Jackie Lane was born on 10th July 1947 in Manchester. Early work as an actress was as part of the Library Theatre Company in Manchester and television work included Compact and an appearance as Cheryl, a fan of Walter Potts in Coronation Street in January 1964 under her acting name of Jackie Lenya. A couple of months earlier she had been considered for part of the original cast of Doctor Who but had turned the offer down as she did not want to commit herself to a long run in a series. In 1966 she changed her mind when offered another part as the companion Dorothea "Dodo" Chaplet which she played for the next five months. Soon afterwards she up acting and became a secretary in the Australian embassy in Paris. Later on, back in the UK, she became a theatrical agent.

Jackie Lane (born 10th July 1947 in Manchester) played Dodo Chaplet, one of the Doctor's companions, from the conclusion of "The Massacre of St Bartholomew's Eve" to "The War Machines." She played the part from February to July 1966 alongside William Hartnell as the Doctor.

Lane was 18 when she played the role and thus was the youngest female actor to have played a companion in the series — Matthew Waterhouse, who played Adric in the early 1980s, being the youngest male actor to have played a companion. She went on to become a theatrical agent, representing Tom Baker, who would play the Fourth Doctor in 1974 and Janet Fielding, who would play companion Tegan Jovanka in 1981.
