Six of the actors who have played Doctor Who’s companions - Billie Piper (Rose Tyler), Karen Gillan (Amy Pond), Freema Agyeman (Martha Jones), Louise Jameson (Leela), Katy Manning (Jo Grant) and Carole Ann Ford (Susan Foreman) - discuss their experiences of the long-running BBC TV sci-fi show
The Guardian will also have interviews with even more companions in tomorrow’s (September 28) Weekend Magazine.
I guess Martha Jones and Amy Pond tweeting to each other makes me smile. Cause it does.
DW Confidential Rewatch: 3x01 Meet Martha Jones
I drew this and brought it to Gallifrey One to get it autographed by the one and only Freema Agyeman!
Edit: just to be clear, Noel’s joking about the “wife” bit.
This is so perfect
i just found the autographs I got from david and freema when I was 9 years old
i wrote them both a long letter about how much I loved dr who and how awesome I thought the show was with them in it and then two months later these came in the post and my little nine year old self died of happiness.
This is rather lovely. Bernard Cribbins, who of course you’ll recognise as Donna Noble’s grandad Wilf from Doctor Who, is starring in a new TV show called Old Jack’s Boat, on the BBC children’s channel CBeebies.
The show revolves around a fisherman, his pet Salty Dog, and the stories he tells, and also stars (among other people) fellow-Who graduate Freema Agyeman. Bernard is no stranger to children’s TV, having narrated and appeared in all sorts of children’s shows, from The Wombles (a ’70s animated smash hit, that actually got revived in the late ’90s), to The Railway Children.
But in his latest show, the one thing the production team are always on the lookout for are stories. And having been taken back into the Doctor Who family by Russell T Davies, Bernard knew just the fella to ask.
my only reaction: OMG Feema Agyeman!!!!!!
(and then of course…)
(as if you needed them)
Reasons to love Martha Jones, #2
Because when the light hits her face just so, and all her bravery and strength and intelligence and dignity pours out of her… she is the most beautiful person. Ever.
