The Evidence Is Piling Up - Will Sophia Myles Be Returning To Doctor Who?

Little Bleeder Nick Halliday has compiled a good number of indicators that Sophia Myles, who previously appeared as Reinette in The Girl in the Fireplace, will be making a return to Doctor Who. There’s no smoking gun here but you’ll probably be able to smell the smoke.

Here are Nick’s puzzle pieces.

  • Doctor Who is currently filming in spain. Sophia Myles was complaining on Twitter over the weekend about her luggage as she is also in Spain.
  • She was recently interviewed by Doctor Who Magazine star interviewer Benjamin Cook with no mention of when or in what context this interview will appear. The staff of Doctor Who Magazine do appear to know who the next companion will be but are keeping shtum.
  • Steven Moffat has been tweeting quite a lot to Sophia recently and heavily recommending that his followers follow her as well. They’ve been seeming quite pally of late.
  • Myles is scheduled to appear at the Doctor Who convention later this month. This would be the perfect time to announce her return to the show.

And I can add that Tom Spilbury, editor of Doctor Who Magazine, has tweeted about a meet-up with Myles too.

Now, I don’t think Ms. Myles is necessarily going to appear in the Western episode necessarily, but it does look like multiple episodes will be filmed in Spain. Perhaps she’s part of the Skaro episode that has been rumoured?

It’s worth noting that Moffat has referred to the next companion as a “new friend.” Also, good intelligence was pointing to Miranda Hart appearing in the show during the next series, and so she’s still worth considering as an alternative companion.
