Karen of Christmas Future

Did you get the chance to meet Karen Gillan yesterday? The Doctor Who actress appeared at the Glasgow branch of toy store Hamleys to promote the new Amy Pond figure from Character – and had a few interesting things to say.

Doctor Who star Karen Gillan at the Edinburgh International Television FestivalIt seems that Karen Gillan – who this morning is lining up alongside showrunner Steven Moffat at the Edinburgh International Television Festival for a Q&A called “Doctor Who: The Masterclass” – doesn’t know too much about the future.

When asked if she would be appearing in a third series of Doctor Who, Gillan replied:

“Who knows? I’m just taking it series by series and I’m just having fun. So, I don’t know. I have no idea.”

Meanwhile, she was happy to give a few hints about the Christmas special, which has recently finished filming with guest stars Katherine Jenkins and Sir Michael Gambon.

“We’ve finished the Christmas special so that’s all in the can and it’s a good one.

“It’s really funny but it’s also heartbreaking and you get a glimpse into Amy and Rory’s honeymoon, which is an interesting one.

“There’s a really, really scary one (monster) in the Christmas special.”

Series 6/Season 32 of Doctor Who commences shooting in September. Which seems a little late to us…
