Manning is famously short-sighted. A story regarding Manning's short-sightedness is often related about ''Terror of the Autons'', her first ''Doctor Who'' story. Manning had not informed anyone of her limited vision, and the script called for her and Jon Pertwee to run across a field. Manning ran straight into a [[tree]], and knocked herself unconscious. From then on, whenever a story called for the Doctor and Jo to run across quarries or down corridors, Jon Pertwee could be seen leading Manning by the hand.

Fans of ''[[Doctor Who]]'' often refer to these characters as the [[United Nations Intelligence Taskforce|UNIT]] family (UNIT being the fictional [[United Nations]] squad that the Doctor worked for) and Katy has very fond memories of this period of her life.
