With Doctor Who returning to BBC One for the second half of Series 6 this Saturday, there’s a lot of interviews flitting about with the cast and crew revealing their thoughts on the episodes and giving hints and spoilers of what’s to come…
So with that in mind, you probably think that you have read all there is to read on Doctor Who recently; but have you? Just like our beloved show, there’s always more to talk about even when you think that there isn’t. Website IGN.com recently caught up with Karen Gillan after her manic Comic-Con appearance and the actress was able to give a few insights as to what she thought of recent events in the world of Doctor Who.
One such reaction is that of her finding out that she’s the mother of River Song:
“Little did we know when we saw that wedding dress hanging in Amy’s bedroom in the first episode that that wedding was going to inevitably going to lead to the birth of River Song. It’s mad!”
Karen also confirmed the return of one of the wonderful actors from Series 5 as well:
“We go back and see Amy as a little girl. We see her as a 16 year old teenager and then we see how she and Rory get together around 18. The little girl is played by my cousin, who played young Amy in the first episode, and then I got to play a 16 year old and an 18 year old Amy – through the ages!”
But what about the rest of the series? Does she have a favourite episode, what can we expect from the next six weeks? Gillan, answering candidly, tells all:
“I’m really excited about episode nine, because it involves children’s toys – really creepy ones! Episode ten is really exciting for me, because I got to play an older version of Amy in it, so that’s really interesting. That was a really exciting one for me. It’s called The Girl Who Waited. And the finale… There’s a massive twist.”
Looks like there’s more and more to come then anyone can expect!
Doctor Who returns tonight (hurrah!) on BBC One and BBC HD at 7.10 pm and on BBC America at 9/8 c.
