New Doctor Who co-star Karen Gillan spoke to The Observer recently, and in the interview published at the weekend she revealed a brief snippet of the story between Amy Pond and the Eleventh Doctor.
We’ve all seen the original trailer for the new series, initially made available on the BBC’s Official Doctor Who website following The End of Time – and quite clearly Amy Pond kisses the Doctor. However with River Song making at least one appearance, a fullblown Ninth/Tenth Doctor and Rose scenario looks as though it would be complicated, at the very least.
Karen Gillan gives little away when asked about the kiss, but has this to say:
“She has a love for him, a really deep love for him. But not romantic.”
There is, however, more love than that going around – bizarrely, Karen Gillan is rather taken with her own character, as revealed in an exchange about Amy Pond’s miniskirt.
I’m not sure exactly what the consequences of this might be, but it can’t be safe.
“They originally wanted to put me in trousers, but I did say I’d like to wear a skirt because â€“ you’ll understand when you watch it. Actually I think I love Amy. I’m in love with her. I want to be her.”
Um… you are her, Karen…
