God bless you Mary. You only had six episodes but you really made them your own.

You are right. Leela and Romana were my favorites.

I was a bigger fan of Romana II back in the day...but going back and rewatching the Romana I episodes changed my mind. She was fantastic.
Eternal rest grant unto her O Lord, and may the perpetual light shine upon her. May she rest in peace, Amen.

Tom Baker was the best Dr. Who in my opinion.
I really had a thing for her, back during the "Key to Time" story arc.

I am/was the same way with Romana II but I eventually learned to really appreciate Romana I.

Six stories — 26 episodes in all, IIRC (5 4-part and 1 6-part stroy); a full season.
But yes, I enjoyed her character and am sad to hear of her passing.

PING for my wife -- the world's most fanatical Doctor Who
fan -- to see, later.
(She calls me "The Heretic," because I like David Tennant best.) ;)
