Freema “amazed” by Stateside Popularity of Doctor Who

Somebody stunned by all the love emanating for Doctor Who in the good ol’ USA is Freema Agyeman who recently spoke of her pride of being associated with the show.

The actress, who can next be seen in Sex and the City prequel The Carrie Diaries, admitted that she had been amazed by the show’s popularity in the States:

“I am so overwhelmed and so honoured and pleased…I walk down the street here and there are Doctor Who fans coming up to me, and I can’t believe it.

 

I can’t believe how it has just exploded over here.”

Despite missing out on the odd trip across the Atlantic to promote the show (she originally left in 2007 despite later occasional appearances and extra-curricular work with Torchwood and UNIT before bowing out with the rest of the RTD era in The End of Time, Part Two), Agyeman has benefitted from Matt and the gangs frequent fan-pleasing promotional jaunts:

“When I was doing the show, we didn’t get to come over to America and do any of the promotion. The new lot did, but my agent said, ‘Don’t worry, whatever happens with them, it kind of ripples outwards and the whole family reaps the benefit of that’, so it’s been great for my career.”

Everyone’s a winner!

Whether or not she’ll be returning to the show for the 50th Anniversary remains a secret but here’s hoping she continues to forge a path in the US…with a little help from the Doctor of course…

Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.

    Love Freema – seems to me to be a classy lady who’s very proud of her time on the show and very embracing of the fans.
