Katy chats about working with Third Doctor actor Jon Pertwee, Time Lord fashion, posing with a Dalek, and much, much more in a fascinating and funny interview.

She says of Doctor Who:

“Going back to my childhood, I remember sitting nose-to-screen, seeing Doctor Who for the first time, with William Hartnell, and it blew me away.

I’m addicted to this day.

The number of people that have been affected by it, one way or another. The number of people we’ve given warmth and love to, in their sitting room, when they’ve had troubled times; they’ve been going through some trauma in their life, and Doctor Who has brought them hope.

What a gift of a show!”

You can read the full interview in the latest issue of Doctor Who Magazine.
