    From the first episode I saw with them (I think Tomb of the Cybermen) I always loved the Doctor, Jamie and Victoria together. Rest in peace.

    Rest in Peace Deborah, sadly as time marches on we’ll have fewer of our lovely Doctor Who family left. As Tom once said I believe; “If you think about it. The living are entertained by the dead.”

    Sadly so true. My thoughts are with her family and friends – especially Frazier Hines as they were the best of friends.
