Jovian Wade, who is best known for his on off again gig as Rigsy in ‘Doctor Who’ has revealed that he’d love to return.
In a recent chat with Digital Spy Wade said that he’d not been approached to come back to the show, but he’d jump at the chance if he were.
“I have no idea if Rigsy will return – I didn’t know I’d come back when I did the first one in series eight,” the actor said. “But I’d be up for it. I love Doctor Who, it’s wicked.
“Even just the culture, the fans. It’s crazy – they’re so dedicated and you don’t get that with a lot of shows. I still receive crazy fan-mail now, loads. On EastEnders, you get quite a bit, but this is more than I have for any other show.”
When asked if he can see any chance of him appearing in the new spin-off series ‘Class’ the actor said, “You never know.”
Wade went onto add that he has become a huge fan of science fiction since his adventures with The Doctor. And had been watching older episodes of ‘Doctor Who’ that predate his time on the show.
“I watched a few episodes of Matt Smith, a few episodes from David Tennant, and then the stuff with Peter – just looking at the differences, really, and how it’s evolved.”
He went onto add that he liked all the shows that he’d seen, but naturally likes Peter Capaldi’s take more due to his own experience of it.
SciFiPulse suggest Jovian should check out some of the classic era stories with Patrick Troughton, Jon Pertwee and Tom Baker to get a much better sense of how the show has evolve, but also learn about what the series has lost by dropping its old serialised format. But definitely Troughton because every actor to have played the Doctor. Even the modern incarnations always cite Troughton as their inspiration.
