First Unseen Photo of Matt and Karen

Can you believe it’s been four whole years since we first got a publicity shot of the Eleventh Doctor and Amy Pond?

The well-known photo is of the pair falling through the time vortex, surrounded by a bevvy of monsters, including The Beast Below‘s Smilers, a Weeping Angel and a Dalek. But Karen Gillan tweeted a lovely photo: the first real test shot of them, looking fresh-faced and, frankly, cute…

Awwww. I know! Look at them, before Trenzalore; before the Impossible Girl; before the Teselecta; before the Silence; before the Pandorica opened; before the crack in time; before fish fingers and custard, even…

Amy’s garb is a slight variation of what she wore in The Time of Angels/Flesh and Stone, the first storyline the pair filmed, fact fans.

Four Years. Four Years. Can you believe it? And can you believe it’s all over…?

    Blimey, Matt Smith looks so young in this. How three years have aged him!
