Dame Diana Rigg, her daughter Rachael Stirling and Doctor Who


Dame Diana Rigg is to star alongside her actress daughter Rachael Stirling for the first time, in an episode of "Doctor Who" specially written for them.

Stirling said the pair had not appeared together before because the offers "have not been tempting," adding: "Mark Gatiss has written a gift of a script and an on-screen relationship between ma and I that is truly delicious."
