A Companion To The Doctor’s Companions: Liz Shaw

Hats off to whichever Doctor Who script-writer who came up with the idea of exiling the Doctor to Earth and having him work for UNIT at the beginning of his third incarnation. Especially the Third Doctor. The First would simply not have put up with the indignity, the Second would probably rather have wandered off to learn an eccentric circus skill after a few days on the job,  whereas the charmingly superior Third rather suits his capacity as scientific advisor to the Brigadier.
The only trouble is, the job had already gone to someone else, and another doctor, to boot. Enter Dr. Elizabeth Shaw – played by Caroline John – expert in meteorites, physics and medicine, who has arrived hot-foot from Cambridge university to assist the taskforce in their dealings with extra-terrestrial forces.
