Gillan on Tearful Doctor Who Farewell

Karen Gillan has spoken about filming Doctor Who for the final time.

Speaking to the Daily Record, she explained: “It was a weird, serene day where everyone was feeling it. We don’t film in chronological order so the last shot we filmed was me, Matt and Arthur going into the TARDIS. Then Matt closed the door for the last time and we were in darkness.

“We hugged and started crying. It was kind of tears of happiness. It was a feeling of ‘Look at what we’ve done’. It was lovely.”

Karen added: “I didn’t get to keep any Pond stuff because everything related to Doctor Who goes into exhibitions. But I might have taken a little special something from the TARDIS.”

She later admitted: “[It was] a pair of binoculars. They look really weird in my house, just sitting there.”

Next up for Karen is a leading role in the film, Not Another Happy Ending, which begins shooting in July.
