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."
An old picture of a Beatles jam session contains a man who looks almost exactly like Matt Smith's Doctor. It makes perfect sense when you think about it. If I had a box that gave me access to all of time and space, chilling with the Beatles would be pretty high up on my list of things to do. I'm surprised it took The Doctor until his eleventh generation to get around to it.
Steven Moffat is pretty excited about the photo too.
"Bloody hell!!!" He tweeted, "Clearly we're going to make that episode!! Wonder what it will be like."
