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.”

smith_11Freema Agyeman has revealed that she’s more than happy with the BBC’s choice of casting for the Eleventh Doctor, Matt Smith.

The actress, who played the Doctor’s companion, Martha Jones, in Series 3 and 4, told DigitalSpy that she’s confident Smith will be outstanding when he takes on the role for Series 5 in 2010.

“He’s great. I can imagine there must have been a fair few people up for that role,” she said. ”For the producers to have such confidence in him, he must clearly have blown them away.”

She added: “He’s a really good actor in all the other things he’s done. I think he’s going to be outstanding.”

Filming for Series 5 will begin in July.

freema_martha_twFreema Agyeman will be a guest on The Paul O’Grady Show on Thursday 26th March.

The actress will be popping in for a chat with Paul from 5PM onwards on Channel 4 – don’t miss it!

freema_martha_twIs she coming back? Isn’t she coming back? One thing is for sure – Freema Agyeman’s had to answer nothing but those questions since rumours of a possible comeback were sparked by the press last month. And she fended off the claim again in a recent interview with The Mirror.

“I don’t know where all that came from,” she told the newspaper. ”Nothing is confirmed, but with that show, the door is always open.”

She added: “I have a great relationship with Doctor Who writer Russell T Davies – he texted me on Monday saying he loves Law & Order. It will happen, but whether it’s for the specials or in 10 years’ time I don’t know.”
