David Tennant's companion all set for Who's 50th anniversary show

David Tennant and John Barrowman aren't the only ones who are angsty and ready to make a return appearance on Doctor Who for the show's 50th anniversary shindig in 2013. There's another former companion to the beloved Time Lord who's also keen to step back into the TARDIS.

Freema Agyeman, who played the 10th Doctor's (David Tennant) companion Martha Jones during the show's third season (she also made a couple of appearances on Who, up to Tennant's swan song in ''The End of Time,'' parts 1 and 2—as well as on Torchwood), is more than willing reprise the role that made her famous.

IF the call comes, of course.

Speaking to the The Independant, Agyeman said:

I've just heard rumblings and my agent was talking about it because there's a tight-knit of us. In terms of working with David and with Karen, we've all got the same sort of circle really, so a mention of things but nothing's really been in set in stone. But if they want to do a big group thing, I can't really envisage anybody in the Who family saying no because it's quite a marked occasion and a good opportunity to rekindle. For the fans, it's exciting for them as well and everyone gets together.

And what does the Law and Order UK actress think of the recent Doctor Who series under showrunner Steven Moffat, which includes Matt Smith as the 11th Doctor and Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill as married companions Amy and Rory?

Well, I haven't seen all of the season but then I didn't see all of Catherine's [Tate] until afterwards. What I love about it, what they're doing is pretty much what I said when I got the job: I believe the strength of it is change. I believed it then and I wasn't just saying it, because I believe that every time it does change, it injects a new sort of dynamic or flavour to it which has got to be the key to its longevity. So I think that they're doing a fabulous job. I completely applaud and champion them. People are going to have their favourites and that's lovely. It's nice when people say: 'you're my favourite or that person is', so they're going to have their favourites but I think that for what they're doing, they're doing it brilliantly well.
