Another guest announcement for Andercon is actress Sophia Myles, who, along with Ron Cook were arguably the most positive aspects of the 2004 box office bomb, Thunderbirds Are Go.
As we all know, Sophia played undercover agent, Lady Penelope Creighton-Ward , while Ron Cook played Aloysius Parker, her loyal chauffeur.
While the film had very few redeeming features, Sophia and Ron both played their respective roles almost identical to their original Television counterparts, much to the delight of fans and critics alike.
Sophia, also appeared in what I personally consider to be one of the best episodes from the rebooted Doctor Who series when she played Reinette aka Madame De Pompadour in The Girl In The Fireplace, written by Steven Moffet, and based on the Audrey Niffenegge novel, The Time Traveller’s Wife.
If someone had told me prior to it's airing I would be recommending a love story for Doctor Who I'd have found that hard to believe, but, I've got to say I love this episode with it's many touching and moving scenes, which incidentally, don't over milk it like some of the rebooted Doctor Who episodes I've seen.
I'll forgive the corny ending with the heroic Doctor on horseback, and even the Clockwork Robots look chilling at times.
I think the only thing that would enhance Sophia's appearance at Andercon is if Ron Cook made a surprise visit!
