Nicola Bryant: Peri Perfect

November 19, 2011

.

Talent…

.

… These are the lovely ladies and gorgeous girls of eras gone by whose beauty, ability, electricity and all-round x-appeal deserve celebration and – ahem – salivation here at George’s Journal…

~~~

For many, she frequented Blighty’s (and the world’s?) favourite science fiction show Doctor Who  in its least popular period, but she easily transcended this, being now so fondly recalled she’s one of the few Doctor’s companions who can boast her own official action figure. Er, yes. She’s pretty as a button – actually, scrap that, sexy as hell – bodaciously busty and (by her own admission) a lover of many a double entendre; she’s Nicola Bryant and she is, yes, verily the latest addition to the Talent corner of this very blog…

Profile

Name: Nicola Bryant

Nationality: English

Profession: Actress, writer and musician

Born: 11 October 1960, Guildford, Surrey

Height: 5ft 3in

Known for: Playing the American botany student Perpugilliam ‘Peri’ Brown from 1984 to ’86 in Doctor Who (1963-present), opposite Peter Davison’s Fifth and Colin Baker’s Sixth Doctors, a character that was controversial/ popular for making use of her assets in revealing outfits, at least initially. She went on to star alongside Baker again in the made-for-video series The Stranger (1992-95), a partnership than was undeniably, wittingly Who-esque and appeared in the Victorian-set Blackadder’s Christmas Carol (1988). In recent years she has reprised the role of Peri Brown in Doctor Who audio adventures and often appears at fan events devoted to the show.

Strange but true: As an English woman playing an American character, she was encouraged to speak in a US accent in public appearances for Doctor Who and even between takes.

Peak of fitness: Despite her often appearances in only-just-there costumes as Peri, this one’s a doozy – it has to be her Doctor Who debut, the opening episode of the serial Planet Of Fire, specifically the point at which she wears a pink bikini and has to be saved from drowning in the sea by The Doctor’s companion of the time Vislor Turlough (Mark Strickson).

    Despite the fact that “Peri Brown” was probably the scattiest assistant the Doctor ever had, I thought basically she was sex on legs!
    Undoubtedly the most gorgeous assistant as well as the craziest!
    I have seen Nicola Bryant in other programmes on TV and she proved to me she can act differing parts.
    She never got enough TV roles. Maybe because people always remember a character like “Peri Brown”.
    That was a great shame :(
    She is still gorgeous today!

    She is indeed, Peter.

    Do you follow her on Twitter, perchance? She’s most entertaining and chatty with anyone and everyone (her Twitter page address is above)… :)

    Like Raquel Welch, she is a fine actress who got typecast by crummy roles.

      Well, I believe I’m right in saying that the lovely Nicola is, in fact, wife/ girlfriend to a Doctor Who superfan. So, you know, there may be hope for us all… ;)
