We are sad to report that Deborah Watling, who played companion Victoria, has died aged 69 following a short battle with cancer.
Watling made her name as a child actress, appearing as a regular character in ITV’s The Invisible Man series. She then went on to appear in several TV and film roles, but it’s for her portrayal as the Second Doctor’s companion, Victoria Waterfield, that we will remember her.
Deborah Watling was diagnosed with lung cancer just six weeks ago. She will be missed and our thoughts are with her family at this sad time.
