Everyone’s favourite red head has openly declared that Matt Smith will always be the Doctor to her. Chatting recently on the promotion trail for her movie Not Another Happy Ending, Karen opined the departure of the Eleventh Doctor.
“It’s weird that he’s leaving, because to me he is the Doctor and he always will be. But I’m biased, I guess!”
Karen, who played companion Amy Pond for two years opposite Matt Smith, also revealed that she has accepted the fact that she is a nerd.
I never ever considered myself a sci fi geek, but the more I talk about it with people I’ve worked with, I think I am!…OK, yes, I’m definitely a nerd!
The former Pond also commented on the casting of Matt’s replacement, Peter Capaldi, saying that she felt the casting was amazing and that Capaldi would bring a very different feel to the Doctor.
A lot of people associate him with Malcolm Tucker who’s very grumpy, but that could work for the Doctor.
The news of Karen’s feelings for her Doctor comes as no real surprise I suppose, we all have a special bond to our first Doctor, for me it’s Sylvester McCoy, for my son it’s David Tennant and my wife has Eccleston. So it will also be true for companions; Fraser Hines and Pat Troughton, Katy Manning and Jon Pertwee.
Their Doctor will always be THE Doctor.
So who is your Doctor? Is your favourite different from your first? Let us know below and share those memories.
