Rookie actress Claudia Grant has been cast as Carole Ann Ford in An Adventure in Space and Time, a movie about the ‘genesis’ of the Doctor Who TV series back in 1963.
Ford played Susan, the Doctor’s original beautiful girl companion, though in her case she was also his biological granddaughter (the Doctor Who mythos was fuzzier back then).
The news comes from Grant’s agency, which posted this bit to their website:
Congratulations to CLAUDIA GRANT (see actresses) who is shooting An Adventure in Space and Time, her first TV job since graduating in the summer. The 90 minuter written by Mark Gatiss for the BBC tells the story of the genesis of Doctor Who. Claudia is filming the role of actress Carole Ann Ford who played the first Doctor’s granddaughter.
