It's our absolute pleasure to announce Sheridan Smith OBE! - with an extra New Years offer to celebrate!
It’s with delight and celebration that we’ve woken this morning to hear that Sheridan Smith – Big Finish’s very own Lucie Miller – has been awarded an OBE in the New Years Honours List!
Sheridan is being honoured for her services to entertainment, which have included roles in such diverse productions as Cilla, Jonathan Creek and Mrs Biggs, with stage appearances in the award winning 2011 version of Terrance Rattigan’s Flare Path, as well as Legally Blond and Little Shop of Horrors. But Big Finish fans will of course know her for her fantastic work as Lucie Miller, stalwart companion in all four series of Doctor Who: The Eighth Doctor Adventures.
Sheridan isn’t the only Doctor Who name on the list either; 50th Anniversary War Doctor and living legend John Hurt will receive a Knighthood, whilst occasional flat mate of the Eleventh Doctor James Corden will also be recieving an OBE. The Hungry Earth actress Meera Syal will also be made a CBE.
Congratulations once again to Sheridan on her fantastic achievement!
