A Tribute to Romana & Lalla Ward

A Tribute to Romana & Lalla Ward

This Doctor Who page is a tribute to both the second Romanadvoratrelundar, who we all just call ‘Romana’ and to the actress who played her, Lalla Ward. Just look at that punim!


A bit of info about Lalla:

  • She was born on June 28, 1951 in England
  • Her full name is (The Honourable) Lady Sarah Ward
  • She was on Doctor Who during it’s most exciting and memorable years, from 1979 to 1981
  • She has acted for BBC TV and on stage
  • All things considered, she didn’t do that much acting which is probably why she is best known for her role as Romana II
  • She married Tom Baker (the most memorable Doctor) in December of 1980. They got divorced 16 months later.
  • She later ended up marrying Richard Dawkins (One of the most famous biologists on the planet and noted author of ‘The Selfish Gene’
  • She currently devotes her life to her family

    I enjoyed Lallas role as Romana. I’m 46 years old now but as a young man I was fascinated by her beauty, and even now I see interviews on the web of her, she is still gorgeous. But aside from her beauty I felt that her role as Romana, was a more fun and lighter character, which really worked well for the show. I’m interested in anything she’s done outside of Doctor Who. Knowledge of her work is very sketchy here in the States. I do know she’s into fashion. And now I’ll ask the same question I’m sure she gets every day, any chance of a spin off?

    I’d love to see Lalla Ward renew her role in the new Dr Who series (even if only as a guest spot). She could return from Exo Space and find out about the time war and that the Dr is the last time lord in existence (besides her of course). Here’s hoping it happens.

    Hi. Other movies Lalla Ward has appeared in are Vampire Circus, Rosebud and England Made Me. All are available on dvd (check ebay) though likely in Region 2 (PAL) format. She also appeared in The Prince And The Pauper (released in the USA as Crossed Swords), The Duchess Of Duke Street and the 1983 Royal Shakespeare Company production of Hamlet (this is available in Region 1 and VHS). I hope this helps.
