Random Ramblings of a Dilusional Depressive with Megalomanic Mania (and a soft spot for cute chicks in short skirts).

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.
More to the point, what's it all about? Me? Well no, not really. (OK, just a bit) But Who. Who? Doctor Who. What? No, not Doctor What, although he's here somewhere as well (or will be). Doctor Who, the typically British and uniquely odd BBC TV time-travelling series, which started way back in 1963 and is still going strong today. Blending the old and the new, aiming to bring you all the stuff you didn't know and even the stuff you didn't know you needed to know... and more! And me? A mad manic megalomaniac... with a dash of delusional paranoia, the ups and downs of a flip-flop, oh, and a constant headache...
