Doctor Who actress Mary Tamm (Romana) Dies Aged 62

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.

Fans and Friends Come Together to Help

Doctor Who fans are coming together on the net to help out a fellow fan and friend, Johanna Mead. Johanna ( @britgeekgrrl ) is well known at Doctor Who conventions across the US for her detailed and creative costumes, she is also a writer and an English expatriate living in northern California. Unfortunately, her husband had just recently lost his battle against cancer and the online community of fans and friends have come together to help raise money to help offset the costs of the final arrangements.
