I can just picture your face now as you read the title of this article.Â “Pirate hats are cool?” you think.Â “What might that imply?Â Could the Doctor be about to don yet another ridiculous piece of headgear for the adventure on the high seas set to take place during episode 3 of the next series of Doctor Who?”
Wrong!Â At least, it’s probably wrong.Â To our knowledge thus far, the Doctor does not adorn his head with such a triangular decoration.Â But Amy does!Â That’s right!Â This time it’ll be Karen Gillan looking “cool” in an article of clothing that’s commonly seen as… well, come to think of it, pirate hats are cool!
Holy Moly and the Daily Mail have both recently published snaps of Gillan, with the odd Matt Smith and Arthur Darvill as well, from the set of the upcoming pirate tale currently scheduled to immediately follow a two part American extravaganza.Â To be honest, there’s nothing particularly special about the gallery on Holy Moly; just a bit of Karen being trained as a swordswoman (excited gasp!), although there is a rather nice wide shot of the entire ship.Â The Mail’s small selection is definitely a must-see unless you’re an extreme spoilerphobe… let’s just say you may see Karen in full, stunning, pirate-hatted costume, swinging on a rope with a sword.Â Did I say must-see?Â Really, you don’t know what fun you’re missing!
Although you could just be incredibly patient and wait until the episode airs (impossible, right?) this spring after the first couple of episodes of Doctor Who’s return to BBC One.
