Doctor Who Episode Guide | Companions | Grace Holloway

Dr. Grace Holloway, portrayed by Daphne Ashbrook, was the Doctor’s companion in the 1996 television movie Doctor Who.


An accomplished surgeon and opera buff, Grace Holloway first encountered the Doctor in San Francisco, where he was fighting for his life after being cut down by a hail of bullets.

Although she did her best to save him, Grace was confused by his alien anatomy and he died on the operating table. Naturally, she was shocked when she found a stranger in her car who claimed to be the man she had just killed.

Soon she found herself in a race against time to prevent the destruction of the Earth, in the company of the Doctor’s eighth incarnation.
