Dr Who SF Babe Nominations

I only watched Dr Who for a couple of seasons on the local PBS affiliate back in the mid-1980s. Tom Baker is the only doctor I ever saw, and I remember well the episode where he picked up Leela (Louise Jameson) as his sidekick. After doing some research, I'm not sure how best to screen out the contestants for the Dr Who babe poll, so I will leave it to you, dear readers, to help me with nominations.

Here are the rules:

1. This will be a four-way poll.

2. Please submit your top four picks to be included in the poll via comments or email. They must be female (sorry, ladies and differently-inclined gentlemen). If you can remember a particular companion, wonderful. Otherwise, have a browse through this page. I will take the top two vote-getters that are neither Leela nor Rose Tyler (see rule number 3).

3. I will be including Leela and the Doctor's new companion, Rose Tyler (played by Billie Piper), in the final poll notwithstanding stronger showings by other reader-nominated candidates. Sorry, but it's my poll and this is not a true democracy!

4. Nominations will close 12:00 noon Central Standard Time (GMT -6) on Monday, January 24, 2005.

We'll be extending the Spock's Girlfriends poll for another week to allow plenty of time for nominations.

I'm looking forward to reading your suggestions. Thanks!

Romana II - It's a lousy picture of her on the link, but I remember her as quite the babe.

Midwest Mom's Wholesome Picks(TM): Victoria Waterfield and Zoe Herriot from the "Moe Howard" Doctor era; Romana I (yes, I); and Peri Brown. Thanks for caving in to reader pressure. Cheers!

I can't list 3 others, sorry. The other ones all seem a little too plain/ugly to be called babes.

I nominate Peri, Victoria, Zoe, and Polly as the next four sexiest babes after the already-included new companion Rose (Billie Piper) - needless to say, looking very much forward to the new series of Doctor Who

So glad I got back from vacation in time...

One choice is all I need: Peri (Nicola Bryant)

All y'all crazy. The finest of the Doc's babes is Sarah Jane Smith. She's so hot!

As for your other Sci-Fi babes, where are the gorgeous women of the British classic Blake's 7? Especially the luscious Josette Simon?

Don't take my word for it! Check her out!
