Mary Tamm passed away today at the age of 62 after an 18-month battle with cancer. Tamm played the Doctor's companion Romana, alongside Tom Baker. A phenomenal actress, she also had roles on Wire in the Blood, Eastenders, and many great live theatre productions, including Private Lives and Abigail's Party.

"On set and offstage, her earthy northern humour and self-deprecating wit brightened every occasion. She was a consummate actress, and immensely popular in the profession," said her husband, Marcus Ringrose. "We will all miss her."

Steven Moffat announced that, while we will see Amy and Rory during the upcoming seventh season, their story will come to a "heartbreaking end." Matt Smith says he will miss Arthur Darvill and Karen Gillan, but "the great thing about 'Doctor Who' is its ability to change."

Moffat says the doctor will be getting a new companion, but is giving no details about "he, she or it."

Maybe. During an interview with SFX magazine, Karl Urban seems to have revealed the name of Cumberbatch's Star Trek 2 villain.

When asked about Cumberbatch, Urban said, "He's awesome, he's a great addition, and I think his Gary Mitchell is going to be exemplary."

Yep. Gary Mitchell. For anyone who doesn't know, Gary Mitchell is a character from Star Trek's second pilot episode, "Where No Man has Gone Before." An old Starfleet Academy friend of Kirk's, Gary Mitchell became an insane psychic with god-like powers after the Enterprise tried to cross the Great Barrier at the edge of the galaxy.

Of course Urban could just be trolling us and mentioning a character that isn't even in the movie. It sounds like something J.J. Abrams would have someone do. What do you think? Would you like to see Gary Mitchell in the new movie? If not, what villain would you prefer?
