At our 2017 event, we celebrated the women creators of Doctor Who, the women behind the camera whose achievements in production, directing and writing have helped shape the course of the series. This year, we’re going to focus on the women in front of the screen: the actresses over the past 50+ years who have brought to life so many important and enjoyable characters we have come to appreciate, to focus on their achievements and their work both within and outside Doctor Who and how they changed the series for the better.
