Karen Gillan Plays Away

Karen Gillan is branching out from the world of Doctor Who to star in a West End play called Inadmissible Evidence.

The revival of John Osborne’s 1964 work will open in October in the Donmar Warehouse.

Appearing alongside Douglas Hodge, Karen will play his character’s secretary. The play revolves around a middle aged solicitor who is bored of his life, his family and everything he does. As the piece progresses, you discover how cruel and nasty this man has become due to the trappings he is surrounded by.

Karen Gillan has recently started to get more and more work outside of her role in Doctor Who. This is hardly surprising as she is a great actress but a question comes to the front of the mind: how long do we have left with Amy Pond?

It certainly would be a shame to see Karen go but at the same time, that’s the nature of the show that we love. Friends come and go but are never forgotten. Hopefully, Gillan will stay around up to the show’s fiftieth anniversary in 2013, which is technically only one more series for her.

More details of Karen’s play will be posted as they become available.
