What makes Louise Jameson tick? Where did she start her illustrious career from? And where is it heading now? Answers to these questions and more are available now if you fancy tuning in to the first ScratchNSniff broadcast since the show parted ways with RTE.

Louise Jameson starred as Leela in Doctor Who, 1977-1978

From her first acting role as Little Miss Muffet, her early days at RADA, her brief work on Emmerdale, her role alongside Marty Feldman and her Christmas broadcast of Cider with Rosie that caused her dad to shell out some extra money for the family home.

When is Louise Jameson not charming? The answer to that question is never, and as well as details about her wonderful career the actress is also incredibly frank and honest in the interview, talking about some of the pitfalls that she has encountered in her life as well.

There are also interesting facts about Jameson that you may not have known about as well, for example you may be wondering how she is linked to Mary Tamm outside of the Doctor Who world, the answer is within the interview for you to discover!

From roughly the 20 minutes mark into the interview, Jameson starts to talk about her Doctor Who career alongside Tom Baker in the 1970’s, her work with Baker in the 21st century on Big Finish and some exciting news about her current involvement in the Fourth Doctor adventures.

However, as Jameson has such a warm and wonderful personality, you’ll want to listen to the whole interview as it’s quite the treat.

And if you’re wondering, yes, Louise Jameson talks about the 50th anniversary but all she confirms is that she’s been asked to keep the 3 days over the weekend of November 23rd free, presumably for the big Doctor Who blow out that the BBC is hosting.

But then she mentions that she’s heard rumours about something else as well…
