Best known for her work on Coronation Street, she acted alongside Tenth Doctor actor David Tennant and Neve McIntosh in Single Father for the BBC in 2010. In 2011, she co-starred with Lesley Sharp in the crime series Scott & Bailey, based on an original idea by Jones and Sally Lindsay. The series debuted on ITV a few weeks after the broadcast of The Doctor's Wife and is still in production as of 2013. Concurrently with Scott & Bailey, Jones also co-starred in the occasional crime drama spoof series A Touch of Cloth, in which Karen Gillan guest starred in 2014.
Jones returned to the world of time travel in February 2014 when she took the lead role in a stage adaptation of Virginia Woolf's centuries-spanning novel, Orlando.
