Doctor Who costar and superbly lovely lady Freema Agyeman has been cast as one of the lead characters in a UK version of the US hit drama Law & Order.

Agyeman – whose credits prior to Doctor Who (when she made her first appearance ion Army of Ghosts) included soap operas – will be starring alongside former footballer and Coronation Street star Bradley Walsh in the ITV show, produced by Kudos (Life on Mars, Ashes to Ashes, Spooks, Hustle). According to ITV, they have

"Put together the perfect cast to deliver a modern British take…"

Freema will be playing "hardworking, strong-willed" prosecutor Alesha Phillips in the 13-part series when filming begins later this month.

You can see the gorgeous lady herself much sooner, however, as Agyeman is among the supporting cast for the BBC’s new incarnation of the post-apocalyptic drama series Survivors, which airs this autumn on BBC One.
