She also played the role of 'Robina Redman' in the hit BBC sci-fi series Doctor Who. Other television credits include

As well as film and television, Jones made her mark in radio by narrating the voice of 'Emma Grundy' in the popular BBC Radio 4's program, The Archers. Her other radio credits include Watership Down, What a Drag and Mansfield Park, which were all for BBC Radio 4.

Jones has also appeared in theatre, which includes That Face at the Royal Court. She played the role of 'Mia', directed by Jeremy Herrin.
