Stars in the Dark!

During their whirlwind tour of media outlets on Monday, Doctor Who DVD Series 6-promoting stars Matt Smith and Karen Gillan had time to have a conversation with Radio 1’s Fearne Cotton (which must have been pretty hard work…)

Naturally conversation turned to the rumours/facts about the mooted Doctor Who movie to gauge their reaction to last week’s media storm. Unsurprisingly, the news came as a bit of a surprise to the stars, who had read about the news “in the paper”! Matt Smith confessed that they wouldn’t be involved.

“I have absolutely no idea what it will be about. We’re not really anything to do with it.”

Karen Gillan, meanwhile, recalled that such rumours are nothing new.

“There’s always rumours about a Doctor Who film. I remember them saying that Johnny Depp was going to be the Doctor.”

I wonder… could this story ever go away?
