She thinks her characer Gemma Foster is done for now

Suranne Jones has hinted she is "done" with Doctor Foster, in news that will disappoint many fans of the BBC One drama.

The Gentleman Jack star doesn't look likely to reprise her role for a third run after admitting she thinks that could be it for her character Gemma Foster.

When asked if the Doctor Foster chapter is closed for her, Suranne replied: "Yes. I haven’t said that before in interviews, as I tend to say: who knows?

"I loved it, I love [writer] Mike Bartlett, I love [the producers] Drama Republic.

"Series one was amazing, series two, equally, peaked at nearly ten million viewers and pushed in crazy directions. But I think Gemma’s done."

Suranne has returned for a second series of Save Me as Claire McGory, whose daughter goes missing.

But the former Coronation Street actress isn't in a hurry to star in any more dramas about missing children.

She added to Radio Times magazine: "I still vet what I read and if there was anything too harrowing, I could have said it wasn’t for me.

"I’m in no rush to do anything about missing children, and I’ve read some scripts recently.

Television drama seems to be fascinated by them, but it doesn’t hold any interest for me at the minute.

"I’m being careful about what I swap my family life for."

Suranne said: "As soon as I met Jane, I knew I wanted to tell her story from her perspective and shine a light on this amazing woman who paved the way so others in her position could succeed.

"TeamAkers cannot wait to get started on developing The Final Round, and we're thrilled to be working with Faith and the team at Lookout Point - we know it's going to make fantastic television."
