Sophie Aldred (born 20 August 1962) is an English actress who played ActionGirl Ace on ''Series/DoctorWho''. It was she who provided the inspiration for the CrowningMomentOfAwesome page by [[BatterUp beating a Dalek with a baseball bat]] in "Remembrance of the Daleks." Since the end of her tenure as a companion, she has remained a member of the Who community, editing fan magazines and providing voices for Creator/BigFinish audio plays. She has appeared on several TV shows, such as ''Series/BluePeter'', ''Series/EastEnders'', ''WesternAnimation/BobTheBuilder'', ''ComicStrip/DennisTheMenaceUK'', ''{{Corners}}'', and ''ItsAMystery'', and is currently starring alongside fellow Who-alum Creator/DavidTennant in ''WesternAnimation/TreeFuTom''. She married fellow actor and TV presenter Vince Henderson in 1997, and they have two sons.

The ''Series/BluePeter'' badges that she wore as Ace are her own, by the way - the first being received for a design for a rocket launcher!
