Camille Coduri is best known to Doctor Who fans as Jackie Tyler, Rose’s mum, in the Christopher Eccleston and David Tennant years. She was an integral part not only of the series’ relaunch, appearing in the very first episode, “Rose”, but also its first regeneration. Camille co-starred in modern classic episodes like “Father’s Day”, “The Parting of the Ways”, the “Rise of the Cybermen” 2-parter, and the series’ very first Christmas episode, “The Christmas Invasion” before returning for two final appearances in “Journey’s End” and “The End of Time” Part Two.
But Camille is much more than Doctor Who, of course. She got her first major exposure to American audiences in the 1991 film King Ralph, starring alongside John Goodman, Peter O’Toole, and the late John Hurt.
She’s also had recurring roles in series like Rumpole of the Bailey, and you’ve probably seen her appearances in A Touch of Frost, The Ruth Rendell Murders, The Last Detective (starring Peter Davison), Lark Rise to Candleford, Ashes to Ashes, Midsomer Murders, and many others.
She has appeared in two films written and directed by her Doctor Who co-star Noel Clarke, Adulthood and 188.8.131.52.
