A DOCTOR from Shiplake will appear in the final of BBC’s
Mastermind tonight (Friday).
Marianne Fairthorne, 32, who is a quantitative analyst, has already negotiated a heat and a semi–final. She will be up against two other women in the first all–woman final for years.
Dr Fairthorne, who now lives in London, used to attend Shiplake Primary School and her parents, Simon and Belinda, still live in the village.
Mastermind will be shown on BBC2 at 9pm.
