Freema Agyeman On Doctor Who's 50th Anniversary


Former Doctor Who Actress Freema Agyeman, 'Martha Jones', spoke to 'The Independent' in Novemeber saying:

“I’ve just heard rumblings and my agent was talking about it because there’s a tight-knit of us. In terms of working with David and with Karen, we’ve all got the same sort of circle really, so a mention of things but nothing’s really been in set in stone. But if they want to do a big group thing, I can’t really envisage anybody in the Who family saying no because it’s quite a marked occasion and a good opportunity to rekindle. For the fans, it’s exciting for them as well and everyone gets together."

However, she recently spoke to 'Crave' to clarify what her role in the 50th Anniversary would be. She said that she would only be making publicity appearances and won't be appearing in the anniversary special.

“I’m doing two things for the 50th but nothing to do with being in the drama,” explained Agyeman. “I got misquoted hideously once saying that there are some rumblings going on about being involved in the 50th in terms of the drama. It’s not. It’s in terms of conventions and interviews and things like that, which we’re all doing stuff to promote the 50th. We have to. It’s the ‘Doctor Who’ family and we want to. I think in terms of my involvement in the show, that’s a different thing now. It moves on, it changes and that’s a good thing.”

Freema is currently starring in the new American Series, 'The Carrie Diaries' and added that she will be in America for the foreseeable future, depending on how the series is received.

Anyone else want to see Martha back for the 50th?
