Re: Peri... why do people like her?
Peri started out in Planet Of Fire being pretty smart and brave even standing up to the Master, but she quickly turned into a screamer. Still the relationship between Peri and the Doctor mellowed in The Trial Of A Time Lord season and that made things alittle bit better. And yes Nicola Bryant is great looking woman who oddly enough doesn't seem to age, she must have some picture of her inthe back of her closet of a grey haired old woman kind of like Dorian Grey.
