9 Facts About Lindsay Duncan

Torchwood was amazing! Very sad though especially when Frobisher killed his family and Jack kind of killed his grandson, but putting all that a side it really did touch you. Some of the best TV I have seen for a long time. Miles better in my opinion than POTD.

Anyway lets look forward to November to 'The Waters of Mars'! First Fact file, Lindsay Duncan, who will be playing the Doctor's guest companion Adelaide.
