Delia Derbyshire - the woman who brought the original Doctor Who theme tune to life in 1963 - is to be played by Sarah Winter, her agent reports. The actress has been seen previously on television as Lady Jane Grey in the documentary series Bloody Tales of the Tower, and as Mary Martin in At Home with the Georgians, and has appeared in films such as The Other Boleyn Girl and The Butterfly Tattoo. She has also been involved in a number of short films and theatrical productions.
Filming for the drama continues tomorrow back at BBC Television Centre, where the building has been undergoing some redecoration to 'restore' it to a 1960s feel!
