For this week’s Extra! we had the opportunity to talk to the delightful Sophie Aldred, and we couldn’t make you wait for that–especially because her Kickstarter for Strangeness in Space still has a few days to go. Do check it out if you’re a fan of sci-fi, comedy, and/or audio goodness! She chats to Deb about that fantastic project, her time as Ace (both on screen and in Big Finish), and what it’s like attending conventions and interacting with fans. It’s a wonderful conversation, and we hope you enjoy it as much as we have!
This week we focus on one companion–the winner of our Verity! companions poll! Join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Lynne, as we talk about Ace! Our personal feelings about Ace as a companion are mixed, but we all agree (mostly) on her importance as a companion. It’s pretty easy to draw a line between Ace and Rose, and we do just that! We also chat a lot about Ace: as compared to other women on screen at the time, as a character to identify with (or not), and as a tuxedo-wearer.
What are your feelings about Ace? Do you love her attitude? Or does she put you off as a viewer? Or something in between? Let us know in the comments!

It’s new to Deb, it might as well be new to Erika, and it’s clear Liz and Lynne have seen it a few times. Just a few…
