Jo Grant

Jo is the third Doctor's assistant at UNIT. She got the job thanks to her uncle, even though she failed science at school. She first appeared in Terror of the Autons (season 8).

Recurring Characters: Ogrons The Ogrons are apelike creatures who the Daleks used as slave labour in Day of the Daleks (Season 9).
Cybermen The Cybermen were the inhabitants of Earth's twin planet Mondas who replaced much of their bodies with machines in order to survive it being pulled out of orbit and flying away from the sun. In the process, they removed their emotions. They were first seen in The Tenth Planet (Season 3), and the model seen here is the same as in The Invasion (Season 6), in which they attempted to invade Earth during the 1970s.
