The Look of Amy Pond

Fashionista and soon to be former companion Karen Gillan has been sharing the stories behind the look of Amy Pond in this video from EntertainmentWise.

For the Doctor it was question marks on the collar but for Amy Pond it’s was an on-going organic process towards the moment a ‘look’ became a costume.

Firstly, there was that skirt sparking the kind of cultural debate on moral decency and children’s television that was about as close to reality as that particular piece of fashion was to Gillan’s knees.

It was modern, confident and instinctive – all the things Amy embodies and that we leach upon. To the wider world it was about something, to Amy, It was just about right.

Then there was the tastefully distressed bomber jacket – a nod to her adventurous spirit that lead to series six’s tomboyish jeans and check-shirts; a more practical, ready for action Amy than Series Five’s counterpart.

Taking ‘hours and hours and hours’ to nail the look of Amy Gillan’s input was crucial in getting through to her persona:

“I think it’s one of the most important things to capture the costume, it says a lot about the person and the character.”

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.
