Adjoa Andoh

Adjoa AndohAdjoa Andoh is an actress with a long and successful career on film, television, stage and radio. She has played lead roles at the RSC, the National Theatre, the Royal Court Theatre and the Almeida Theatre.

Adjoa is a familiar face on television, notably of course in Doctor Who as Sister Jatt in New Earth, but more significantly as Martha Jones’s mother Francine.

She has had long stints in Casualty and EastEnders and has also appeared in Jonathan Creek; the 1995 Tomorrow People story “The Rameses Connection” (the one with Christopher Lee); Noel Clarke’s films Adulthood and Brotherhood, MI High and many other high-profile films and shows.

Adjoa made her Hollywood debut in 2009 starring as Nelson Mandela’s Chief of Staff Brenda Mazibuko alongside Morgan Freeman as Mandela in Clint Eastwood’s Invictus.

We are very much looking forward to welcoming Adjoa to Derby QUAD and thank Matthew Campbell of M&M Famous Faces for helping to make this happen.

David Warner

David WarnerDavid Warner is one of the preeminent British actors on both stage and screen of the last fifty years. In the 1960s, his Hamlet was considered to be the defining one of his generation and he remains a classical actor of great renown. He is no stranger to science fiction and has a worldwide following for his many appearances in the Star Trek TV and feature-film franchise.

David has enjoyed a film career second to none on both sides of the Atlantic. He is known for such films as Morgan – A Suitable Case for Treatment, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Tom Jones, The Ballad of Cable Hogue, Cross of Iron, The Omen, Holocaust, The 39 Steps, Time After Time, Portrait in Evil, Time Bandits, Tron, Titanic, and various characters in the Star Trek franchise including Star Trek V: The Final Frontier, Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country and Star Trek: The Next Generation. In 1981, he won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Miniseries or Special for his portrayal of Pomponius Falco in the television miniseries Masada.

It’s probably true to say that he was too busy off being a major film star to have crossed paths with Doctor Who during the classic series; and so it was not until 2013 that he made his Doctor Who TV début as the Duran Duran loving Russian Professor Grisenko in the Eleventh Doctor story Cold War.

David has played many, many roles for Big Finish both in Doctor Who stories and in their other series. Most prominently he has played an alternative universe version of the Doctor in two Doctor Who Unbound releases and in the New Adventures of Bernice Summerfield.

We look forward immensely to welcoming David to Derby QUAD and Whooverville.
