Meet the Lady Christina de Souza in DWM 407!
In an exclusive interview with DWM, Michelle Ryan talks about playing the remarkable Lady Christina de Souza – the Doctor’s new companion in the forthcoming Easter Special, the 200th Doctor Who television adventure, Planet of the Dead…
DWM asks whether there’s sexual tension between the Doctor and Christina. “Yeah,” Michelle grins, “and I think it’s a real meeting of minds. He’s bowled over by how sassy and witty she is, and how she’s completely not in awe of him. It’s only as time goes on that she’s thinking, ‘There’s something special about you. You’re different to guys that I’ve met before…’”
