According to both the Telegraph and the Daily Mail, Doctor Who fans are in for a shock this evening when Amy Pond (Karen Gillan) gets flirty with the Doctor (Matt Smith). While she might not strip off (although the Daily Mail preview disc viewer evidently thinks she is about to) both papers suggest there will be complaints about the following exchange, which takes place after the Doctor takes Amy home.
The flirty companion tells the show’s hero that she has been thinking: ‘About what I want. About who I want. You know what I mean.’
After he fails to get the hint, she then tells him ‘Doctor in a word. In one very simple word even you can understand…’ before she jumps on top of him on the bed.
He yells at her: ‘You’re getting married in the morning.’
Amy replies: ‘Well, the morning is a long time away. What are you going to do about that?’
The stunned Doctor makes his escape to the other side of the room where the Tardis is parked, telling her: ‘Amy listen to me I am 907 years old do you understand what that means?’
Amy: ‘It’s been a while.’
When he tells her the relationship could never work, she replies: ‘You are sweet doctor, but I really wasn’t suggesting anything quite so long term.’
Then as if he has come to some revelation he says: ‘I don’t know why, I have no idea, but quite possibly the single most important thing in the history of the universe is that I get you sorted out right now’
In a clear innuendo she replies: ‘That’s what I have been trying to tell you.’
Of course, it isn’t known exactly what the result of this exchange will be, or even if Amy Pond’s behaviour is the result of something else, possibly a wider storyline by genius showrunner Steven Moffat.
