Victoria

Reminder that buffers.

Victoria Waterfield (played by Deborah Watling), also known affectionately as Buffers, was a companion of the Second Doctor from 1967 to 1968.

Background Edit

She's a smart young lady from the Victorian Era (BRAVO... uh... WHITAKER, PROBABLY).

Appearances Edit

Victoria first appears in the 1967 story The Evil of the Daleks and leaves in 1968's Fury from the Deep.

Character Edit

Victoria was 14 years old. (Sure, Deborah Watling was 19 or 20, but the character was 14.) Although she'd had a sheltered childhood, and was then orphaned by the Daleks before being kidnapped by the Doctor, she learned pretty quickly.

Her main specialty was pretending to be a naive, sheltered little girl so she could con the bad guys. That, and screaming loud enough to actually kill the monsters.

The Doctor and Jamie constantly tried to get her to wear shorter dresses, and then teased her about it when she did. And Jamie fell in love with her. Did everyone involved in the show forget they'd established that she was 14 years old? Not that you're reading this, you're still staring at the picture, aren't you?

Deleted Edit

Only two complete stories to feature her exist in the BBC archives (The Tomb of the Cybermen and The Enemy of the World). BRAVO BBC.

Two other Victoria stories The Ice Warriors and The Web of Fear were released with BBC reconstructions completing the missing episodes in the stories. Thank god for the Animated Second Doctor.
