The Doctor sees Amy Pond one last time...

Baldy and Baldy Say Goodbye to Doctor Who

It was indeed a most wig-tastic moment when newly-shorn Karen Gillan turned up on the TARDIS set to bid farewell to Matt Smith, whose natural hairstyle at the time wasn’t all that longer than that of his former co-star.

We refer, of course, to the nicely kept secret return of Gillan as the regenerative hallucinatory ghost of Amy Pond – interestingly, the first time in the revived series that we see a regeneration with some “trippy” aspects.

At least he didn’t call out “ADRIC!”

Says Moffat:

They’re very good wigs but they’re both wigs. Though in Karen’s case that’s her own hair.

That wig is made of her own hair, it’s just detachable now. When they cut her hair they made a wig of her own hair. Doesn’t she look lovely?

So, with wig makers kept in employment for another month, what did you think? While Matt Smith’s 50th anniversary celebratory trailer hairpiece might have looked a bit… well, like a hairpiece, the floppy locks on offer in The Time of the Doctor seemed to fare better. Meanwhile, Karen’s wig looked stunning – or did it?
