    No offense to Lalla Ward sort of, she got on my nerves and she made some insulting comments in a recent interview and my view of her dimmed more!

    Care to elaborate? I hadn't heard anything... what did she say?


    One solid hope is worth a cartload of uncertainties.

    There are so many examples. She always comes across as too big for her britches, I think. Just have a listen at her "Leisure Hive" commentary. Of course, this makes her Big Finish casting as the Gallifreyan president note perfect.

    I was so madly in love with Lalla Ward. The chemistry was too wonderful to not prefer her for me. I am fond of Mary Tamm, too. It's a bit like the attitude I share with Louis about loving all the Doctors the most- it's just the show, it's great.
    I had a bizarro dream as a boy that Lalla Ward moved in next door and she had a daughter who looked just like her... sorry weird kid I was. Not as weird as the Pippi Longstocking one, mind... Ahhh, red-headed girls

    What were we talking about?

    For me it was Mary tamm all the way. She had class and beauty far in excess of Lala. Which isn't to say I never liked Lala, I pretty much liked most companions, except for Dodo, and Mel...and Adric, but just during the Peter Davison years. And I didn't really like Jo Grant either. I think I'm going to stop writing now.

    I've seen Lalla in Horns of Nimon and lemme say she looked stunning in that outfit.
