Alethea Blow Charlton (9 August 1931 – 6 May 1976) was a British actress.


She was born in Middlesbrough, North Riding of Yorkshire, England, and attended Ripon High School and the Northern Theatre School which was based at the Bradford Playhouse.[1][2][3][4] After working in repertory for a few years in Yorkshire, she moved to London in 1960 before touring American universities as a member of a group.[1] Alethea's family history was traced by people investigating the Naylor family history. The report indicates that she was descended from a line of people with the surname Charlton, as well as Blow, Dickerson, Naylor and Heyes.[5]

Acting career

Charlton was a cast member in episodes two, three and four of the first ever Doctor Who serial (An Unearthly Child) broadcast in late 1963, as a cavewoman called Hur.[6] She returned playing the character Edith in the serial The Time Meddler in 1965.[7]

Her other TV credits include: Z-Cars, Follyfoot, The Borderers, Doomwatch, Out of the Unknown, Upstairs, Downstairs and a three-year recurring role in the Granada Television drama Sam.[8][9]


She died of a malignant melanoma at the age of 44.[10] Her last known acting role was in the soap opera The Cedar Tree, which was aired posthumously.
