FROM THE DEEP
From The Deep was my last story, and in
many ways, my favourite.
thought it was a great story, and of course
Victoria came into her own by defeating
the Sea-Weed Monster. Two distinct memories
from this story for totally different
reasons. The first was yet another of
Pat and Frazer's practical jokes. We were
filming on location at Margate Beach,
the Doctor and Jamie find lots of foam
washed up and start to investigate. I
said to the director' "Look, I'll
just stand here on the edge of the shot,
I don;t want to get all messed up".
was fine until Pat and Frazer gave each
other a look, then looked at me. The next
thing I knew I was then getting Birthday
Bumps in the foam! The director thought
it was great, but because somebody laughed,
he said, "wipe her down, let's do
it again!" Typical Pat and Frazer.
second memory is of my final scene. Sadly
this story no longer exists, but if it
did then you would see a very tearful
farewell scene between Victoria, the Doctor
and Jamie. That was very hard to do for
all of us, and the tears were very much
knew it was time to go, but I also knew
I was going to miss the Doctor Who family;
Pat and Frazer in particular.
course, at the time I had no idea how
much a part of my life Doctor Who would
be and over 35 years later I'm very proud
to have been part of a very special programme.
