"I just feel so lucky to have been given the opportunity to appear in Doctor Who in my career. That role was just 14 months of my life but it's great that I am still remembered for it. I have been working with Big Finish for nearly 20 years but there has been a big interest in Doctor Who following the success of the show since it returned to television."
As well as appearing as Leela in the Big Finish audio productions, Louise has been given the opportunity to write on some of the episodes. "They are mentoring me through the writing process by writing some of the shows as well as act in them. I am very flattered that they approached me and that they are opening another door for me in my 60s. I also enjoy doing the Doctor Who conventions. There are huge commercial ones and there are the completely fan-run ones which can be a bit chaotic. But the ones I like the best are the ones in the middle, semi-professional I like to call them, where there is plenty of time to talk to fans."
