An Open Letter to the BBC

Dear BBC

You know that series you keep releasing on DVD. No, not Dad's Army, the Doctor Who one. Well, I thought I'd mention that with the releasing of the Lost in Time box set, almost every companion is now represented by at least one episode on DVD. Almost every companion, I say, because you appear to have neglected to release any episodes at all containing one Melanie Bush, formerly of Pease Pottage. I know she's played by Bonnie Langford, and Bonnie's not to everyone's taste, and I know she's unpopular, but some of us like her.

And, come on, Katarina, a bit companion from two Hartnell stories, has had more DVD time than Mel. Jo Grant's underwear has had more DVD screen time than Mel Bush. Mark Ayres has had more DVD screen time than Mel, and he wasn't even in the show!

So, please, release a Mel story on DVD. Anything. I'll even be happy with Dragonfire, even if you only release it because it has Ace in it and Mel leaves.

Thanking you in advance,
Alden.
