Philippa "Flip" Ramon, née Jackson, was a companion to the Sixth Doctor.

History Edit

Early life Edit

Her great-grandfather served in the Royal Air Force during World War II. (AUDIO: Quicksilver)

She had a younger brother named Philip. (AUDIO: Scavenger)

When she was in Year Three, she was cast in her school talent show. Having never learned the poem she was assigned as she was given detention and extra homework for talking in class, she froze on stage before running away, and from then on had a phobia of performing on-stage. (AUDIO: Stage Fright)

Flip's school did not allow her to take her history, French or geography GCSE exams. (AUDIO: The Curse of Davros, Quicksilver)

She was riding on a London tube train with her boyfriend Jared Ramon in 2010 when it slipped through a temporal fissure to the sentient planet Symbios, where she met the Sixth Doctor and Evelyn Smythe. (AUDIO: The Crimes of Thomas Brewster)

First travels with the Doctor Edit

In 2012, her mother had a boyfriend named Nigel, whom Flip considered "creepy." She rescued the Doctor when he was forced to swap bodies with Davros to thwart a Dalek attempt to alter the outcome of the Battle of Waterloo on 18 June 1815. Despite the fact that the Doctor was in Davros' body, Flip nevertheless recognised the Doctor's good nature from her past meeting with him; even before she learned that the "Doctor" was Davros, she assured him that he wasn't to blame for the deaths the Daleks caused while searching for him. Once she learned the truth about the switch, she helped the Doctor escape Dalek captivity and regain his original body, even tricking the Daleks into thinking that the Doctor was still trapped in Davros despite this forcing her to spend some time locked in a room with Davros. With her flat destroyed and her co-workers back home having been killed by the Daleks, Flip turned down the offer to return to the present with Jared in a Dalek time capsule in favour of spending more time travelling with the Doctor. (AUDIO: The Curse of Davros)

During their travels, the Doctor and Flip visited Jago and Litefoot in Victorian London. She thought that London smelt funny. Jago took her on a tour of the New Regency Theatre. After the Valeyard showed her one of his performances, Flip helped in the Doctor's investigation. She later followed him to his TARDIS but this was part of his plans. The Valeyard got her to play Zoe Heriot, before he attempted to rejuvenate himself with the Doctor's darkest thoughts. Flip successfully saved the Doctor and in turn overcame her stage fright by performing nursery rhymes onstage. (AUDIO: Stage Fright)

Flip reminded the Doctor of himself when he was in his early 500s. (AUDIO: Vortex Ice)

Some time later, she became separated from the Doctor in orbit around Earth in 2071, and almost became host to a piece of alien space debris named "Scavenger". After teleporting from its grasp with seconds before her absorption, she became trapped floating in space once again. Realising she was running out of Oxygen, she recorded a message for the Doctor and used her spacesuit thrusters to propel herself to Earth, to either await rescue, or die in the attempt. (AUDIO: Scavenger)

Later, when the Doctor met an older version of Peri Brown on the planet Krontep, she asked about Flip. He told of her fall to Earth, but revealed that he'd used the TARDIS to bend space and time, slowing her descent to a few hundred metres, thus saving her. He then further revealed that he'd received an invitation for her and Jared's wedding, implying that he had returned her to her native time of 2012. After Peri declined his offer to attend the wedding with him, he vowed to return for her, one day. (AUDIO: The Widow's Assassin)

Travels with the Doctor and Constance Edit

The Sixth Doctor never did return for her wedding, but during the reception she was time scooped by an alien race to use as a hostage against the Doctor, sending her to Vienna in 1948, where she met another of the Doctor's companions, Mrs Constance Clarke. After the three had defeated the alien invasion, Flip and Constance, although both planning to return to their old lives, decided to continue travelling with the Doctor, at least until the peace treaty he was currently drawing up was finished. (AUDIO: Quicksilver)

The Valeyard once mockingly offered to tell the Doctor, during his travels with Flip, what would eventually become of her. (AUDIO: Stage Fright)
