Katy Manning to play Queen Victoria in The Secret of Springheel’d Jack!

Typical.  You wait years for a Doctor Who Companion to play Queen Victoria and two come along at once.  While Jenna Coleman is doing a grand job portraying the young Victoria for ITV it turns out the legendary Katy Manning (Jo Grant, Iris Wildthyme) is also taking on the role in the final episode of The Secret of Springheel’d Jack.

While we were already excited about the conclusion to this epic saga (now in it’s third season) we can hardly contain ourselves.  Katy’s no rookie when it comes to impressive audio performances, she’s the voice of  Iris Wildthyme for Big Finish, so we’re expecting her to knock our socks off!
