Harriet Jones’ Golden Age

Well would you credit it – just days after John Simm reveals he would be happy to return to Doctor Who, The Telegraph features an interview with HarrietJonesMPforFlyDaleNorth actress Penelope Wilton, who says prettymuch the same thing!

There’s a lot more to the interview than a bit of Doctor Who referencing, mind, with particular amusement coming from Wilton’s disdain of reality television an a passage where the interviewer describes how she rants at the radio when some politician says something Ms Wilton disagrees with!

When Russell T Davies, the driving force behind Doctor Who, wrote a role especially for Ms Wilton – she played a meek backbench MP who, after helping to defeat an alien invasion, goes on to become prime minister – she said yes immediately. She admits that running the country is not a job she would relish – unless it meant she got to meet Barack Obama: "I’m delighted by his election."

However, in a recent episode, her character was "exterminated" by the Daleks. "It was fabulous fun," she says. "And I got to sacrifice myself to save the world. Though when you are exterminated on Doctor Who, chances are that you are not dead at all. I could simply have gone to another galaxy.

"You never know – I might make a return."

I’m sure Ms Wilton must know, where we do or not. That Dalek gun movement yet could be sorted out one way or the other…
