Biography

Anneke Wills is a British actress famous for playing Polly, the swinging sixties companion to the first and second Doctor in Doctor Who from 1966 to 1967. Other roles include Evelyn in the ITC drama The Strange Report (1969-1970) and guest appearances in The Avengers and Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased). Film roles include Anne in Some People (1962) and Angela in The Pleasure Girls (1965). From 1962 to 1979 she was married to Michael Gough but has subsequently twice remarried. The father of her first child was Anthony Newley, who left her for Joan Collins. In 1970 Wills effectively gave up acting to be a full time mum. Following her divorce from Gough, she left the UK in 1980 and lived in various places in the 16 years afterwards, including in Laos, Vietnam and India in the early 1980s, in the USA from 1983–1986, and in Canada from 1986–1996. She returned to live in the UK in 1996 and is a popular figure on the Doctor Who convention circuit. She has returned sporadically to acting for Doctor Who themed productions and has published three volumes of her memoirs: Self Portrait (2007), Naked (2009), and In Focus (2012).
