Janet Fielding (publicity portrait).

Janet Fielding (born Janet Mahoney 1957, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia) played companion Tegan Jovanka from "Logopolis" to "Resurrection of the Daleks," with a later cameo appearance as Tegan in the conclusion of "The Caves of Androzani."

Fielding played the part between 1981 and 1984. She made a guest appearance on Jim'll Fix It in a Doctor Who related sketch alongside Colin Baker's Sixth Doctor in 1985 (A Fix with Sontarans). She is a theatrical agent, once representing Paul McGann when he first took the role of the Eighth Doctor.

In 1982, Fielding married Daily Mirror foreign editor Nick (Nicholas) Davies, notable for later allegations of being an arms dealer and Mossad agent. They later divorced. Their wedding coincided with the filming of "Mawdryn Undead" and a gag publicity portrait of the time showed Fielding in her bridal gown, wearing the make-up used for the scene in which Tegan and Nyssa are aged rapidly by physical contact with Mawdryn.

Despite distancing herself from Doctor Who for many years and vocal in her criticisms of the program, Fielding returned to the role of Tegan for the Big Finish Productions audio drama titled "The Gathering" released in 2006, once again alongside Peter Davison as the Fifth Doctor.
