Re: Classic Who on BBC America
Nyssa was originally going to be written out towards the end of season 19 (ie, around Earthshock time) as well, as she was the companion script editor/Earthshock writer Eric Saward was least interested in, but Peter Davison thought she was the one who worked best with his Doctor
Nyssa was my favorite companion after Sarah-Jane. Nice to know that Peter went to bat for the character, keeping Sarah Sutton on the show.
Tegan was cute, but I always found her to be a bit annoying.
