No-One Notices Karen!

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:

“The fans are mainly men, you know, and a lot of children. It’s 24-7 for him [Matt Smith]. I get it a lot of the time when I’m on my own but not so much when I’m with him, strangely. You’d think they’d think, ‘Ooh the Doctor and his assistant’ but they just don’t notice me.”

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:

“It’s Plural Chins…There are two apparently.”

What? I dropped my monocle in my latté!

Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.
