The Polly Wright Appreciation Society: Highland Edition [WHO-50—1967]
The Highlanders, like The War Machines, shows that there’s so much more to Polly than that blonde girl who makes tea. When Ben, the Doctor and their new acquaintance Jamie are captured by the opposing army in the middle of the Scottish Highlands, Polly takes off across the moors with her brand new “dour Scotch lassie” BFF Kirsty. She kicks off her shoes and runs barefoot over the turf, taunting and outsmarting the Redcoat commanding officer, bantering left right and centre, and even making the occasional bit of feminist commentary.
Sure, they cheat a tiny bit by making the Highland lass Kirsty so wet and prone to tears that she makes Polly look like Emma Peel and Sara Kingdom put together by comparison, but it’s still two girls romping around historical Inverness and its environs in disguise, getting the better of everyone.
