TOOS company for DR. WHO when he starts a new adventure (BBC-1, 6.20).

For Toos (played by Pamela Salem) is the pilot of a craft she describes as a spaceship mining machine.

The Doctor (Tom Baker) and his new "Girl Friday" Leela (Louise Jameson) land inside the machine which is run by just a few humans with a lot of robots.


Pamela found the whole thing a great adventure. "There are wonderful gadgets everywhere and the robots look magnificent. They even go bananas.

"I wear a couple of lovely space outfits—and some really futuristic make up," she says.

Pamela will be disappointed if she doesn't see at least the last episode. She will miss the first three because she has to appear as Myra in the Noel Coward play, "Hay Fever," in Watford.
