First Sweet FA interview

Freema AgyemanMissed the first episode of The One Show? Don’t blame you (review coming later). Anyway, the “high point” if there was one was Freema Agyeman, who gave her first TV interview since her appointment as Billie Piper’s replacement on Doctor Who. The interview is available on the BBC web site.

What do you reckon? I thought she was a tad giggly, myself, but it wasn’t the most probing interview I’ve ever seen.

Not seen any take up of my “Sweet FA” nickname yet. Give it time, though.
