Actress Mary Tamm has passed away of cancer. She was 62.

In 1974, Tamm co-starred with Jon Voight and Maximilian Schell in The Odessa File. However, she was best known for her one season in the late 70s on the British sci-fi TV series Doctor Who as Lady Romana alongside the Doctor played by Tom Baker in The Key to Time saga. It's been at least thirty years since I've seen those episodes but I will always remember Romana because she was so easy on the eyes. Let's just say that Romana was very popular with the men and boys in the Goldstein household.

Tamm's death comes 15 months after the passing of Elisabeth Sladen, who played Sarah Jane, another beloved companion to Doctor Who. Sladen also succunbed to cancer in her early 60s.

Here's a short clip of the Doctor, Romana and the robotic dog, K-9, goofing around at Christmas time.
