I feel Leela was more effective when covered up. Her semi-nude form was a distraction to the story for me at least once I reached puberty.

If so, it worked and I am sure not just for me. I would have rather focused on the story, the plot, what have you, and see what the Doctor was up to though! :lol:

Prydonian, you need to learn to multi-task.
I've always been pretty good at oogling half-naked women while following an intricate sci-fi story.
Sure, it's taken years of study and practice...

LOL that is a good one! That got me laughing. Thanks for that. I agree, I was not able to do much multi-tasking in the day. I was able to focus on maybe one thing at a time and that was it. I don't know, seems so long ago. :lol:

I've always had the idea for a Doctor/ Leela story whare at the climactic point of the last episode they use a transmat to beam into the arch-villain's lair. Unfortunately, the transmat is slightly malfunctioning and they arrive in each other's outfits.
The arch-villain when seeing this abomination appearing before his eyes totally freaks out and promptly spontaneously combusts thus saving the universe. The Doctor guffaws outrageously and turns to Leela and winks.
Leela says "You knew that would happen!" The Doctor says "Yes, I tampered with the reciprocators. We'll have to do this more often."
Wouldn't have been allowed on seventies TV but think of the perplexing mental images created on a Big Finish audio. :o

Mad monk,

What if in that scene it was Sarah Jane and he landed up in her Andy Pandy stripped jumpsuit? And the pant legs were up to his knees. :lol:

What kills me in those old shows is how the women do all that running around in dresses, skirts and heals. No wonder they needed someone to help them up. But I don't recall a time when a comment was ever made about a run in a stocking or a broken nail or their make up running, lol. "Oh shoot! I just got a run in my stocking. You Daleks will just have to wait until I go and tidy up." *snort*
