Six Smart Women Discussing Doctor Who

VerityExtraCaroleAnnFordWe bring our year of companions to a close by returning to the very first one, Susan. (Though apparently that distinction is up for debate, as is anything and everything in Doctor Who!) Join Deb, Erika, and Liz as we talk about Susan’s tenure on the show and her place in the pantheon of companions. Does she reverberate throughout the history of the show? Or is she an outlier? It’s a fun discussion!

Then Deb interviews Carole Ann Ford herself at LI Who. Listen in as they chat about Susan from the perspective of the woman who brought her to life!

What do you think of Susan? And how do you think she fits into the history of the show? Let us know in the comments!

  1. Nice discussion and a great interview. Happy Holidays!

  2. I don’t think you could do a whole season, but Mr. Capaldi got it right at the Con, when asked who he would to see, and he replied in character, that he thinks the Doctor would like to see his granddaughter again. I think that we need an episode where he encounters an iterration of Susan.
