There’s Two Sides to Every Pond

When the Doctor bid farewell to the universe at the end of Season 5/31 he also said goodbye to Miss Amelia Pond, the little girl who waited. But what’s that you say? ‘Then whose the lanky ginger girl hanging around the TARDIS?’ Well that’s Amelia Pond too. Confused? Well imagine playing that/those parts.

Karen Gillan has been sharing a few secrets with the New Zealand Herald as Season 6/32 starts its run in “land of the long white cloud” including her approach to Amy reuniting, forgetting and then remembering the Doctor and how such a dilemma has changed her Miss Pond:

“First of all I had to put a change in there because the universe has rebooted and she now has two versions of her life in her head: one where her parents were gone and she is with the Doctor, and the other where she grew up with her parents and they met the doctor at a wedding. So that’s going to change a person.”

The upside of all this is that Amy is now no longer the overbearingly ‘fiesty’ character of old:

“But also, last year, Amy always had these walls up so she came across as feisty, but you’ll see those walls come down and see her vulnerable side. Hopefully that’s what I’ve done anyway.

It is going deeper and deeper with Amy and I’m having to explore new territory. There was one thing in the series that was just so emotional, which has never happened to me, so I had to go and talk to people it had happened to.”

And now having gained a new insight into her character Gillan is leaving. Well she’s has been taking about her options in the future away from the TARDIS. But she’s not leaving…yet…maybe…:

“I know Amy’s time has to come to an end at some point, and I’m sure she’ll get a good send-off when it does.”

Speculation starting in 3…2…1



About

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.
