Supercelebration: Let’s celebrate The Sound of Silence!

Susan Jameson and David Jayston
We are absolutely thrilled to announce that Susan Jameson and Michael Jayston will be attending Supercelebration in September.

The pair starred as the ill-fated brother and sister duo, Anne and Russ in the classic UFO episode The Sound of Silence. Since then, they have made numerous film and television appearances between them, with Michael memorably playing the villainous Valeyard in the Colin Baker era of Doctor Who, and Susan playing  the regular character of Esther Lane in New Tricks for over a decade.

Supercelebration is shaping up to be a real treat for fans of UFO, with Susan and Michael set to join fellow cast members Penny Spencer, Georgina Moon and Gary Raymond. And there could be more to follow…watch this space!
