Farewell to a Doctor Who Legend

It was announced yesterday that Deborah Watling, who played the Second Doctor’s companion Victoria Waterfield, lost her battle with lung cancer at the age of 69. Victoria joined the Doctor and Jamie in their travels after her father was killed by the Daleks in 1967’s “The Evil of the Daleks” and was introduced to a world she never imagined existed. Although she enjoyed seeing all of time and space, she eventually settled down in 1968 as the adopted daughter of Frank and Maggie Harris.

I had the opportunity to meet Deborah Watling at a convention last year (even got her autograph), and she was such a kind and sweet lady–so much fun to talk to. I dearly hope she rests in peace.
