Sigh of Relief

Doctor Who stars Matt Smith and Karen Gillan apparently breathed a “big sigh of relief” with the broadcast of The Eleventh Hour last Saturday, according to reports.

Karen Gillan is Amy Pond in Doctor WhoAppearing on This Morning on ITV on Thursday, Gillan told a leery Philip Schofield:

“We were filming for nine months and you get into this bubble almost and you sort of forget that it’s actually going out on television, and it did on Saturday and we’re all breathing big sighs of relief because it seems to have gone down quite well.”

She added: “The anticipation was quite pressurising, but mostly just exciting because people care so much about it. It’s a real privilege.”

With an unusual focus on Gillan’s character from certain sections of the press who have claimed Amy Pond is “too sexy”, Karen reponded:

“She wears lots of short skirts… It’s interesting, it’s part of the plot and it’s not that bad.”

We shouldn’t ignore the way Karen Gillan describes the reaction of her mum, a Doctor Who fan herself, when Gillan revealed she had won the part of Amy Pond.

“I was allowed to tell her but decided against it, because I think she would’ve burst. She would’ve told somebody, she even has the Dalek bubble bath! But I just remember her face when I told her I got it… it was a picture, it was a amazing.”
