HEROES OF DOCTOR WHO ZOE HERRIOT WENDY PADBURY

JOINING THE 2ND DOCTOR AND JAMIE FRESH FROM THEIR BATTLE WITH THE CYBERMEN ON THE WHEEL IN SPACE, ZOE’S STERILE UPBRINGING MADE HER BLIND TO THE OUTSIDE UNIVERSE BUT IT WASN’T LONG BEFORE SHE BEGAN TO SEE THINGS THROUGH HER NEW FRIEND’S EYES. FROM 60S LONDON TO FAR FUTURE SPACE PIRATES, ZOE HAD AN INTELLECT THAT SOMETIMES ECLIPSED THE DOCTOR HIMSELF WHEN IN THE KROTONS SHE CORRECTS HIS MISTAKE IN ONE OF THE KROTON’S TESTS AND SAVES HIM FROM DISINTEGRATION. IN THE MIND ROBBER SHE GIVES THEM A HERO FROM THE FUTURE TO HELP IN THEIR FIGHT AGAINST THE MASTER OF FICTION BUT HER TRAVELS ARE CUT SHORT WHEN THE DOCTOR IS FORCED TO CALL THE TIME LORDS TO DEFEAT THE WAR LORDS. CONDEMNED TO EXILE, THE DOCTOR IS HELPLESS TO STOP ZOE AND JAMIE’S MINDS BEING WIPED AND RETURNED TO THEIR OWN TIMES. ZOE RETURNED AS A GHOST IN THE FIVE DOCTORS IN THE TOWER OF RASSILON BUT HAS FEATURED IN NOVELS AND THE BIG FINISH RANGE, MOST RECENTLY TEAMING UP WITH THE 6TH DOCTOR AND AN OLDER JAMIE.

SHORT HER TIME MAY HAVE BEEN, BUT ZOE WAS SLAP BANG IN THE MIDDLE OF DOCTOR WHO HISTORY.
