So, what’s Peri up to these days? Or, more to the point, where can you see actress Nicola Bryant on the TV at the moment? If you don’t know who I’m talking about, Nicola is the lady pictured on the left, with her most famous creation directly above (obviously, unless Miss Bryant has taken to pointing guns at people!). She’s the girl in my avatar. I was going to say bed but that’s wishful thinking and you wouldn’t have believed me if I had! If you scroll down the page or click on the relevant label, she can also be seen receiving bat’s milk from Peter Davison in my earlier post “All Change”! Yup, same lady and one of my all-time favourite “Doctor Who” companions. Doubters will tell you she whined all the time, especially when teamed up with Colin Baker. Sceptics will tell you I adored Nicola as Peri, in the mid-Eighties, simply because she had big tits and wore a bikini all the time. She didn’t wear a bikini all the time, unfortunately! I only wish she had, so I can’t argue with the sceptics! Occasionally, she could be found in shorts but in one of her best stories, “Revelation of the Daleks”, Peri is completely covered at all times… sounds positively feudal! Today, she can be seen in the “Bold 2in1 Teenager’s Bedroom” commercial. It’s good to see she’s in work but the less said about that the better. And, what of the future? Well, if you’re going to bring back so many bloody companions, Rusty, at least include one that I like… Nicola can sniff my towels anytime!!
