  • Shouldn't Leela have died of old age long before Romana even returned? Since she's descended from Earth, she shouldn't live much longer than 150, probably less if her people didn't have access to modern medicine. Romana was away with the Doctor for possibly decades, and then was in E-space for a long time. Why hasn't Leela even aged?
    • You ask that when the franchise is about Time Travel? It's probably only been a few years on Gallifrey!
      • Isn't travelling through Gallifrey's timeline impossible or at least forbidden?
      • Leela is not aging due to Time-Stuff which keeps her young. They address it in the series. It catches up to her when she leaves Gallifrey for an extended period.

How well does it match the trope?
