Welsh actress Eve Myles returns to the stage next month alongside Zach Braff (Scrubs, Garden State) in his new play, All New People.

Last seen in BBC One’s Torchwood: Miracle Day, Myles stars as Emma in the play, which opens at the Duke of York’s Theatre in London on 22nd February.

Before arriving in London for 10 weeks, audiences in Manchester and Glasgow can see the play at the Manchester Opera House between 8–11 February and the King’s Theatre in Glasgow between 14–18 February.

CultBox caught up with Eve for a chat...


... Q: With the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who coming up next year, would you be up for returning as Gwen for that?

Eve Myles: "Um, I said something at one of these conventions and the press kinda jumped on it: “EVE MYLES THINKS BEING INVOLVED IN THE 50TH ANNINVERSARY OF DOCTOR WHO IS INAPPROPRIATE.”

"Now, this has come across wrong and I want to get this out that I didn’t mean it like that! What I meant was that the direction we were taking with Torchwood was very violent kind of storylines. The characters were going through certain narratives that are pretty hefty and adult. What I meant was that it’s difficult for a character to do those kind of scenes then do Doctor Who, which my niece and my nephews watch. And I would never let them watch Torchwood!

"It’s a difficult crossover. It works with Captain Jack because John does it beautifully. If I was asked it would be an absolute honour to be involved with something as huge as Doctor Who again.

"We were born from Doctor Who and we will be eternally grateful to the mothership. And I always say that and that never gets printed! If I was involved, I’m sure it’d be a wonderful thing but there’s been no phone call or no talk about it so I doubt very much that I will be involved, but I’d be honoured...
