Extra! – Timelady Lalla

Before we start our next Year of Women mini-arc, we thought we’d cap off our Competent Women arc by sharing an interview with Lalla Ward. She played one of the most competent women in the history of Doctor Who, Romana! Join Deb and Erika as they briefly chat about the interview, which took place at LI Who in November, 2017, and then please enjoy the interview!

Ep 155 – Dark Waters of Mars

The first mini-arc of our Year of Women focuses on competent women, and Adelaide Brooke totally fits the bill!
