#Quote
1[on the difference between directing Jon Pertwee and Tom Baker] I found Jon [Jon Pertwee] much easier to work with. I found the first one with Tom Baker was alright but the second one was very, very difficult.
#Fact
1Of the four Doctor Who (1963) serials she directed, her favorite was "Pyramids of Mars" because she felt it had the best script.
