Former Doctor Who star Karen Gillan has told Yahoo Movies UK that fans of the show are more passionate than those of Marvel!
Despite the crossover between the two universes (which Karen is probably as unaware of as most of you reading this), the actress – currently promoting romcom Not Another Happy Ending but taking questions on her super-villain role in Guardians of the Galaxy – nevertheless risked the ire of the Excelsior crowd when she declared:
’Doctor Who’ is like the mother of all sci-fi!
This is why we love her.
It’s being going for 50 years, it’s the longest running sci-fi show in the world and people are absolutely passionate – they have this sense of ownership over it. It’s actually incredible to witness.
Karen is also disappointed that she knows nothing about The Day of the Doctor.
I’m going to be watching like everybody else. I don’t know what’s in it. Nobody’s told me… I feel like I have a right to know these things! Apparently not though.
