If Sarah Jane can do it…

Frazer Hines has been off our TV screens for around 13 years – but he fancies that a return to Doctor Who is his way back…

Speaking to DWM, Hines – who played Jamie McCrimmon, companion to Patrick Troughton’s Second Doctor from 1966-1969 – revealed that he would love to return to the show. 

As one of the show’s enduring chracters and a great turn at conventions, if any other former companion was to come back, Jamie would be a very interesting one.

"I just hope I get a call from the new Doctor Who producers, inviting me back. If Sarah Jane can do it, why can’t Jamie?"

"They’ve got a young male Doctor now, and a young female assistant, so they need somebody like me for the grannies and the housewives!"

Jamie McCrimmon was the longest running male companion to the Doctor.  Hines later went on to become a household name as Joe Sugden in Emmerdale.
