Freema Agyeman would “never say never” to a Doctor Who return

Former Doctor Who companion Freema Agyeman has revealed that she’d be open to returning to the BBC sci-fi series, with the TV and theatre actress saying that she felt there was “more to explore” with her character Martha Jones (who last appeared in the series in 2010, after first starring in 2007).

“I had a really great time on the show, I really loved the character, it brings so many people so much joy,” Agyeman told “So never say never! I feel like there was more to explore with Martha, definitely, but I don’t know what form that would take.”

“I know I kept doing audiobooks until after I’d even left the show. So I don’t know – it could be case of maybe one day, maybe one day soon, maybe one day in 30 years time. We will wait and see.”

Martha fans should probably keep their eyes (and ears) peeled for future audio and televisual projects, then – though of course, viewers recently got to see Agyeman back in the main series anyway, with the actress cropping up in a montage of previous companions during a scene late in series 10 finale The Doctor Falls.

It was, however, an appearance that Agyeman herself was unaware of until the story aired...

“I didn’t even know about that!” she told us. “It was only on Twitter that I saw all of this stuff, and I thought ‘Oh gosh, what’s that all about?’

“That’s the world of Who, isn’t it? It’s kind of incredible how 10 years down the line, people do still want to talk to you about it, and those connections will never go.

“It’s such a gift really, to be part of something that is such a happy show. You know, and all the opportunities that it affords you later on. That association is not one that I ever feel I want to disassociate myself from.”
