Delightful....

...to see that the registrar in tomorrow's SJA episode is played by Zienia Merton, who was Ping-Cho in the 1964 Doctor Who story Marco Polo. I think this must give her the record for greatest elapsed time between her earliest and most recent appearance in Doctor Who and its spinoffs - apparently she is in Friday's episode as well so that will be 45 years, 8 months and 7 days since 22 February 1964. (Of course, that is counting televised versions only - Carole Anne Ford is in a Big Finish audio release as Susan later this year, 46 years on.)

Does she hold the record for longest elapsed time since consecutive appearances?

So none of the cavepeople from 100,000 BC were available?

It'd have to be Jeremy Young: the others are dead.

I expect some of the schoolchildren from An Unearthly Child are still alive, but none seems to have had an acting career after the 1960s.

Didn't she play Sandra Benes in Space:1999, as well?
