RIP Mary Tamm, The First Romana From 'Doctor Who'

Mary Tamm, the first Romana from Doctor Who has died at age 62.

Anglophenia’s Fraser McAlpine wrote it better than any of us could:

I’m writing this on behalf of every Doctor Who fan who finds it hard to know what the appropriate response may be when one of the many actors who gave their favorite show life, loses theirs. I’ve never met the actress Mary Tamm – whose death from cancer at age 62 was announced today – most likely very few people reading this have, and yet, ever since her stint as the first Romana in the last ’70s, playing an impossibly glamorous Time Lady opposite Tom Baker’s Fourth Doctor, she (or rather Romana) has been a very real part of my mental landscape.
