THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY - VOLUME TWO
Bradford-born Mary Tamm was already a
successful actress on stage, TV and the big screen when, in 1978, she
joined the cast of Doctor Who as the Time Lady, Romana, in the
company of Tom Baker’s incarnation of the Doctor.
In 2009, her book First Generation recounted
the story of her life before Who and her journey of self-discovery to
her parents’ homeland of Estonia. Tantalisingly for Who fans, the book
came to an end half way through Mary’s year on board the TARDIS. This
new volume (written before her tragic death from cancer in 2012) picks
up where First Generation ends, with the inside story of the filming of
her final three Doctor Who adventures; and continues with tales of her
subsequent TV work, her return to the stage, her ventures into the world
of Who fandom, and the personal joy and fulfilment brought to her by the
birth of her own ‘second generation’ – her daughter, Lauren.
Packed with incidents and anecdotes recounted with Mary’s trademark
Northern wit, Second Generation is rounded out with tributes and
reflections from some of her closest friends and colleagues, including
Miriam Margolyes, Carol Royle and Steven Berkoff.
PRAISE FOR 'FIRST GENERATION'
"An excellent read in its own right, this
book deserves to find an audience beyond the Doctor Who faithful.
definitely something about Mary…"
