A few posts back we looked at a collection of pics from City of Death, so time to do a little look at Romana II, played by Lalla Ward. The 'school uniform' costume she wore in City was apparently her own idea, and she obviously likes hats, so here's a few more...
Lalla Ward originally portrayed Princess Astra in The Armageddon Factor (1979). Romana 'chose' her likeness for her second incarnation, travelling with the Doctor from Destiny of the Daleks (1979) through to Warriors' Gate (1981).
There's a Lalla gallery on the Beeb's classic series website, here, and on the the Who Image Archive, here. Top picture is from The Leisure Hive.
For more information on Lalla, see the Who wiki, here.
