GUESS WHO pretty Elizabeth Sladen has got the star job of performing with on TV ?

Who, indeed. It's Jon Pertwee—alias television's Dr. Who.

And the excitement of winning the role was so much for 25-year-old Elizabeth yesterday that she was swept off her feet—by Dr. Who, of course.

Auburn-haired Elizabeth from Liverpool was picked to become the doctor's new girl assistant from more than 100 actresses. She will take over from linty. Manning who has quit after three years.

Role

She will play a girl journalist who comes to interview Dr. Who, gets caught in the Tardis time machine and is whisked off into space.

The series which starts later this year will be her first major TV role, although two years ago she appeared in six episodes of Coronation Street as a barmaid.

Said Elizabeth : "I got through an hour-long audition so I reckon I can stand up to the Daleks or any other monsters we meet."
