OUT OF THE TARDIS

Doctor Who Magazine’s TARDIS tin contains 120 tantalising, taxing and trivial questions. Each interviewee must answer a random selection…

Carole Ann Ford

Carole Ann Ford selects questions from the TARDIS tin.

DWM is visiting an affluent London suburb centred around a quaint village green. Carole Ann Ford describes the area as “lush”. Like all the buildings on this street, the front of her house is hidden behind an impressive array of flora and fauna. Inside, her home is light and spacious. Carole, who played the Doctor’s granddaughter Susan, comments that, “It feels bigger on the inside – which seems rather appropriate!”

We’re barely through the door before Carole offers us coffee and cake. “It’s lemon drizzle”, adds her husband, Harry. “My wife has good taste.” After our refreshments, we turn to the TARDIS tin. Carole’s face lights up with enthusiasm. “Shall we go in the lounge and do it there?” she suggests. “In case I make a comment, as I’m likely to do”, Harry replies, cheekily. We leave Harry to his afternoon and decamp to the front room. Eager to get started, Carole delves straight into the tin…

Do you have any pets? I certainly do, our beautiful Luna. She’s a Weimador – that’s half-Weimaraner, half-Labrador – but she looks like an elegant Labrador. She hasn’t got a nasty bone in her body, although she might want to lick you to death [laughs]. You’re a dog person then?Oh very much. And a horse person. We did have a horse, but then he died. It was heartbreaking. Horses are very dependent on you and you get so close to them. We said never again. Mind you, we said that with our last dog when he went. But when the time comes, you can’t possibly not have one – you just miss them so much. Plus I was terrified I was going to be arrested for dog-napping! I used to go for a walk in the park and go, “Aww!” to anything, no matter how scraggy it was. So we decided we’d better get another dog before I pinched one.
