A former Dr Who actress turned author will be at the Marlow Bookshop on Wednesday, November 6.

Anna Hope, who starred as Novice Hame in the science-fiction show, will be giving a talk about her new book, ‘Expectation’ at the Spittal Street venue.

The book looks at Hannah, Cate and Lissa who are young, vibrant and inseparable.

They live on the edge of a common in East London, with their shared world being surrounded by art, activism, romance and revelry.

However, 10 years on, the three friends are not where they hoped to be in life.

Amidst their flailing careers and faltering marriages, they ask the question of what makes life meaningful?

The event will see Anna talk in-depth about the book which will look at her inspirations behind the novel.

Away from writing, Anna’s acting career has seen her star in television shows such as Waking the Dead and Coronation Street.
