Real Time | Interviews | Maggie Stables
Characterful companion
Maggie Stables Picture Could you tell us about your character and her relationship with the Doctor?

She has a very good relationship with the Doctor, whom she doesn’t take too seriously. She teases him a lot.

We met in a university context, The history of her family was going to disappear from the records if she didn’t do something about it, so she went back with the Doctor to Mary Tudor’s court and that’s how it all started. She’s an academic lady, but she’s got quite a good sense of humour and feeds her students on chocolate cake.

She’s rather motherly really, although she’s not married. Well, in one of the books she did have a husband, but she doesn’t seem to have one now and there’s been no mention of any children. She keeps a bit of a restraining hand on the Doctor and if he gets a bit boastful she puts him down. She’s not respectful, although she’s very fond of him.
