Margaret John dies, aged 84

The Welsh actress Margaret John passed away earlier today, aged 84.

She first appeared in Doctor Who back in 1968 as Megan Jones in the story 'Fury from the Deep', only to reappear 36 years later in the 2006 episode 'The Idiot's Lantern', where she played a victim of The Wire, Grandma Connolly.

She is probably best known for her role as Doris in the comedy series Gavin & Stacey.

She will be missed x".

Margaret John's other acting credits include: Coronation Street, Dixon of Dock Green, Z-Cars, Doctor Who, Little Britain, Emmerdale, Last of the Summer Wine, Crossroads, The Mighty Boosh, Skins, My Family and Casualty.

In 2009, the actress was presented with the BAFTA Cymru Lifetime Achievement Award.
