The panellists were Carole Ann Ford, the Doctor's companion in the first episode; first episode director Waris Hussein; Jessica Carney, first Doctor William Hartnell's granddaughter and biographer; Katy Manning, the third Doctor's companion; Kate O'Mara, who played the Rani in the 1980s and Dan Starkey, who played Strax the Sontaran commander between 2011 and 2013.
