They were very unfair to Jackie Lane. She could at least have appeared onscreen and told the Doctor she was staying there. It made me wonder if she left on bad terms - but apparently not, they were just being dicks!

I think this is the first interview footage I have ever seen of her. I gather she has lived abroad for many years now.

I heard but never saw that she gave some kind of "Happy 50th Anniversary" message on a screen for the (New-Who-Focused) Afterparty for "THE DAY OF THE DOCTOR", but the BBC edited her out of it when it was a special feature on the dvd/bluray apparently.

Still mistreating her after all these years.

Am glad she doesn't sound bitter, but it's miraculous that she isn't. She seems such a lovely lady too.

WOW, the hostility! The more I hear about the BBC the worse it sounds.

It's one thing to be like that and i probably would be as well I think but it's another to verbally assault a fan for a simple mistake isn't it? And it's not like Levene is even a star or that good an actor! A Yeti, a Cyberman and a sort of regular in Doctor Who plus a non talking interceptor pilot in one episode of UFO does not a star make!

If she’d watched Doctor Who from 2005 on, she would have already known it wasn’t her Doctor Who.

It’s amusing to see that Frazer Hines was worried that DW would become too PC, and then thought it wasn’t - because a lot of fans thinik it’s too SJW-oriented now.
