Nyssa of Traken was one of the last companions to the 4th Doctor, and a member of the 5th Doctor’s ‘Party Tardis’ crew.

Nyssa of Traken was one of the very few non-humans to travel aboard The Tardis.

An alien, her home planet destroyed by The Master, Nyssa is one of those OldWho companions who would really have benefitted from being in NuWho, but perhaps her story is too close to The Doctor’s own for that really to ever work.

Rich velvets, dark maroons and burgundys make up the bulk of Nyssa’s wardrobe aboard the ‘Party Tardis’, however in her last couple of episodes she was given a pretty awesome leather jacket, oh and a lace dress that screams FAN SERVICE…

I’ve tried to imagine what a 2017 update for Nyssa’s wardrobe might look like.

As nice as this dress is, and it is very cute, I just couldn’t do it to Nyssa.

The girl’s clearly a fan of a high necked number.
