Freema Agyeman Talks About Karen Gillian

Freema Agyeman who played Martha Jones in Doctor Who and Torchwood has commented about the casting of the companion for the fifth series of Doctor Who. She described the 21 year old Scottish actress, Karen Gillian, as a "great" choice and predicted that she will do the role justice. Freema added: "You know what? She's like an amalgamation of all of us: she's rocking the Rose look, she's got the Catherine hair, she's Scottish like David, and we share a story - she had a small part in the series before she becomes companion, and I had a small part in the series before I became companion too." Karen Gillian will begin filming Doctor Who series five alongside Matt Smith next month, and the series will air next Spring.
