Mary Tamm's classic name from her tenure on Doctor Who as the Doctor's time-travelling companion, called Romana for short.

Tamm appears in this episode of Crime Traveller as Holly Turner's snippety aunt ("Holly, what a lovely surprise, or at best, a surprise.") Holly wasn't close to Aunt Mary as it had been over a year since she last saw her.

Aunt Mary is murdered, poisoned, in a restaurant, so Jeff and Holly time travel to solve her murder.

Holly then makes the incredible mistake and visits her aunt on that same fateful morning, thereby making herself a liar when she had said she hadn't seen Aunt Mary, who was leaving a sizable inheritance to Holly, for about a year. Very suspicious.

Holly now finds herself in jail and the clock is ticking.

Jeff meanwhile is questioning the three suspects, all of whom were at the table with Aunt Mary during the murder.

An astonishing situation with a lift (called an elevator in the states) and persons trapped inside gives an intriguing perspective on time travel, as do many situations in this series.

Another topic for discussion; Holly left her red jacket in the prison cell, as well as her other personal effects at the prison desk. Would those items have vanished, or would Holly who emerged from the time room now be able to retrieve them from their locations?
