Mary Tamm Interview

In the Autumn of 2009 I had the pleasure of interviewing Mary Tamm for CT (issue 377). Mary was a delight – a lovely, warm person with a glint in her eye and a wicked sense of humour.

Caroline John

The death of Caroline John, aka Liz Shaw, has been announced.

The DWAS would like to send its deepest condolences to her husband Geoffrey and the rest of Caroline's family. She will be sorely missed.

The Eleven Faces of Doctor Who

The piece by Hayden Gribble in the new CT has set me thinking about what I would include in an "Eleven Faces" season.

On the basis of them being "roughly 90 minutes" (by the way Hayden, The Two Doctors isn't!!) my list is:

1st Doctor: The Romans
2nd Doctor: The Krotons
3rd Doctor: Day of the Daleks SE
4th Doctor: City of Death
5th Doctor: Earthshock
6th Doctor: Mark of the Rani
