Doctor Who actress Mary Tamm dies

Doctor Who star Mary Tamm, who played companion Romana alongside Tom Baker, has died aged 62.

The actress, who was born in Bradford, West Yorkshire, fought a long battle with cancer and died in hospital in London.

Agent Barry Langford, who confirmed the news, said she had a "zest for life".

"She was a darling companion and wonderfully witty and kind," said Tom Baker, who played the fourth Doctor. "I'm so sorry to hear of her death."

Colin Baker, who played the sixth Doctor, wrote on Twitter: "Shellshocked to hear Mary Tamm is gone. A funny, caring, talented, lovely and down to earth lady."

2. Thats too bad.

My favorite Dr Who companion has always been Sarah Jane Smith (Elizabeth Stanton), who also passed away recently.
