Zoe Heriot was a brilliant young scientist from the 21st Century who accompanied the Second Doctor and Jamie McCrimmon in their travels aboard the Doctor's TARDIS.

Zoe was an astrometricist, first class, and astrophysicist on board Space Station W3, known as The Wheel, when she met the Doctor and Jamie. Zoe had a photographic memory, and was described by her colleagues as 'the librarian'. She was very bad at history, however. Her training left her emotionally underdeveloped, having been taught only the value of logic. When she met the Doctor, Zoe was presented with a case study in how illogical, intuitive, actions and instinct could be successful. From their first meeting on Space Station W3, Zoe often questioned the Doctor.

As Zoe became more aware that there was more to knowledge than mere facts, she decided to hide in the TARDIS. She realised that she had learnt as much as she could on the Wheel, where her abilities and role were compartmentalised and defined. Zoe had become ready to discover the universe, and her place in it. Before he felt ready to have her brave the terrors of the universe, however, the Doctor showed her a thought projection of his most recent encounter with the Daleks.

Despite knowing very little about the Doctor, she remained a loyal companion. She described him as old, clever and kind. Despite her apparent bravery, she was quick to call for assistance if she needed it.

Jamie/Victoria and Jamie/Zoe are two of my favourite companion combinations, and I think they were very smart to make Zoe such a contrast with Victoria.  Zoe can be a little insufferable at times, but by this stage she'd become a lot more humanised than at the start, and all three of them play off each other brilliantly.

Sometimes I love Zoe. Sometimes she irritates me to high heaven. In this story I love her and as much as I absolutely love Liz, this story always makes me wonder how things would have been if she had agreed to stay on into the next series. I'm glad that she didn't but with more stories like this I think she would have been a lot more tolerable.

I find Zoe quite hit and miss too. I like her more than I dislike her and she got lots better as her journey goes on.

I don't think I knew they wanted her to stay on though. If I did then I forgot. That would have made Pertwees first season very different, that's for sure.

I remember reading a rumour a long time ago that the reason she chose not to stay was because she was afraid of how she would look with the change to colour. In an interview I read with her though she just said how she wouldn't have felt right carrying on without FH and PT.

I quite like Zoe. I know she is whiny and a bit of a know it all, but I do think she is quite likeable with it. She can be annoying at times, but so can most of the companions and I think she worked really well with Jamie and the Doctor.

This I think sums up my feelings on her perfectly. I love Liz lots though so I am glad she didn't stay on.

I don't think she would have worked alongside Pertwee to be honest. The Second Doctor had a lot more patience than Three did, and he wouldn't have put up with her whinging.

I think the Third Doctor would also have much more competitive intellectually with her Cool
