Shakespeare Company and The National Theatre. Doris had a long and outstanding career but was always modest about this. The roles she played were many and varied and was a forces sweetheart of The Merchant Navy often heard on radio during the war in "Shipmates Ashore"
Doris never forgot her roots and carried on working until she sadly passed away at the age of 95. The actress died on at Denville Hall, the actors' retirement home in Northwood, Middlesex. The role of Mum made her famous around the world, but she played so many other roles that her whole life was that of acting, and was to be a subject of THIS IS YOUR LIFE.
