This is shaping up to be a bad year for 70's era Doctor Who companions. The BBC is reporting that Mary Tamm, who played Romana I, had died from cancer.

At the time, I'd have put it down to the sheer novelty of a story arc that lasted and entire season (!), but when I watched the season on DVD again recently, I realized how much of it was due to Mary Tamm's performance as Romana (as well as a couple of stories with great scripts.)

Here are a couple of clips from Tamm's first appearance on the show, from "The Ribos Operation":
