Seriously, I'm trying to understand, and I just can't. It seems a good portion of the classic fanbase likes Peri and I have no idea why.
Having seen her now in Vengeance on Varos
, The Two Doctors
,and Mark of the Rani
, as well as having heard her in a couple of Big Finish audios, I cannot stand her. At all
. If she were my companion, I'd probably end up treating her worse than the Doctor does. She's an annoying, simpering, whiny, unobservant, clumsy, incompetent bitch. She's a hundred times worse than Tegan to me, and has absolutely become my most hated companion of the classic series. If I keep watching her episodes, I might end up hating her more
than Rose and Grace put together.
And yet people seem to like her. Is it because of the emotion of Caves of Androzani
? Please, someone, help me understand.
