Maybe there's more to your wife than you know.

Re: Peri... why do people like her?

She had some pretty good quotes.

"Circular logic will only make you dizzy, Doctor!" (Also in my sig.)

(To the Doctor) "Maybe you should see a doctor?"

"I never saw anyone love himself so much for less reason."

The Master: I AM THE MASTER!
Peri: So what? My name is Perpigilliam Brown and I can shout just as loud as you can!


I did like her better with the Fifth Doctor, though. He brought out the sweeter elements of her nature, while she never really trusted the Sixth Doctor after the whole regeneration fiasco.

EDIT: But, I guess I am a lesbian, so maybe I got the wool pulled over my eyes by her boobs as well.

I just didn't really gel with her character much at all. Plus she' from one of my least favourite periods of Doctor Who.

Re: Peri... why do people like her?

I think part of it is focusing on the right stories-- she's good in Planet of Fire, The Caves of Androzani, and The Trial of a Time Lord. All the stuff in between, though...

Peri is mostly awful, Nicola Bryant is gorgeous and lovely though, and I found her way sexier in more clothes and with her English accent in the Stranger videos than I ever found her in her bikini and American accent.

Come the revolution those who dislike SJS will be rounded up and sent to reeducation camps.

I never was a big fan of Peri's.
Then Mel came along and I wished that Peri was still on the show.

Oh Mel, she is the worst companion ever. So annoying. So glad she didn't last long.

Re: Peri... why do people like her?

I thought she got better with the Sixth as his tenure wore on. I didn't care for her much with the Fifth but I thought she balanced out the brusque nature of the Sixth Doctor.

The sad "American" accent did not do her any favors and I don't think that background ever really mattered (unless one takes a very cynical view of her negative qualities).

I loved her accent. It was what made her her.

Off topic, and a bit ranty, and I realize it's not your point, but I've always hated that expression with a passion. Not only is it insanely misogynistic and chauvinistic, it purports that marital infidelity is acceptable because it's fun. As someone who saw his mother absolutely destroyed by his father's affairs, NO, it is not acceptable.

The above is not directed at you personally. But everyone, please just think about it.

Re: Peri... why do people like her?

Well, of course I wanted to simply post "I'll give you 2 good reasons.." but the truth is, many American Who fans were pretty thrilled about an "American" regular on the show for the first time. A lot of my friends thought her character was an acknowledgment by the BBC of the show's popularity in the US. Of course, now that the show has actually filmed a bunch here, I feel much more acknowledged.
