Doctor Foster’s Suranne Jones unsure about third GP visit
SURANNE Jones has said she does not yet know if she will be able to return for a third series of hit BBC drama Doctor Foster.
The actress (pictured) plays Dr Gemma Foster in the Mike Bartlett-penned drama, which was a huge success with fans across its first two series.
But pressed about whether she will reutrn for a third by Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby on ITV’s This Morning today, Suranne appeared to hesitate.
‘Oh, I don’t know — argh,’ she stalled, before explaining how busy she is with her West End stage show Frozen and new BBC One/HBO historical drama series Gentleman Jack.
She added that there might also be a second series of her new Sky Atlantic programme Save Me in the pipeline.
‘It’s a time thing,’ she said.
But Suranne was happy to speculate on where the Doctor Foster characters might be heading.
Speaking about her TV son Tom, who did a runner at the end of the last series after dad Simon’s (Bertie Carvel) suicide attempt, Suranne said: ‘I know he’s alright, he’ll be travelling somewhere, he’ll be fine for a couple of years!
‘Would you really want him to come back to those damaged parents?’
The award-winning drama received an average of 8.9 million viewers over the five episodes of series two, an increase on the consolidated average of 8.2 million from its initial series, which ran in 2015.
