BBC's "Doctor Who" Website has put up a collection of 12 pictures from Caroline John's time as Liz Shaw on "Doctor Who". They encompass her episodes "Spearhead From Space", "The Silurians", "The Ambassadors of Death" and "Inferno".

I hope you enjoy them:



NOTE: One of the pictures has Nicholas Courtney without his trademark mustache of the Brigadier so be on the lookout for that.
