Lane went on to become a theatrical agent, representing Tom Baker, who would play the Fourth Doctor in 1974, and Janet Fielding, who would play companion Tegan Jovanka in 1981 and herself later become a theatrical agent.
According to The Handbook: The Unofficial and Unauthorised Guide to the Production of Doctor Who, Lane was a candidate for the role of Susan Foreman in 1963. Although she attended an interview, she was never actually offered the part; she withdrew herself from consideration when she discovered a year-long contract was involved.
Lane is the last surviving companion actor of the classic series who has not recorded a role for Big Finish Productions, although Dodo has been represented in several Companion Chronicles and Short Trips audio adventures. On 23 November 2013, Lane made a rare television appearance, passing along anniversary greetings during Doctor Who Live: The Afterparty. During the 2020 COVID-19 outbreak, she made a brief appearance in Fantom Films' Time-Space Visualiser online convention, sending her greetings to Doctor Who fans.
