UK tabloid the Mirror – who have been issuing special mini editions of Doctor Who Adventures recently with some of the poorest online advertising copy on earth – featured some quotes from the latest DWA today as Karen Gillan revealed her mum is a Whovian!
All of which makes light of Ms Gillan’s fathers earlier comments (“itâ€™s all a big secret“)- they want to keep a lid on things so that Mrs Gillan doesn’t descend on Cardiff with her camera ready for behind the scenes snaps for the online forums!
“I really wanted to tell my parents but I thought it wasn’t a good idea as my mum is a huge fan.
“I didn’t want to drop that bomb on her and she’d then have to keep it secret.
“So I waited until it was publicly announced to go up to Inverness to tell her.”
It’s always best to keep mum’s close by when big announcements are being made, of course. A valuable life lesson from the Eleventh Doctor’s as yet unnamed companion.
