Lynda Bellingham has passed away
Actress and presenter Lynda Bellingham has sadly passed away, aged 66, after a battle against cancer. Doctor Who fans may know her for playing the role of The Inquisitor in the 14-part serial The Trial of a Time Lord alongside Colin Baker’s Sixth Doctor.
Colin Baker (@SawbonesHex) tweeted his condolences:
Very sad news about dear Lynda Bellingham. A friend for many years since we first worked together in 1978. A brave inspiring lady.
Fifth Doctor Peter Davison (@PeterDavison5) also tweeted:
I don’t usually tweet this stuff but had to say Lynda B was an extraordinary woman, a force of nature, and the best teller of dirty jokes. x
Rest in peace, Lynda Bellingham.
Doctor Who-The Reign of Terror.
I tried to talk. I want you to remember that. I tried to reach out. I tried to understand you, but I think that you understand us perfectly. I think that you just don’t care. And I don’t know whether you are here to invade, infiltrate, or just replace them. All that really matters now is that you are monsters!
Awesome action sequence of the episode!
It seems the TARDIS still has a bit of fight left in her!
How I see this scene.
