Neve McIntosh has confirmed that her character, Madame Vastra will return to Doctor Who in 2014.
In an interview with Flicks and the City, McIntosh said: “It will be sad not to be working with Matt again but I’m really looking forward to Peter taking over and seeing what he does with it. We’ll be helping the Doctor more, but I can’t say anything else.”
McIntosh is also keen for Vastra, Jenny and Strax to have their own spin-off show, exploring some more adult ideas, stating: “The sexual themes in Doctor Who should be talked about more and embraced more. It could be edgier and more dangerous.”
“We can do so much in Victorian times, it’s got that steampunk edge to it. Think how freaky that era was with the Elephant Man and all that and just add us into the mix, with time travel and all sorts of weird, wonderful stuff.”
Doctor Who Series 8, starring Peter Capaldi as the 12th Doctor and Jenna Coleman as Clara Oswald will begin filming in November 2013.
