Doctor Who News Karen Gillan: we love her.

Karen Gillan in Not Another Happy Ending Trailer

“Once, she was The Girl Who Waited,  and now in 2013, she’s the girl you can’t wait to see in Not Another Happy Ending!”*

That’s right – the official trailer for Karen Gillan’s first major role since leaving the TARDIS (the chronologically confused Radio Times also list her as being on the show from 2008 till 2013 – bless the old girl, it’s getting its ginger haired actresses confused) is now online, and you can view it here!

In Not Another Happy Ending the stunning flame-haired actress plays Jane Lockhart, a best-selling author who is secretly in love with her publisher Thomas Duval (played by Stanley Weber).

Jane only feels creative when she is unhappy, but her recent success has left her with writer’s block. So when Duval’s career begins to flounder it’s down to him to inspire Jane to put pen to paper again by making sure she’s miserable…

Since leaving the TARDIS behind halfway through series seven of the sci-fi drama, Gillan has worked on NTSF:SD:SUV, Oculus and The List. She has also recently been cast in Marvel flick Guardians of the Galaxy.

We will be queuing up at the Kasterborous Towers Odeon to see her in spandex, but before then Not Another Happy Ending will premiere at the Edinburgh Film Festival on 30th June.

And of course, don’t miss Karen chatting to us about leaving Doctor Who in the very first Kasterborous Magazine, out now!

About the Author


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.
