Re: Whatever happened to Stellar from Dragonfire?

When the DVD producers contacted the actress going by the name she denied she was ever in Dr Who!
Hmmm ... yet the details I asked of her seemed to be in synch with the information I was able to get from other sources. And if you read the comments she gave me, this doesn't sound like something that would be fabricated. For example, I didn't include all her comments about hoping to see her scenes that were cut. And talking about the fact she was looking forward to the DVD because all she had was a tattered old VHS.

To explain more fully the Wikipedia thing. My username is the same there as it is here. And I am still and administrator. I just don't go there anymore because I got pissed off enough by tin gods running the place.

My username is the very first one on the list of administrators. As such I occasionally get query emails from people (who use the "e-mail this user" feature which I have not disabled). A few years back I exchanged e-mails with Christopher H Bidmead (writer of Logopolis, et al) this way regarding some queries about Who-related articles.

Also, even if she didn't go in that direction, I have about 30,000 edits on Wikipedia dating back to 2004. Many of them are on articles like Dragonfire. It doesn't take much to find me. She contacted me asking about whether it's possible to create a Wikipedia article on her. I said no because she isn't notable enough under Wikipedia's sometimes-draconian standards.

The fact Miranda Borman was in Dragonfire is verifiable. She's listed all over the place. The character exists - I remember Stellar.

Why did 2 Entertain have problems contacting her for the DVD? I can't say. I only have your word for it (not you, sorry, the other poster) that they contacted her. She could have told them to go away and then regretted it later. Maybe they didn't offer enough money - which is, I understand, why certain actors stopped doing commentaries and such. If the woman denied being in Doctor Who has anyone stopped to consider that they contacted the wrong person?

She did not approach me asking for an interview. I asked questions, got answers that satisfied me, and then I asked if I could turn this into an interview.

I'm sorry - unless some provides me with a bit more proof, I'm going to dispute claims that this isn't the genuine person.
