So much has happened since then … Sophia has married and had children, she has reprised her role as ACE in The Power of the Doctor, Jodie Whitaker’s farewell story, which was chosen to celebrate the centenary anniversary of the BBC and transmitted on 23rd October 2022. Then, in Autumn 2023 she recorded Tales of the TARDIS with Sylvester McCoy for BBC iPlayer as part of Doctor Who’s 60th Anniversary.

Sophie discusses this and so much more with her Doctor Sylvester McCoy in this unique interview recorded in front of an audience at Myth Makers Live 3, held at Whooverville 14 in 2023.
