The 33-year-old actress has commented in the past that she would relish the chance to honour the history of Doctor Who for the upcoming anniversary.

"If they want to do a big group thing, I can't really envisage anybody in the Who family saying no because it's quite a marked occasion and a good opportunity to rekindle," Agyeman said in late 2011.

Agyeman discussed Doctor Who further in a recent Crave Online interview, disclosing that there will be no return for Martha Jones this year.

"I'm doing two things for the 50th but nothing to do with being in the drama," the star revealed.

She went on to say: "I got misquoted hideously once saying that there are some rumblings going on about being involved in the 50th in terms of the drama. It's not.

"It's in terms of conventions and interviews and things like that, which we're all doing stuff to promote the 50th. We have to. It's the Doctor Who family and we want to."
