April Danecroft is the student Mark tries to seduce in the episode University Challenge. She has low self esteem, is fidgety and nervous, but is very intelligent and beautiful. She works part time at a shoe shop near Mark's flat in Croydon where they meet and discuss Mark's foot size and ancient Egypt. Mark then follows her to his alma mater Dartmouth University. She is invited, along with Mark, into Professor Mcleish's inner ring.
