Former ‘Doctor Who’ Companion Deborah Watling Has Died

Deborah Watling has sadly passed away after a brief battle with cancer. Watling played Second Doctor companion Victoria Waterfield, appearing in 40 episodes between 1967 and 1968.

Sadly most of her episodes have been lost, with only a few surviving. She first appeared in The Evil of the Daleks in the serial’s second episode (coincidentally the only episode to survive from that story). One of her better serials has survived though, Tomb of the Cybermen, and is very much worth your time.

Deborah Watling was 69 years old.

Trae Dorn

Trae is the tallest of the hosts, and he is certain it’s because he is the oldest. This is (at the very least) why he is the baldest. Trae co-founded Wisconsin’s longest running Anime convention No Brand Con and refuses to apologize for it... which he probably should. Trae also writes the webcomics UnCONventional and The Chronicles of Crosarth, which leads many to ask when the hell he has time to actually do anything anymore. He says he has time because he “does it all quite poorly.”
