RIP the good Romana:

[Mary] Tamm, who played the Doctor’s companion Romana alongside Tom Baker, died at her home in south London after losing her 18 month fight against [cancer].

Sadly, its apparently not been a good year for the acresses who played companions who were the Doctor’s intellectual equals.  This from June:

Caroline John, best known for playing Doctor Who’s companion Liz Shaw, has passed away at the age of 72.

John portrayed Liz Shaw in four 1970 episodes of television series Doctor Who, opposite third Doctor John Pertwee. Her character was present at the emergence of the reptilian Silurians.

Double damn.
