Dr. Who is to have a new girl assistant—Romana who will be played by Mary Tamm.

The latest member of the long-running B.B.C. television series' cast was introduced at a champagne celebration in London. Mary succeeds Louise Jameson, who plays Leela, the savage.

Mary starred opposite Jon Voight in the film "The Odessa File" and has been seen regularly on TV.

She played Hilda Ogden's daughter on ITV's 'Coronation Street" and has been seen on BBC in "Girls of Slender Means" and "Warship".

Mary will be seen next autumn in a new series with Tom Baker who plays Dr Who. She will be his 13th 'assistant' in the 14 years the series has been running.

Romana is an indestructible under-graduate "time lady" who although 120 years-old is a mere slip of a girl, when she helps he doctor in his quest for the "key to time'—one of his next adventures. Producer Graham Williams compared her role to being like a girl from finishing school working with Kojak!
