Janet Ellis played Teka in the Doctor Who television story The Horns of Nimon.

Janet's longer-lasting impact on Doctor Who may well have been her 1983-1987 stint as the 13th Blue Peter presenter. She was the host who conducted the introductory interviews with newly-cast Doctors Colin Baker and Sylvester McCoy. The latter interview was particularly notable, as Blue Peter had exclusive rights to announce McCoy's casting in the role. She was also instrumental in Blue Peter's celebration of the twentieth anniversary special, The Five Doctors, and the unusually heavy coverage they gave Doctor Who's return-from-hiatus, The Trial of a Time Lord.

She is the daughter of Mike Ellis, the uncredited visual effects assistant who operated the L1 robot in The Mysterious Planet. (DWM 289, INFO: The Mysterious Planet)
