[edit]

SHE'S best know as one of Dr Who's assistants. That job took her into space with the longest running Doctor of them all.. Tom Baker.

This week. Lalla Ward comes down to earth in a very different sort of play — but one that tests all her resources for spinning an unusual line.

Schoolgirl Chums (Nine. Friday 4pm) is a jolly hockey sticks tale about life in a rather posh girls' boarding school.

There is sinister business ahead for Alison Dayne (Charlotte Young), the new girl at St Ursula's. whose lather is a colonel on a hush-hush mission and a man with an obvious crush on the headmistress. Miss Devine (Lalla Ward).

Uper crust

Students of the upper crust may care to know that Charlotte Long is the daughter of Viscout Long of Wraxell and this is her first leading role as an actress.

She displays a certain class, but the scene stealer is her chum at St Ursula's. Hilary, marvellously played by Patsy Kensit

The pretty Miss Kensit has been given some of the most ripping lines in television.

"I can't say I'm raptuous about him being king." she says of Alison's Dane's new friend — destined to become the monarch of an obscure Balkans state. probably get horribly spoilt."
