There are few women who instil such devotion in fans of a certain age as the utterly charming and beautiful Daphne Ashbrook – and she’s just confirmed that she will be at the BFI on October 5th for the Doctor Who at 50 screening of the 1996 TV movie!
Ashbrook – who played Dr Grace Holloway in the movie and would have been the Eighth Doctor’s companion had a TV series arisen – tweeted yesterday:
I'll be at the British Film Institute on October 5th! http://t.co/AzJZE9EXvh

Via the link to her blog, she continued:
I can’t wait to see Paul McGann, Gary Russell, Jason Haigh Ellory and Andrew Cartmel. And Geoffrey Sax, whom I haven’t seen since we shot the movie in 1996! And I’ll be lucky enough to see my great friend and funny man, Charlie Ross!
I’m getting very excited!
As if there wasn’t already a fantastic reason enough to attend the Eighth Doctor event, now Amazing Grace is on the panel!
