Freema NOT Sacked

You’ve got to hand it to The Sun. On a day when Doctor Who embarks on a superb-looking two parter, on a day when a British soldier is killed in Afganistan and a prominent broadcaster is forced out of her job because she doesn’t tow the line on the matter of editorial and political opinion, what does The Sun do?

They falsely report that Freema Agyeman has been sacked from Doctor Who. Doesn’t look like a slow news day, does it?

DOCTOR Who actress Freema Agyeman has been axed from the next series, The Sun can reveal.

…Show chiefs think her performance is not as strong as in her earlier episodes.

And they are planning a storyline where the Doctor, played by David Tennant, will lose her and travel through the universe searching for her.

The decision to dump Freema comes as a bolt from the blue after her performance for the first couple of episodes was praised.

A source said: "Freema is very talented but we don’t think she is just right on Doctor Who. None of this is being done with any malice. Freema’s a lovely girl."

This comes just hours after Freema’s appearance on Friday Night with Jonathan Ross, in which she mentioned embarking on Series 4 in a few months.

Kasterborous.com urges you to take a short hop over to the superb FreemaAgyeman.com, where a very strong editorial has been published. More on this later, but in the meantime, let’s have a look at exactly what the BBC said, published on FreemaAgyeman.com:

Official statement from the BBC:

"It is absolute rubbish that Freema Agyeman has been axed or sacked from Doctor Who. However we do not comment on future storylines."

Hey The Sun, look – you just got poked in the eye by a fansite.

In the meantime Freema’s apprearance on Friday Night with Jonathan Ross was great, with the actress looking as stunning as always, and the host – unsurprisingly – drawing attention to the upcoming doll of Martha Jones. And of course there is the reference to Series 4 – something for all of us to look forward to.

It might also be worth noting that while FreemaAgyeman.com are proposing a boycott of the already boycotted in one major UK city newspaper, The Sun’s parent company is owned by one Rupert Murdoch – and isn’t it interesting that all of those events listed at the top of this bulletin lead back to him and his associates…?
