Richard Dawkins and Lalla Ward (best known for playing Romana in Doctor Who) have announced their separation after 24 years of marriage.
They said in a statement:
Our marriage, like everyone’s, is a private matter and we are not prepared to share any details. Suffice to say it is true that we recently separated entirely amicably.
Obviously, this remains a difficult time, one which we simply will not discuss any further publicly. We would, however, like to stress that we shall always be friends and that we will, of course, continue to work together.
While the split, as with any famous couple, may be newsworthy, I respect their wishes to keep any further discussion about it (including speculation about their motives) a private matter. I wish them both well.
