Sorry, Donna Noble, but the Scottish accent just does it for us.
The wonderful Karen Gillan was interviewed recently by L.A. Time’s Hero Complex about what it’s like being Amy Pond, how weird it is to meet people cosplaying Amy, why season six was so freakin’ spectacular and that yes, the Ponds will be making an appearance in the Doctor Who Christmas special, “The Doctor, The Widow and The Wardrobe.”
I’m making a brief cameo appearance with Arthur Darvill in the Christmas special. Steven Moffat says it’s not Christmas without the Ponds, which is lovely.
It surely wouldn’t. The whole interview is littered with spoilers for season six so if you’re not caught up you might want to skip it. But if you are all caught it is the most delightful interview. I can’t help but read everything she says in her voice. Like this hilarious bit when Gillan recounts her weirdest interactions with fans,
Walking down the street in Comic-Con in San Diego with Matt. And then just running into the Doctor and Amy was really strange, ’cause we all stared at each other for a second, like “Whaaaat is thiiis?” and this was just on the street. It was just the weirdest thing. It was so strange. What else has happened? There was a woman in New York who proposed to me dressed as David Tennant. That was quite strange. It’s something to tell the grandkids.
Jump over to Hero Complex for the whole interview to learn more about her relationships with Rory (Arthur Darvill) and River (Alex Kingston), how it felt to be aged in “The Girl Who Waited,” and what projects she’s working on next, beside more Who.
In addition to the fantastic interview we’ve got new clips from “The Doctor, The Widow and The Wardrobe.” Huzzah! I’m really, really, really, really, really, REALLY excited for the Doctor Who Christmas special and I’m gonna bet you are too. Below are three new clips just to whet your appetite before the special airs on Christmas Day at 9pm (8pm central) on BBC America.
