Also in 2005, Mori had a small role as "Dr Sato" in the Doctor Who episode "Aliens of London". Producer Russell T Davies took note of her performance, and decided to bring the character back as a regular in the first two series of the Doctor Who spin-off Torchwood. Mori's Torchwood character, Toshiko Sato, was killed in "Exit Wounds", the final episode of Torchwood’s second series. She returned to the West End on November 20 2006, when she took over the role of Christmas Eve from Ann Harada in the London production of Avenue Q.
Mori is a Japanese Buddhist.
