Companion reign – 1966 – 68
“Where is my father?……..Is he……..dead?” Victoria – Evil Of The Daleks
Victorian girl in space.
Victoria Waterford (played by the late Deborah Watling) was an Earth girl from the strict regimes of 19th Century England.
She was the daughter of scientist Edward Waterford who came to the Dalek’s attention with his crude Victorian time travel experiments in The Evil Of The Daleks – 1967.
The Daleks, looking to steal and capitalise on Dr Waterford’s research, kidnapped Victoria. Dr Waterford was eventually mortally wounded by the Dalek’s and prior to dying, asked the Second Doctor and Jamie to take Victoria with them – and look after her.
Being a Victorian girl, Victoria didn’t settle too well into the nomadic time travelling lifestyle, although she did grow close to fellow-companion Jamie.
She sometimes found the horrors she encountered too much but she had a keen mind and looked to educate ‘savage’ Jamie with knowledge and social ettiquette, when he showed his ignorance.
In something of a baptism of fire, after the Dalek’s; came the Doctor’s other mortal nemesis – The Cybermen in Tomb Of The Cybermen – 1967.
Victoria left at the end of Fury Of The Deep -1968 deciding to opt instead for the relative quiet life of 20th Century England.
