A lovely interview. She sounded like a wonderful woman.
I believe the Mark Gatiss ghost project is called The Tractate Middoth which is adapted from a MR James story. The BBC announced it awhile ago so here’s a link about it: http://www.bbc.co.uk/mediacentre/latestnews/2013/bbc-two-quartet-of-arts-programmes.html
Ooh, I squeed too! What a great interview with a fascinating woman. I was really surprised that Louise’s time on Doctor Who was relatively short, because in my mind she was on TV for ages! Clearly Leela was so awesome that I’ve amplified her time on-screen in my mind…
And now I’m really going to have to listen to some Big Finish audios, cos I want more Leela!
Once more, a great podcast. Every week Verity gives me something new to think about. Keep it up!
Oh, she DOES seem lovely! This was a great interview, and so pleasant to listen to it could have gone on for hours and I probably wouldn’t have noticed. I definitely need to check out the Big Finish audios that she’s in, too.
Thanks, ladies!! 🙂
I thoroughly recommend The Wrath of the Iceni in which Leela dumps the Doctor for Boadicea.
Timely. I was just discussing Boadicia recenlly
I enjoy every Verity! podcast but this one was particularly wonderful. Very exciting to hear Louise is recording something with Colin Baker and Lalla Ward next year too. I’d not heard that before, you might have a world exclusive there!
This was wonderful, thank you so much!
