Origin : Earth (19th Century)

Companion reign – 1966 – 68

“Where is my father?……..Is he……..dead?” Victoria – Evil Of The Daleks

Victorian in space.

Victoria Waterford (played by 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 Daleks – 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 Daleks; 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 relatively quiet life of 20th Century England.
