Zienia Merton, who appeared as Ping-Cho in the William Hartnell story 'Marco Polo'...


...and later with David Tennant as the Registrar in the Sarah Jane Adventures story 'The Wedding of Sarah Jane Smith'...


...has died. She was 72-years-old

I only saw her last week in an episode of Jason King called, oddly enough, Zenia. Guess who Miss Merton played?
