Maureen O'Brien was the first "new" companion to replace a departing Doctor Who companion back in 1965. Vicki was a replacement to Susan, the Doctor's grandaughter, and she instantly lit up the screen with her enthusiasm and chemistry with the regular cast.
Maureen returned to the role of Vicki on audio with Big Finish in 2007.
In this interview Maureen reveals how she came to be acting in the theatre and then transitioned to television with Doctor Who, her relationship with William Hartnell and the rest of the cast, her writing and how she came to be working with Big Finish.
Thanks for chatting with us Maureen!
