Reports are coming in from those watching the filming of the current block of Series 7, that say that (right now, as this is written and posted) Catrin Stewart has arrived on set.
Catrin Stewart was first and last seen in Series 6’s ‘A Good Man Goes To War’ as Jenny, the Victorian-era maid, as well as lover and half-of-a-fighting-duo with Siluran sword-slinger Madame Vastra; both close allies of The Doctor.
Ryan Farrell – regular photographer of Doctor Who filming – subsequently went on to say Diana Rigg had just arrived on set (see DWF – ‘Diana Rigg and Rachael Stirling in Series 7’'), which sets Stewart’s appearance in the Gatiss-written episode 8, title so far unknown.
With the extremely unlikely prospect that Stewart would return as a separate character to Jenny, this no doubt will provoke the question among fandom as to whether this will also mark the return of Vastra (played by Neve McIntosh).
DWF will bring you more news on this as we get it…
