Season 2 Episode 8: Sophie Aldred

The iconic, anarchistic and utterly fierce companion to the seventh Doctor, Ace, is in the house! I talked with the wonderful Sophie Aldred about all things Ace - how she got the role, how much of Ace is actually her, and where the character was going to end up before the show's cancellation.

And yes, there is extensive jacket talk!

In fact, this episode is very Ace heavy! It's a jam-packed look at one of Doctor Who's most enduring companions, and we hope you enjoy it.
