Freema Agyeman appeared as a guest on The Alan Titchmarsh Show earlier this afteroon to discuss her current role as Alesha Phillips in Law & Order: UK.

During the interview, the actress briefly commented on her time spent in the TARDIS as Martha Jones, admitting that she doesn’t mind being associated with the role. ”It’s definitely not a negative thing to be associated with,” she explained. ”I have been really lucky to have been in an amazingly big British institution.”

She went on to echo her previous comments regarding the future of her character.

“In terms of the world and the character, at one point I was going to Torchwood, but then Law & Order came up,” she said. ”I think as an actress you need to diversify.”

Freema Agyeman appeared on Graham Norton’s Radio 2 show earlier today and during the interview she briefly discussed the possibility of her reprising her role as Martha in a future series of Torchwood.

“In the 5-part series, Children of Earth, it was mentioned that I was on my honeymoon somewhere, so it’s not a closed door,” she said. “It never is in a series like that, for any of the characters. Once you’re part of that world it could be twenty, forty years before you pop your head back in!”

The BBC Press Office has confirmed that the third series of Doctor Who is to make its way to BBC Entertainment.

Launched in November 2009, the pan-regional channel is available across Europe and in the Middle East, and will welcome Freema Agyeman’s first series as Martha Jones alongside David Tennant as the Tenth Doctor this Autumn.

The press release includes an overview of the series, which can be read below:

The third installment of Doctor Who is full of new thrills, new laughs, new heartbreak and some terrifying new monsters. From the moment the Doctor (David Tennant) walks into the life of medical student Martha Jones (Freema Agyeman) he changes it forever. Together they find themselves travelling through time and space encountering extraordinary events, amazing worlds and faces both old and new. They come face to face with the ruthless Judoon, a vicious plasmavore and the Doctor’s sworn enemies, the Daleks, who have been hiding in 1930s New York with a terrifying plan for humanity.

In a recent Q&A with The Guardian, Noel Clarke reveals his thoughts on Mickey Smith’s marriage to Martha Jones, which was revealed at the end of The End of Time.

“I didn’t mind,” he said. ”It was a good character arc. A lot of Mickey happened by accident. I came in and played him quite badly in season one. We didn’t know what Doctor Who was going to be. Season two, Russell started writing the character more towards me, because he knew me, and Mickey became a little bit darker.”

He adds: “So mostly by coincidence, Mickey has this arc from nerdy guy to bearded freedom fighter. I thought that was cool.”

martha_jones_freema_series_4Speaking on the red carpet at last night’s TV Quick & TV Choice Awards in London, Freema Agyeman revealed that she has no idea what will happen in David Tennant’s finale two-parter because she hasn’t read the scripts, but, according to her, being kept in the dark is a blessing rather than a curse…

“I often believe that, in certain situations, ignorance is bliss,” she told Digital Spy. ”If you don’t know, you don’t know.”

She added: ”That’s what I did for the last episode of the last series, too, because I made a point of not reading it while I was doing interviews because I thought, you can’t bleed it out of me then, can you?”

And she also remained tight-lipped when brought up on the rumours that her character, Martha Jones, will be getting married in the anticipated specials, which are due to air at the end of the year.

“There are many things left for Martha, in my mind,” she said. “And maybe in some other people’s minds, too. But whatever happens, we’ll have to see what we see.”

freema_martha_twFreema Agyeman has addressed the recent rumours regarding Martha’s return in David Tennant’s last episode, as well as the reports that suggested the character will be getting married to Mickey Smith in the story too.

Speaking to DigitalSpy recently, the actress, who played the Doctor’s fiesty companion in Series 3 and 4 of the programme, commented on the tabloid speculation, but was careful not to let any potential spoilers slip.

“You know I can’t confirm or deny anything,” she teased. “There’s always things put out there – some true, some not, and some things that never get out until the day you’re seeing it, which is rare. I will say… just watch!”

When asked about what she thought of Karen Gillan being cast as the new companion in Series 5, she said: “I think she looks great! She’s rocking the Rose look, she’s got the Catherine hair, she’s Scottish like David… we love her! She’s part of the family now.”

She added: “I know there are going to be children and adults out there who will always associate me with Martha Jones, and that’s absolutely fine. Actually, I welcome it, because [the show] changed my life, and it’ll never be something that I’ll think I need to brush off.”
