Doctor Who: Is this the voice of Romana speaking from the past?

Doctor Who fans may have been treated to a blast from the past in a new promotional video.


Made for the re-opening of the Doctor Who Experience museum in Cardiff, the clip features short bursts of Peter Capaldi’s Twelfth Doctor in a new interactive adventure – but also comes with a mysterious voiceover which we’re told is one we should recognise.

And we reckon we do... The female voice says: “I speak to you from the final days of Gallifrey. I am the past you have forgotten. You are the future I will not live to see.”

Pretty cryptic – but surely the words of one of the Doctor’s fellow Time Lords, perhaps speaking from the Time War?

And with that posh accent, we think it could only be one person – Romana, a former companion to Tom Baker’s fourth Doctor and a fellow Time Lord/Lady, as played by Lalla Ward in her second incarnation.

Still not convinced? Listen to this clip of Ward from last year and see if you agree with us.


The Doctor Who Experience re-opens in Cardiff Bay on the 24th October
