Title: Mel, she really was annoying wasn't she
Post by: Sandiwich11 on October 17, 2010, 01:47:28 am
I'm watching Time and the Rani, haven't watched much McCoy for years and I'm starting to remember why.  Mel is just awful, and she's barely been in it so far :P

I can't even fully explain what my problem is with her, but her screaming is somewhere near the top of a list that makes me cringe.  As is the way she looks like a principle boy in a pantomine rather than a companion :P

Aw Mel. She had such a crappy shot at it. I remember reading an interview with JNT years ago where he said Mel was his biggest regret. Not because he didnt like her, but because he created her all wrong and made her unlikeable. Her acting was often questionable though regardless of what she was working with

This is a hate thread yea? Because she does my fu*king head right in! Her whining and bad acting make her scenes practically unwatchable

Yep, most def a hate thread :D  I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels like this about her, was a little wasted last night when I started this thread and had to vent XD

Her acting was sometimes a little off, but I do think with a better characterisation she would be more fondly remembered

Mel's Bells, Sandi!
Sorry, only just stopped laughing.
At least it wasn't The Happiness Patrol.

Its odd that after nearly 25 years opinion of her is still so low. The Sixth and Seventh Doctor seem to be growing in popularity as the years go by, but more than anything else, Mel is still so despised. As it the Happiness Patrol :P
