Eligible Karen Gillan
An excuse to show a racy photo of new Doctor Who star Karen Gillan, or genuine news reportage? You decide – but first, take a look at this lovely photo of the leggy red head who plays Amy Pond, companion to the Eleventh Doctor…
St. Valentine’s Day on Sunday saw The Scotsman publish a list of the most eligible women from Scotland, and Gillan featured at number 22, with the number 1 spot taken by singer Lou Hickey of Codeine Velvet Club and number 2 by Susan Boyle.
Whether you’re a fan of these types of list – and frankly Susan Boyle could be the richest woman on earth, it wouldn’t make her in the slightest bit “eligible” – they do at least give websites like us the chance to admire the charms of the new Doctor Who companion.
In fact, to be honest, it all reads a bit like a Miss World presenter’s cue cards:
Karen has been described as a little bit kooky by colleagues, so the leading man in her personal life will have to come up with something inventive.
Despite what an army of Whovians will be hoping for, a Doctor Who-obsessive is probably not what she’s looking for when she clocks off.
