Depature[edit]

The article says this:

making her one of the few companions whose departure from the TARDIS has yet to be chronicled on television.

Isn't she the only one for whom that's true, not counting current companions? David (talk) 18:25, 26 October 2010 (UTC)

No, there was Liz Shaw in 1970. Totnesmartin (talk) 12:45, 15 August 2011 (UTC)

Tomorrow's world[edit]

Didn't Ace & Doctor #7 also make an appearance after the cancellation of the show on the BBC Science Magazine show Tomorrow's World in a story made specifically to demonstrate a technique of 3D television by shading the vision of one eye and moving the camera clockwise around the focal point?

I'm not sure that would have been in character, or canon even if it was - that would have been to promote the 30th anniversary (ahem) special, Dimensions in Time. David (talk) 18:25, 26 October 2010 (UTC)

This line[edit]

I find this line misleading and very poorly sourced:

"Additionally, long before Jenny Flint or even Jack Harkness, Ace was written and performed as being receptive to interspecies lesbianism, but the heavy make-up in Survival obscured the intent."

A) It is only Munro's words we are using to justify this, and while she was the writer of the episode, it does not mean that the character (created by someone else who clearly intended her to be heterosexual) was in fact open to lesbianism.

B) Even Munro states that it was her OWN (i.e. Munro's) subtext added into the story because of her political and ideological views, and therefore I doubt very much whether it can really be attributed to the overall character of Ace.

I'm going to be bold and remove it. If someone wants to add it back in fine, we'll discuss it, but for now it is a poorly sourced statement that is very heavy on the OR, imo. Vyselink (talk) 02:02, 9 November 2015 (UTC)

I also removed "While the extent of their physical relations was not stated explicitly on-screen, Ace's interactions with Glitz in Dragonfire were clearly and overtly those of a disgruntled former paramour." as that is DEFINITELY OR and is not sourced at all.
