Deborah Watling passes away at the age of 69

It is Cult Faction’s sad duty to report that former Doctor Who companion Deborah Watling has died at the age of 69 years old.

Watling played Victoria Waterfield in 40 episodes between 1967 and 1968 alongside the second Doctor Patrick Troughton. Her father, actor Jack Watling, appeared alongside her in two Doctor Who adventures.

Her brother Giles Watling, Conservative MP for Clacton, said she would be “sorely missed” and “was a lovely, lovely girl, bubbly and vibrant.”
