Lynda Bellingham, RIP.

Sad to hear of the death of Lynda Bellingham. Amongst other things, she was mum in the Oxo ads, Faith Greyshott in Second Thoughts and Faith in the Future, and of course The Inquisitor in the Doctor Who serial The Trial of a Time Lord. She always came across as really lovely and genuine. I know she'd hoped it to make it beyond Christmas. Really sad that she didn't manage that. At least she died in her husband's arms.

I don't think it's an exaggeration to say she was a national treasure. A sad loss.

And the second Helen Herriott on All Creatures, and had a pivotal role in At Home With the Braithwaites...and and and. Am totally gutted. Esp since she was hoping to make it through one last holiday season with her family before leaving them, and she didn't even get that. :(
