Desperately sorry that my friend Maggie Stables, for whom I wrote a couple of Big Finish stories, and who played a companion to the sixth Doctor Who in the audio range, has passed away. Evelyn was funny and kind and sparky and wonderful - very much inspired by Maggie herself, who was all those things and much much more.
one of dr who’s character traits that’s been present for most of the show is their occasional lack of empathy and tendency to not understand why someone dying is such a big deal to their companions (to the point were they’ve brushed off two of their companion’s deaths with an ‘too bad let’s go do something else’ attitude, much to the disgust of their other companions). It’s not out of character for twelve to be somewhat unconcerned or to gloss over someone’s death.

That was the whole purpose of a clown. People laughed at clowns, but only out of nervousness. The point of clowns was that, after watching them, anything else that happened seemed enjoyable. It was nice to know there was someone worse off than you.

I wish I knew what they were laughing at out of shot; whatever it was, it was clearly hilarious. Bless ‘em.
