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.
