I always have thought that your Fourth Doctor would work well with an older female companion. This was confirmed in the series when you were paired with Beatrix Lehmann in the Stones of Blood and more recently your partnership with Susan Brown's Mrs Wibbsey!
In Meglos you worked with one of the first Doctor Who companions, Jacqueline Hill. Do you have any memories of her and did she talk of the black-and-white days of 1963?
P.S. I am heartened that birds love sunflower seeds in your neck of the world (from your post where you hang up seed rings for them). I have two birds -- a hand-raised corella (like a cockatoo) and a talking galah ("Hello! I'm Sexy Michael" no less!) -- who cannot resist the temptation of sunflower seeds!
