Big Finish “Leading Ladies” sale

Big Finish have a sale of full cast Audio Dramas starring some of the strongest female characters in all of Doctor Who.

I love all these women, particularly River Song, Missy, Liv Chenka, Donna, Rose, and Yvonne Hartman.

Which are your favourite leading ladies?

No Liz Shaw, Jo Grant, or Barbara listed, and only one story each for Ace and Leela (both with River Song)…

(Also, only one Romana story.)

On audio, I absolutely love Liv Chenka. I’m also a big Donna fan, although I don’t think she comes across as well on audio.

Then there’s the wonderful Sarah Jane Smith, Liz Shaw, Leela, Vicki and Barbara. There are loads more companions who I would rate as strong characters, but I don’t want to get into listing them all. So many are good.

Last, but not least, the thirteenth Doctor!


This is almost word for word what I came to say!


the women of Doctor Who are like, 90% of the reason why I love the show so much :rofl: as for the list on the BF sale, Sarah Jane and River and Kate are definitely my top three :blue_heart: the list that continues after that is very, very long, and that’s not even counting minor female characters I love…

One thing definitely notable in Doctor Who is there really are a lot of strong women…



Yes, there are! Great pictures. One was flagged by the AI as NSFW, can you guess which one? :rofl:


Well, first thought would’ve been Leela. If it thought Professor Rumford was nsfw, that is pretty amusing…

(I went for that specific shot of Romana because I also like the professor. These were pretty much me popping into episodes and taking snapshots.)

Incidentally, for anyone curious, the pictures are:
Barbara in The Aztecs deciding to be a goddess,
Jo Grant in The Sea Devils with the Doctor and that awful ministry guy,
Liz Shaw with the Doctor and Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart in the last episode of Spearhead In Space,
Leela in the last episode of Face of Evil,
Romana I with the wonderful Professor Rumfield in Stones of Blood,
Ace battling Daleks in Remembrance of the Daleks, &
The new Brig in Battlefield.

I already have all of these or I would certainly be taking advantage of the sale. But yes, +1 on River Song. There are countless ladies in Doctor Who that I love- but River is basically my childhood hero. My role model growing up, and hugely formative to who I am as a person, even. I never quite realized just how much until recently.
