I like Leela. She's different and unique. She's not afraid to kill, and she's as tough as the leather that (barely) covers her modesty. She's certainly not your typical 'screaming assistant' - and she's all the better for it.

Author's Summary: The Doctor seems unwilling to take Leela on a trip, having just rescued her from her home world. Is there unfinished business under the three moon's of her planet's past?
Characters: Leela, The Doctor (4th)
Recced because: Here we have a tale narrated by Leela herself. Her portrayal is spot-on, and it's fascinating to see the always-wonderful Fourth Doctor through her eyes. The story is full of danger and intrigue and lots of laughs. It's about a young girl who dreams of becoming a warrior, an ancient demon trapped within the TARDIS, and a mysterious stranger called Norman. Well, sort of. You'll see what I mean.
