Freema Agyeman has revealed that she’s more than happy with the BBC’s choice of casting for the Eleventh Doctor, Matt Smith.
The actress, who played the Doctor’s companion, Martha Jones, in Series 3 and 4, told DigitalSpy that she’s confident Smith will be outstanding when he takes on the role for Series 5 in 2010.
“He’s great. I can imagine there must have been a fair few people up for that role,” she said. ”For the producers to have such confidence in him, he must clearly have blown them away.”
She added: “He’s a really good actor in all the other things he’s done. I think he’s going to be outstanding.”
Filming for Series 5 will begin in July.
