I wish I could post pictures on here but have yet to master the technology (despite my friends' attempts to get me to learn) but anyway-


Who was sad and brokenhearted when you saw The Green Death the first time and realised it was Jo Grant's last story in Dr. Who?

Re: Katy Manning

It didn't really bother me the first time I sawe it, since it was the very first Who episode I'd ever seen.

It didn't affect my enjoyment of the episode in later years, as her deciding to leave was just such an out-of-the-blue thing. But that really was a sad ending. Pertwee did a brilliant job.

I think he did a brilliant job with that ending. Definitely classic.

Re: Katy Manning

Very sad to see her to go.

Of course, like most people who watched on PBS in America, I saw Tom Baker and Sarahjane first, and then Pertwee came later.

So, it was very sad, after getting to know Jo Grant to see her leaving, but, it was bitersweet, as she was getting married, and the following episodes happened to be brand new (to me) Sarahjane episodes, so that was a cool balance.

Re: Katy Manning

I also saw Baker with Sarah Jane first but eventually grew to love Pertwee and Jo Grant. I think she made his exile more bearable during the UNIT years, and he was quite sad to see her go. She was probably like a daughter to him and once she left to marry, he seemed to lose much of his interest in working for UNIT and staying around on Earth once his exile had been lifted.

Re: Katy Manning

I know there are a few people here who dislike her, and yeah she could be pretty damn stupid sometimes. but she was just so bloody cute. It'd be like hating a puppy.

Re: Katy Manning

No one in their right mind would hate a puppy. I think Jo proved herself in stories like The Daemons where she is willing to sacrifice herself for the Doctor, and Frontier in Space, where she ably resists the Master's hypnotism.

Puppy, yea, seeing her in The Sarah Jane Adventures I got a very "Cute Puppy Dog" vibe from her appearance

[Off-topic rant] Speaking of Sarahjane, the Show is called The Sarah Jane Adventures, yet she was consistently telling Rani's Mom (Gita?) that her name was Sarahjane, not Sarah, to me that implies her name is not Sarah Jane, but, rather it is Sarahjane? Inquiring Minds want to know [/rant]

It's Sarah-Jane like someone being called Jim-Bob or Anna-Beth.

Re: Katy Manning

I love that there's only one person who's allowed to call her Sarah.

Re: Katy Manning

So for those who were sad to see Jo go in The Green Death, who was psyched to see her return, without warning, in The Sarah Jane Adventures? I was! It was everything I had hoped for, and was a nice reunion tale for her and the Doctor.

I was warned

Personally I've never had anything against Jo, and she was darned cute back in the day, but there are plenty of companions I'd have wanted to see return before her. Pity we never got the suggesed Ace return

Well to be fair, it made sence to get two companions the same age and from roughly the same era with similar memories. So at least they didn't have to spend half the episode warming up to one another (like Sarah and Rose).

Re: Katy Manning

Sophie's said she would've come back in SJA if asked, but sadly... still, she could come back in the parent show...

Well apparently RTD was considering it before events beyond anyone's control took over

Good point by the way Cutter...
