  1. I adore Kat’s idea of Halley as Binro!

    Love all of your ideas, and especially Kat’s about Julia Child. In my mind I could see her as a companion and be a combination between Donna and Evelyn Smythe from Big Finish. So many possibilities!!

    I’d like an episode with Liliʻuokalani, the last queen (and only queen regnant) of Hawaii. A sad but fascinating story, and a wonderfully strong and determined (but peaceful) character. But I only want it if written by a Hawaiian native and filmed on location there. 🙂

    Julia Child with the Doctor—that’d be awesome.

    Bringing together one of my other lives with Doctor Who, I’d propose an episode with the Doctor hanging with Lorraine Gordon when she and her husband was running The Village Vanguard in New York City and jazz was evolving out of bebop and starting to figure out how to keep growing as something other than the mainstream pop music it used to be. Stop by when Thelonius Monk or John Coltrane or Miles Davis was playing. Maybe follow Mary Lou Williams who was a mentor to Monk and Miles…

    I’d like to suggest Julia Child’s travelling with the Third Doctor, given his rather notable gourmet tastes, albeit filtered through 70’s sensibilities, so he was heavily into cheese and wine. I love the idea of her correcting his assumptions about food.

    I was going to suggest an alternate might be British food critic and TV/celebrity chef Fanny Cradock, whose early laudable dedication to cost effective, but lavish looking (if not always tasteful) became almost a parody of itself, but that might seem a little cruel (She had one HECK of a life if you ever want to look up the details).
