condolensces to her family at this tragic loss.

The Brig.

Oh dear. Just like Elizabeth Sladen, when we were expected Fourth Doctor audio plays with her and Tom Baker! Did Mary Tamm already record hers at least? What a sad, sad, sad day.

Yes, they were recorded. which I thought odd that it was done a year in advance of release. But now we know why.

It is with great sadness that I must tell you that Mary Tamm passed away following (surprise surprise) a short battle with cancer.

My sympathies go out to her family and friends in this difficult time.

This is heartbreaking. I loved her Romana. Another devastating loss to Doctor Who.

I really hate cancer.

Sally Ride 2 days ago, now this. My first companion, in Ribos, in that elegant white gown, and her banter with Tom. So glad her legacy will live in their audios next year.

The show is almost 50 years old, The people that we watch on DVDs who were in there 20s 30s are now in there 50's 60's 70's 80's and time is catching up.

Its very sad to say this but we can expect news like this and have to be realistic that these people that have brought us so much joy will not be around for ever apart from there wonderful performances.

I am looking forward to Mary's Big Finish audios.

She was only 62. It's that awful cancer. Too many people have gone away from it.
