Not a Love-sick Puppy

Karen Gillan looking slightly spaceyA new magazine apeparance by new Doctor Who companion Karen Gillan has seen the actress describe the relationship between Amy Pond and the Doctor in a manner which could be construed as a dig at an earlier relationship.

Gillan is appearing in a new photoshoot, this time in the fashion magazine Grazia,

‘It is fair to say she is attracted to the Doctor. But I don’t think that she’s in love with him,’ she explained.

‘She’s not this love sick puppy following him around. There is kissing.’

Now far be it from us to read too much into this, but there is a key phrase there – “love sick puppy” – that has been used countless times since 2006 to describe the relationship between the Tenth Doctor and Rose.

Whatever the case, it certainly seems as though the friendship between the Eleventh Doctor and Amy Pond is going to be something to watch – especially when he has another special lady wandering around in the background.
