Assignment X have gone out on the most spindliest of limbs and suggested that Lara Pulver – last seen coming across all Sherlocked in Steven Moffat’s update of everyone’s favourite violin playing super sleuth (take that Basil the Great Mouse Detective!) – may be about to board the TARDIS.
Of course if you follow the same logic (she’s a woman, she’s worked with Moffat before, female companions tend to outweigh male ones) then welcome aboard Gina Bellman, Julia Sawalha, Fiona Gillies and Gabrielle Anwar!
Yeah, Pul-ver other one, it’s got a sonic screwdriver on it.
Though it’s a perfect opportunity to read just what the True Blood actress thinks of Moffat (after she’s finished being all honoured and flattered of course).
“We haven’t spoken about Doctor Who at all. I think they are very separate entities for Steven, and I think he puts on very different hats, but I love working with him, and if we found another project to work together on whether it is Doctor Who or another season of Sherlock, then I’m sure we’d want to work together again.”
What she actually said: “Yes, of course i’ll appear in Doctor Who” but sadly Steven Moffat was too taken aback to listen to the actual words she said by her being sat around completely naked. Luckily all nudity involved in this anecdote took place well after the watershed.
