Hayley Atwell IS in Doctor Who

Oh, hey, look who’s sharing a Doctor Who cover with the Eighth Doctor! Could it be… Agent Carter?

In fact, Hayley Atwell has been playing guest characters on Doctor Who for years. It’s just that many fans are unaware of the fantastic audio adventures with older Doctors and companions (if you can’t see ’em, you can’t see the wrinkles). Unconstrained by a special effects budget, the audios are classic Who with better scripts and more character development, since they can’t use visuals to hold our attention.

Here’s Hayley’s Doctor Who roles through 2014…

Blood of the Daleks (sm)(Jan-Feb 2007) Blood of the Daleks Part 1, 2, playing Asha Gryvern, disgraced scientist, opposite the Eighth Doctor and Lucie Miller.

The beginning of the Eighth Doctor Adventures, a very good place to start. Hayley has an… interesting character twist in this one that (I hope) was a lot of fun to play.

The Doomwood Curse (sm)(August 2008) The Doomwood Curse: Eleanor, young aristocrat, with Six and Charley.

A fun tongue-in-cheek melodrama in which a book’s clichés come to life. I haven’t heard this one yet, but I trust director Barnaby Edwards and scriptwriter Jacqueline Rayner.

CD Art - Whispering Forest(August 2010) The Whispering Forest: Sister Seska, the beleaguered, brave young leader of Purity Bay, opposite the Fifth Doctor, Turlough, Tegan and Nyssa.

I LOVE this story, even if it has a sort of wispy, unsettling tone. Seska’s a perfect Hayley role.

CD Art (sm) Sands of Life(February 2013) The Sands of LifePresident Sheridan Moorkurk, opposite the Fourth Doctor, Romana, and K-9.

Hayley gets to strut her stuff (so to speak) in this two-parter. Listen to the clip below.

CD Art (sm): War Against the Laan(March 2013) War Against the LaanPresident Sheridan Moorkurk, opposite the Fourth Doctor, Romana, and K-9.

More creepy badass Hayley:

So obviously, since she’s played opposite more Doctors than most companions, there’s only one role left for her: the Doctor!
