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…)

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.
Freema and John.
Former Doctor Who star Freema Agyeman has been cast in the upcoming Sex and the City prequel, The Carrie Diaries.
She will play Larissa in the new TV show, a character described as a “hip, cutting-edge editor/party girl” who works at Interview Magazine, reports Deadline.
Larissa will act as something of a mentor for the young Carrie Bradshaw, who will be played by AnnaSophia Robb in the pilot episode for US network CW.
