Part of me feels like the lack of females in this is really obvious, but I think it may be down to the lack of companion more than anything else. Until this point, the Fourth Doctor had always had a woman with him and I think because of that I noticed the absence more. From a story perspective though I think it works.

I think at the time it would just have been taken as "that's the way it is".  The issue does get shown up more when you get to there being high-ranking Time Ladies in the 5th and 6th Doctor stories.

Maybe Womens Lib' had a growth spurt in the intervening years? Tongue
