Sarah for the wife...Peri for the mistress.
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.
Point taken. Not that there haven't been boy toys to cougars over the years who have made wives political marriages to stuffy men a bit more bearable, but..six of one...

I just don't get the hate for Peri. She actually came across as a very wholesome and innocent girl.

See the original post of this thread. (I'm not a Peri hater, btw.) And also most people imagining themselves in her place would've likely slugged Six in the jaw after 'The Twin Dilemma', demanded to be immediately returned home to Earth and not given him another chance, let alone stuck around and put up with him for all of Season 22 (as indeed most of the viewing audience didn't).

What an interesting idea. A smug boorish Doctor who realizes he's an ass after his latest companion ditches him. I like that. He might even go back a year or so later and apologize. It would make for a fun dynamic between the two characters.
