In the latest Doctor Who Magazine, which is out now, Sophia Myles who played the role of Reinette in ‘The Girl In The Fireplace’, rules out a return to the show in the near future, despite recent rumours.
She said: “Steven and I did talk about Doctor Who and I honestly feel – and I think he feels the same – that The Girl in the Fireplace was so special, I really doubt we could do something better together on that show. It was just so perfect and I would rather leave it at that.”
“If I was to come back to Doctor Who, I don’t think it should be as [Madame de Pompadour]… but it would just ruin it to come back as anything else.”
She added: “Maybe when I’m old and don’t look anything like her. I’d like to come back in 20 or 30 years’ time as a baddy, and cause some trouble! But as for anything imminently? No. I think that would be inappropriate.”
