Time Cannot Erase

Before Rose and River, there was Charley.  Charlotte Pollard: “the girl who never was,” for whom the Eighth Doctor would openly defy the laws of time and Time Lords and sacrifice everything to save.  Though, in the end, it wasn’t enough.

Very bright, very intense, very serious actor. I thought he was a great choice. But he stole my look, didn’t he? …And I wanted that leather jacket! So did Colin Baker, 20 years earlier, but I suppose Chris was more persuasive.
