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 Tongue

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 Tongue

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

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 Tongue
