How Caroline John Helped Save Doctor Who

July 5th, 2012 (06:25 am)

Glassman sent me a link to this article by Susana Polo at The Mary Sue on the death of Caroline John, the actor who played Elizabeth Shaw, companion to the Third Doctor. But this article is more than that. Having only seen one Liz Shaw adventure so far, I didn’t realize just what a big role she played in carrying the series through a particularly trying time. Polo references this piece at io9 by Charlie Jane Andrews which itself is well worth a read.
