Jemma Redgrave on the 50th: “No acting required”

Jemma Redgrave, who is reprising her role as the Brigadier’s daughter (Kate Stewart) in the Day of the Doctor, recently spoke about her experience filming the special and her future on Doctor Who.

Chatting with The Independent, the actress confessed that there was little she could share.

So, what can I tell you about the 50th anniversary? Well, practically nothing. But I came across a Dalek. There was no acting required. It was a scarifying moment! I work with more than one Doctor…oh, and I worked with more than one Tardis as well.

She also hinted that we may yet see Kate Stewart in future episodes of Doctor Who and that it would be “wonderful” to work with the incoming Twelfth Doctor, Peter Capaldi.
The community of Doctor Who fans have been very kind to me. The Brigadier was such a beloved character so I think people were open to his daughter making an appearance and, hopefully, making some more appearances in the future.

While she’s only made two appearances thus far (the Pond’s penultimate episode, The Power of Three, and Saturday’s The Day of the Doctor), her strong performance and connection to the Brigadier has certainly gained her some attention and popularity. Would you like to see Kate Stewart cross paths with the Twelfth Doctor?

“That’s bacon! Are you trying to poison me?” And from that line on, I’ve been unable to stop watching, reading, musing about the Doctor. As a recent transplant to the Whoniverse, I’ve been trying to soak up as much Who-related knowledge as possible. That journey has taken me from the Tenth Planet to the Fields of Trenzalore and gently set me at the edge of my seat for what’s next. It’s an honor to be here and I plan to bring a unique perspective. I hope you’ll enjoy the journey alongside me.
