In Doctor Who Magazine #377 (cover date 3 Jan 2007), on page 51, in the 2006 Season Survey, under "Greatest Contribution", there is a quote from my husband, Eric Gjovaag!
Yes, we filled out the survey and sent it across the pond to England. And Eric got quoted!
What did he say?
"The Greatest Contribution?" asked Eric Gjovaag Washington, in the USA, "I considered David Tennant, Russell T Davies, and even Paul Kasey for all the creatures he's played. But I finally picked Billie Piper for showing everyone just how important the role of the companion is, how much the companion can contribute, and for being so good at it. Billie, in all your future roles, I'll be looking out for you."
