Martha Jones Toy Confirmed
There might be more serious matters to content with, such as the Doctor Who vs FA Cup Semi Final, but let’s sit back for a short while and look at pictures of Freema Agyeman as Martha Jones…
Starting with the news that a photo of the 5″ figure of Martha Jones is available at FreemaAgyeman.com! As they say:
…toy company Character Options is set to reveal its brand new collection of action figures and playsets as the series unravels.
Developed in partnership with BBC Worldwide, the stunningly realistic range begins with the Doctorâ€™s new companion Martha Jones and intergalactic enforcement officers the Judoon as seen in the exciting first episode.
Her new figure comes dressed in Marthaâ€™s trademark jeans and leather jacket.
Looks a pretty good likeness, and I think it’s probably fair to expect to see her running around the skirting boards of Kasterborous Towers, avoiding Daleks and Cybermen toys, any time soon… (after May 5th, I’m told).
The No.1 web resource for all things Freema Agyeman shaped has also picked up some screen caps from the trailer to Gridlock, which also features an image of the Face of Boe. If you recall from New Earth, the only sensible thing to come out of the episode was that the Face has something to tell the Doctor. It looks as though we’re about to find out what…
There are further images from Gridlock here.
Of course, the BBC’s Official Doctor Who site has been updated with preview content for Gridlock, including some interesting new images. We’ll be very chuffed indeed on Saturday night – should Doctor Who not air due to the football – if the Doctor and Martha were replaced in the opening animation on the BBC Doctor Who site with a football…
Finally, here it is – the contentious issue of Who vs footy has made the BBC News pages.
BBC One is showing Watford’s clash with Manchester United before the drama, and says it will postpone the show to make way for any extra play or penalties.
A spokeswoman said the programme could not be broadcast after extra time as it would be “too late” for younger fans.
It’s not clear at this stage what effect this would have on Doctor Who Magazine schedules…
