Doctor Who Companion’s Husband Dies

It has been disclosed that Marcus Ringrose, the husband of the late Mary Tamm who played the first Romana opposite Tom Baker’s Doctor, died only hours after her funeral.

Tamm was the latest in a series of actors who had played companions to the Doctor to have passed away during the past year or so, including Nicholas Courtenay (Brigadier Alistair Lethbridge Stewart), Elisabeth Sladen (Sarah Jane Smith) and Caroline John (Liz Shaw).

Our thoughts are with the family and friends of Marcus Ringrose during this difficult time.
