Karen, who plays Amy Pond in the new series, added she was surprised that the fans were taking the changes so well:
“We are all really quite taken aback at how positive it’s been, actually, we didn’t expect it to go down that well.
“Especially when the first episode came out, it was quite overwhelming actually. So I’m just thrilled. I’m really, really happy.”
Gillan went on to say that she was very much looking forward to filming Doctor Whoâ€™s new series this year:
“I can’t wait for season six. It’s going to be so much fun. And I really miss Matt and I miss the Doctor.”
