Bonnie Langford: 'I'd love to return to Doctor Who'

Monday March 5, 2012

Bonnie Langford says she'd like to return to Doctor Who - because her character would now be "more rounded".

The actress played Mel in the sci-fi show, who travelled with both Colin Baker and Sylvester McCoy.

Asked if she'd reprise her role, the former Dancing On Ice contestant said:

"I'd love it because I might get a few lines other than, 'Oh Doctor!' That was what I was always like.
"Now the companions are rounded characters, which is always so much more fun to play. But I had a good time doing it."

She added: "I have good memories of the people I worked with. The show used to attract an amazing cast.

"When you look all the notable people who've been guests on that programme over the years, it's quite extraordinary. It's a legend, a national treasure."
