Luck only played a part in it because she went to a convention near me. The rest was intention.
And she's lovely. She's like Martha, only with more energy and loveliness, if you get me. Not that Martha didn't have that, but I got the feeling Freema Agyeman dials up the seriousness more as Martha. Whereas Freema Agyeman was less restrained, and so full of life and energy by comparison.
I also saw Peter 'Chewbacca' Mayhew at a seminar at the same thing. Poor old sod needed a walking stick to get around. I guess that's what happens when you've got gigantism and you get old. He's 70 next month, but he looks older, poor sod. And he seemed to meander a bit. But he answered my question well enough, which was to do with the great British actors he had worked with, including Alec Guinness (of course) and Peter Cushing (though he said he had little to do with Cushing). In fact, he said that he knew and admired Patrick Troughton (both of them were in Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger) from his time in Doctor Who. That's right folks. Chewbacca may not be a confirmed Whovian, but he enjoyed the Second Doctor!
