Antrobus was unavailable for post-synchronization after the shooting of Doctor Who and the Daleks was complete. So, while she is seen on-screen as Dyoni, her voice is provided by another, unnamed actress. She has made over 100 abridgments for BBC Radio 3 and BBC Radio 4 and for independent audio publishers, including Vernon God Little by D.B.C. Pierre, The British Journalist by Andrew Marr and Days From A Different World by John Simpson. She was awarded the Abridgers’ Silver Award by the Audio Book Association in 2003 for Churchill by Roy Jenkins. In 2009 BBC Radio 4 broadcast her series Diary of an On-Call Girl, based on the blogs and book by 'WPC Ellie Bloggs', the anonymous blogger who is also a serving British police officer. Antrobus’ books include True to Form and Cut In the Ground. Description above from the Wikipedia article Yvonne Antrobus, licensed under CC-BY-SA, full list of contributors on Wikipedia.
