Who's that girl?
A few posts back we had a lovely shot of Deborah Watling, who played Victoria, having a cup of tea during the filming of the Abominable Snowman. Now whilst I can't promise that it was nice cup of tea, it was definately a nice photo, so time for some more.
Deborah Watling portrayed Victoria Waterfield from the beginning of The Evil of the Daleks (1967) through the end of Fury From the Deep (1968), and until the Tomb of the Cybermen was rediscovered, there was not one full story of hers surviving, such was the extent of the BBC's 'you will be deleted' policy.
Time also to credit an excellent Who photo archive, ShillPages, here.
This last picture is robbed from the Evil of the Daleks photogallery on the Beebs classic series website, here.
Before she landed her Who role, she starred in Alice, Dennis Potter's version of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, for the BBC's The Wednesday Play in 1965, which earned her a Radio Times cover.
Deborah's official website is here.
