There’s not much hope for the rest of us ‘homely’ lot when leggy, fiery haired sexpots don’t get noticed these days.
Karen Gillan has told the Daily Express that she gets almost no attention from Doctor Who fans she passes in the streets:
â€œThe fans are mainly men, you know, and a lot of children. Itâ€™s 24-7 for him [Matt Smith]. I get it a lot of the time when Iâ€™m on my own but not so much when Iâ€™m with him, strangely. Youâ€™d think theyâ€™d think, â€˜Ooh the Doctor and his assistantâ€™ but they just donâ€™t notice me.â€
I’d like to think that it’s because Doctor Who fans are nothing but distinguished gentlemen who can often be seen riding in Hackney carriages wearing fine threads and monocles – rather than just common or garden shy nerds.
Her co-star and street walking partner Matt Smith has also given Miss Gillan a rather unflattering nickname:
â€œItâ€™s Plural Chins…There are two apparently.â€
What? I dropped my monocle in my lattÃ©!
