HEROES OF DOCTOR WHO NYSSA SARAH SUTTON

NYSSA WAS NEVER MEANT TO BE A COMPANION BUT JOHN NATHAN TURNER SAW SOMETHING IN THE PERFORMANCE AND HAD HER ARRIVE IN LOGOPOLIS IN SEARCH OF HER FATHER, TREMAS. A CITIZEN OF THE TRAKEN EMPIRE, NYSSA WAS VERY SHELTERED, IMMUNE TO THE HORRORS OF THE UNIVERSE BUT THE MASTER SOON CHANGED THAT.

HE FIRST TOOK HER FATHER’S BODY THEN WIPED OUT THE ENTIRE PLANET WHEN HE INTERFERED IN THE MATHEMATICIANS OF LOGOPOLIS.

SHE HAD A VERY GENTILE RELATIONSHIP WITH THE DOCTOR ALTHOUGH OVERCROWDING BECAME AN ISSUE WHEN NYSSA WAS WRITTEN OUT OF KINDA, APPEARING TOP AND TAIL OF THE STORY. SHE DISPLAYED SOME PHYSIC ABILITIES AND HER DETERMINATION GREW WHEN SHE FACED DOWN THE TIME LORDS AND HELPED STEER THE TARDIS DURING CASTROVALVA. BUT LIFE WAS TO STOP IN TERMINUS WHEN SHE OPTED TO STAY AND HELP CURE THE LAZER DISEASE.

BUT ONCE AGAIN, THAT WASN’T TH END OF HER STORY AS SHE HAS BEEN A PART OF THE BIG FINISH SERIES, TEAMING UP WITH PETER DAVISON EXPANDING AND DEEPENING THEIR RELATIONSHIP TO WHAT IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN ON TV.

BUT AN EVEN BETTER IDEA CAME FROM THE BRILLIANCE OF THE GUYS AT BIG FINISH WHEN THEY REUNITED THE 5TH DOCTOR, TEGAN, TURLOUGH AND NYSSA FOR A NEW SERIES OF ADVENTURES. BUT THE GREAT TWIST THEY CAME UP WITH WAS NYSSA WAS NOW MUCH OLDER, JOINING HER FRIENDS AT A LATER STAGE IN HER LIFE. IT HAS COMPLETELY DID THE CHARACTER THE WORLD OF GOOD AND GIVEN HER NEW DIMENSIONS. IS IT TIME FOR NYSSA TO RETURN TO THE SHOW SO WE CAN SEE WAHT SHE HAS BECOME? I THINK SO.
