From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Yvonne Antrobus (born 1 November 1940) is a British novelist, abridger, radio dramatist and actress, best known for her appearance in the 1965 movie Doctor Who and the Daleks.

Among Antrobus’ television appearances are Dixon of Dock Green (1963), Redcap (1965), Emergency – Ward 10 (1967), The Benny Hill Show (1967), The First Churchills (1969), Z-Cars (1970), Steptoe and Son (1972), The Protectors (1973), Wessex Tales (1973), Within These Walls (1974), The Old Curiosity Shop (1975), Thomas & Sarah (1979), The Bill (1989), The Chief (1990), and On Dangerous Ground (1996).

Antrobus’ other work includes appearances in London’s West End (she was the winner of a London Theatre Critics’ Award for Best Supporting Actress) and in the films Doctor Who and the Daleks (1965), The Pleasure Girls (1965), Mr Quilp (1975), and was interviewed as herself in the 1995 Dalek-movie documentary Dalekmania. Antrobus was unavailable for post-synchronization after the shooting of Doctor Who and the Daleks was complete. So, while she is seen on-screen as Dyoni, her voice is provided by another, unnamed actress.

She has made over 100 abridgments for BBC Radio 3 and BBC Radio 4 and for independent audio publishers, including Vernon God Little by D.B.C. Pierre, The British Journalist by Andrew Marr and Days From A Different World by John Simpson. She was awarded the Abridgers’ Silver Award by the Audio Book Association in 2003 for Churchill by Roy Jenkins. In 2009 BBC Radio 4 broadcast her series Diary of an On-Call Girl, based on the blogs and book by ‘WPC Ellie Bloggs’, the anonymous blogger who is also a serving British police officer.

Antrobus’ books include True to Form and Cut In the Ground.
