Jessica Martin

Jessica is best known to us as the werewolf Mags in the Seventh Doctor story, The Greatest Show in the Galaxy, she returned to Doctor Who in 2007, providing the voice of the Queen in the Christmas special Voyage of the Damned.

She came to prominence in the 1980s as a comedy impressionist, and has worked extensively on stage, including leading roles in a number of West End musicals.

In recent years, Jessica has developed a second career as a comics writer. Her first published work was a story illustrated by her ‘mentor’ Mark Buckingham, leading artist on Vertigo’s “Fables” series which was included in the Thought Bubble Anthology 2013. Her first comic written and drawn by herself was “It Girl” about silent film superstar Clara Bow. It was self-published in November 2013 and was selected as one of the “Ten Must Own Comics 2013” by Broken Frontier’s Small Press website.

Her first graphic novel Elsie Harris Picture Palace set in the 1930s British film industry was short listed in the Myriad First Graphic Novel Prize 2014. It was published in Spring 2015.

We look forward to welcoming Jessica to this special Whoovers meeting, which takes place at the VoiceBox on Friday July 7th, 7.45 – 10.30pm.. Entrance £10 waged / £5 unwaged.
