CRIMINAL INTENTIONS IN DOCTOR WHO MAGAZINE 394!
Actress Sarah Lancashire speaks exclusively about playing the villain in Partners in Crime, the mysterious Miss Foster, in the latest issue of Doctor Who Magazine…
“Miss Foster is, essentially, a nanny, a guardian, to some rather unusual children,” explains Sarah. “I see her as a slightly warped Mary Poppins. Sheâ€™s quite austere. Sheâ€™s a strong woman. When I first read the script, I thought, oh, well, of course sheâ€™s a baddieâ€¦ but the more I read it, I thought, no, sheâ€™s doing what sheâ€™s doing for legitimate reasons.” Seriously? “Yes! You canâ€™t blame her at all. Hers is perfectly reasonable behaviour…”
