Today, is Carole Ann Ford's 73rd birthday
A big happy 73rd birthday also to Carole Ann Ford (born 16 June 1940). Carole was the original companion, the First Doctor's grand-daughter, who fled with him from Gallifrey, went to school here on Earth, and talked the Doctor into eventually accepting her two teachers Ian and Barbara as further travelling companions. Carole left after a year, returning to the role for The Five Doctors and Dimensions in Time.
