at our London Megastore

In the 1970s, actress Mary Tamm travelled the universe aboard the TARDIS… 30 years on, she now recounts the story of her own, earthbound, adventures.

Born to Estonian parents in 1950s Bradford, her rise to fame took her from a Northern childhood to life in the fast lane: via TV appearances in Coronation Street and Girls of Slender Means to leading roles in feature films – including the cult Tales that Witness Madness, and The Odessa File which pitched her career into the international arena.

In 1978, Mary became part of essential Saturday night television as she joined the cast of Doctor Who alongside Tom Baker, as the superlative Time Lady, Romana! Packed with recollections and exclusive photographs, her autobiography FIRST GENERATION features a foreword by Colin Baker ad follows Mary on a journey of self-discovery to her parents’ homeland of Estonia, where she finally comes to terms with her true identity.
