Ever since she became one of the greatest guest stars in Doctor Who history, rumors have buzzed that Sophia Myles would eventually make her way back to the TARDIS. Now the actress is actually teasing fans about some talks with Who showrunner Steven Moffat.

Myles played Madame de Pompadour in the acclaimed 2006 episode “The Girl in the Fireplace,” and fans have clamored for her return ever since. She had great chemisty with Tenth Doctor David Tennant, and she has been rumored as a potential full-fledged companion at least twice.

Well, the rumor mill continues, though this time Myles herself is feeding it.

The actress, who fans might also recognize from CBS’s short-lived 2007 vampire series Moonlight, set Twitter abuzz recently when she spilled that she’d been in contact with Moffat:

Who knows why Moffat is reaching out, but we can only hope it has something to do with a potential return to Who. Myles was fantastic on the show, and it’d be great to have the Doctor catch up with her again. But don’t forget: Moffat also has another hit show ramping up a new season with Sherlock, so who’s to say it’s even Who related?

Hmm. What do you think Moffat and Myles are up to?
