Deborah Watling – 1948-2017

Hello everyone!

Welcome to ‘Bradley’s Basement’ blog and I’m Tim Bradley!

(sigh) Dear Debbie Watling. I shall miss you lots! 😦

I was saddened and shocked to hear that the lovely Deborah Watling had passed away. Debbie played Victoria Waterfield, companion of Patrick Troughton (The Second Doctor) in ‘Doctor Who’. She played Victoria in the TV series and also in the Big Finish audios of ‘Doctor Who’, which I’ve enjoyed. Continue reading

Quick DVD review – ‘Downtime’

Hello everyone! 🙂

This is one present I had for Christmas!

I enjoyed watching ‘Downtime’ on DVD. It’s an exciting drama starring Elisabeth Sladen as Sarah Jane Smith; Nicholas Courtney as the Brigadier and Deborah Watling as Victoria Waterfield. I’m not sure I fully understand the plot, but it was exciting as I wanted to see this and I’m glad that this is on DVD. Continue reading
