How old was Mel meant to be when she began traveling with the Doctor?

Well, she holds a BSc and was working when the Doctor met her, so I’d guess early 20s, but if it was ever made more specific than that, I don’t recall. What age do students in the…

I’m a moron.

a) I should know this anyway because I work for Oxford blasted University; and b) TARDIS wiki tells me she was 25 when she first met the Doctor.

Exactly. She’s actually, you know, an interesting person, and I just find the whole thing so frustrating.

Everyone needs to see this and appreciate the beauty and brilliance of the Radiophonic Workshop.

I have to say, I find it particularly hard to tolerate complaints about “fangirls” who have a crush on the Doctor when such complaints come from (ostensibly) adult males who are apparently unable to restrain themselves from making lewd and juvenile comments about Nicola Bryant’s breasts every single time they see a photograph of Peri.

That’s called hypocrisy, gentlemen, and it makes you look like a prizewinning imbecile.

The number of male fans I otherwise like and respect who can’t seem to stop themselves from making some sort of commentary about Peri’s boobs.  Like, seriously.  We get it.  She’s hot.  Everybody knows this.  Salivating like a fucking animal at the mention of Peri Brown and then looking askance at me when I mention that Pat Troughton was a rather dapper fellow just makes you, well, a fucking idiot.

How about we, for once, make mention of something like how Peri was a complex character with human strengths and failings and lots more interesting things going for her than her wardrobe and figure.  And someone who we met when she was on holiday in Lanzarote, so it kind of stands to reason that she was in a swimsuit?  Ferchrissakes.

I’m pretty sure that my favourite super hero has become Captain America, but I can’t really tell anyone this here because I’m already so easily mistaken for American here, what with the whole all-non-British-Anglophones-sounding-the-same and all.  But his little face is all precious and I JUST WANT TO HUG HIM and I don’t normally even like super hero things all that much anyway but d’awwwwwww
