I've only recently discovered the excellent BBC Wales program,Torchwood and thanks to the miracle of Netflix, I finished watching all three seasons in less than two weeks. I'm hooked and I highly recommend this terrific sci-fi television series!
Naoko Mori is a British actress who is best known for her roles as Sarah (Saffron's 'odd' friend) in Absolutely Fabulous and Toshiko Sato in Doctor Who and Torchwood. In 2005, Mori had a small role as "Dr. Sato" in the Doctor Who episode "Aliens of London". This was the fourth episode of the first season of the revived show. Producer Russell T Davies took note of her performance and later decided to bring her character back as a regular in the first two seasons of the Doctor Who spin-off series,Torchwood. Mori's character, Toshiko Sato, was killed in "Exit Wounds", the final episode of Torchwood’s second season, but she has not ruled out the possibility of returning to the show at a later date (if you ever get a chance to see the show, you'll know that this might be within the realm of possibility).
Mori also portrayed Yoko Ono in the BBC Four production "Lennon Naked", which aired in the UK during June 2010. The film reunited her with Christopher Eccleston, who played John Lennon, and opposite whom she played Toshiko Sato in the Doctor Who episode "Aliens of London".
She's cute, she's sexy and she has also earned popularity as an iconic "tech-geek" hero. That's enough to secure her a spot in the Catacombs alongside fellow Torchwood actor, Eve Myles (last Week's "Gal" Friday inductee).
