Freema Abandons Torchwood!

Many scripts for Torchwood Series 3 have been scrapped after Freema Agyeman (Martha Jones in Doctor Who) has announced that instead of doing Torchwood she will be moving to the BBC's major rival, ITV, to act in the British version of the USA show Law and Order.

It was previously believed that Freema would reprise her role as Martha in Torchwood's five-part mini-season after a successful few episodes on the programme earlier this year. Apparently Russell T Davies is seriously annoyed by this news, as it was him who gave Freema her 'big break' in Doctor Who.

A source (presumably an insider) told The Sun newspaper: "This has really mucked things about. We’ve had to go back and re-edit loads of scripts because she’s not going to be in it. ITV is the Beeb's bitter rival, so the fact she's going over there to star in a big new project has not gone down well at all."

I have to say, I wasn't very happy at this news, what do you think? Please make comments below...


  1. NOOOOOO!!!!! FREEMA CAN'T LEAVE US!!!!!!!!!

  2. That's a shame, I was looking forward to Martha returning to Torchwood as a full time member as well!


Do you want Christopher Eccleston back for the 50th Anniversary?
YES!! - That would be absolutely brilliant!
Not sure - I'm not bothered either way, to be honest...
No - it's good to see the back of 'im!
