Six Smart Women Discussing Doctor Who

This week we launch the final mini-arc in our Year of Women: Kicky-Stabby women! Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Lynne as we launch things in style — Sevateem style! That’s right, Leela is our first kicky-stabby heroine (in her first story, “The Face of Evil”), and we’re thrilled to have a chance to talk about her, as it’s something we haven’t done much at all on Verity!

What do you think of Leela? Of this story? Of this idea for a mini-arc? Let us know in the comments!

Extra-special thanks to our guest editor, Steven Schapansky of Castria!

    Chris Boucher is one of my fsvourite BBC sf script writers snd script editors. He did such s wonderful job eith ‘Face of Evil’, ‘Robots of Death’ snd of course ‘Blakes 7’.

    ‘The Face of Evil’ has many story points and ideas he used in ‘Blakes 7’, including the computers with quirky personalitiee and post-apocslyptic science as faith or cultural memory.

    Leela is one of the most fully devrloped companions ever duo his writing and Louise Jamison’s excellent acting.
