Sophie Aldred

Actor

Sophie played the role of Ace, companion to the Seventh Doctor, from 1987-1989. Even after the original series was cancelled, the character of Ace lived on through books and comics and, when Big Finish launched their line of Doctor Who audios in 1999, Sophie returned to play the character once again.

Sophie earned her Equity card performing in working men’s clubs and then worked in children’s theatre and musicals before being cast in Doctor Who. Since then she’s worked on a variety of TV shows and her extensive voice work also includes animated programs such as Dennis and Gnasher, Bananas in Pyjamas, Peter Rabbit, and as Tom in Tree Fu Tom. In fact, in Tree Fu Tom, someone called David Tennant plays her sidekick!

Trev & Simon

Actors & Writers

Their multitude of character creations on GOING LIVE! and LIVE & KICKING became legends, whether it was Don & Dougie Draper (We Don’t Do Duvets); Ken & Eddie Kennedy, the Barbers (We Don’t Do Perms) or The Singing Corner (Swing your Pants).

They’ve continued to work both together and separately, as writers and performers, in adult and children’s tv; whether hitting the jackpot on Pointless Celebrities for BBC TV; as comedy consultants and voicing two series of the 26 part comedy clip series Super Matrak for Disney, or a variety of shows for CBBC, CBeebies and CITV for children of all ages, as well as their own film script Fast Boy for Kindle Entertainment.
