Andromeda - Artificial female
life-form on the British science fiction fantasy A FOR ANDROMEDA/BBC/1961.
Andromeda (played by Julie Christie) was built by a supercomputer which
itself was constructed from guidelines transmitted through space to Earth
by a mysterious signal from the Andromeda Galaxy (picked up by a powerful
radio telescope). She took her form from the dead lab assistant named
Christine who had committed suicide (prompted by the computer).
Esmond Knight, Peter Halliday, Mary Morris and Frank Windsor costarred
as British scientists who supervised and investigated this unique woman.
In the sequel to the original series THE ANDROMEDA
BREAKTHROUGH/BBC/1962, Andromeda (now played by Susan Hampshire) travels
to the Middle East (Azaran) to fulfill her galactic programming directives.
This sci-fi serial was conceived by astronomer Fred Hoyle and writer
