Joivan Wade has revealed he’s up for returning to Doctor Who as Rigsy.
Wade told DS recently: “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. But I’d be up for it. I love Doctor Who, it’s wicked.”
Discussing the show’s fan base, he added: “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.”
Wade joined the cast of EastEnders earlier this year as Denise Fox’s step-son Jordan.
The 23-year-old actor also revealed that he’s been going back and watching older episodes since filming his Doctor Who appearances.
He said: “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. I liked them all for different reasons. My favourite is going to be Peter because I know him, I’ve worked with him, so as a person you connect, and I feel like Peter brings something very different to the Doctor… his experience. The way he carries himself is very different.”
The new season of Doctor Who is currently filming in Cardiff and begins on BBC One in April 2017.
