Freema Agyeman, who played Martha Jones in 'Doctor Who', has admitted that she would only return to the show if her character was "developed" more.

Freema Agyeman would only reprise the role of Martha Jones in 'Doctor Who' "if there was some sort of development of the character".

The 35-year-old actress appeared on the popular sci-fi show from 2006 to 2010 and she admits she would consider returning to the role - but only under the right circumstances.

Freema, who is currently starring in audio-drama 'Six Degrees of Assassination', told BANG Showbiz: "It's something I would consider, but if I'm honest, I'd only really do it if there was some sort of development of the character.

"I loved the show - it's brilliant - but I thought there were more things we could have done with Martha. She was this strong woman, but I thought we got bogged down in the love story side of things."

Since leaving 'Doctor Who', Freema has appeared in 'The Carrie Diaries', a prequel to the HBO television series 'Sex and the City' - and she now splits her time between the UK and the US as she seeks the most exciting work opportunities.

She said: "I spend half my time in the US and half in the UK. I'm doing more stuff over there just because the industry is so huge in the US. There are so many opportunities for work.

"It's the case that I go where the work and the best opportunities are, and I've been lucky to have been offered so many exciting and different parts."

'Six Degrees of Assassination' is now available on - sign up to Audible and download the full series for free.
