enjoying Evelyn immensely
I thought you'd like her. As I've said before, she was, in many ways, the genesis of Donna. She is an older woman - compared with the girls who usually travel with the Doctor - with life experience. She's not interested in anything romantic. She's there as a friend, and as someone who is every bit as wise as the Doctor. She has her own opinions on how things should be, and is never afraid to speak up when she thinks something is amiss.
She was cool before it was cool to be cool.
