Message for Heather
During the weekend of Gallifrey One (February 17 - 19), my friend Heather had a bad seizure after Saturday’s events and was briefly hospitalized. It was there she discovered the breast cancer she was fighting in 2016 metastasized into her brain. I’ve known her husband, Stephan, for many years during my San Diego Comic Con days, and after hearing this horrible news, I wanted to do something nice for them both.
After Gallifrey One ended, I sent a request to Matt Lucas on Twitter to see if he and the other cast members could make a video for Heather. Matt responded and told me to email his agency, Troika Talent, to provide further information. Once I did all that, I only waited a few days. I received an email back on March 1st from his agent with this video attached. While working on the episode, World Enough and Time, Matt filmed himself, Pearl, Peter, and Michelle a get-well-soon message for Heather.
I’m only posting this because Series 10 is done filming and Heather wants to also post it online. Matt also said it was okay to share after the episode aired.
I’m very grateful they did this. It was one of the most thoughtful, kindest, and sweetest gestures the main Doctor Who cast ever did for my friends! 😊💕
