Gillan Will Welcome New Companion
Karen Gillan has said she will welcome the next Doctor Who companion “with open arms” when her time is up on the show.
Speaking on Graham Norton’s Radio 2 show yesterday, she said: “I know the time is going to come when Rory and Amy have to leave. It’s inevitable and that will make me really, really sad. But that’s the nature of the show and what’s so good about it. What keeps it exciting is the fact that it’s reinvented all the time with new people. I think that’s a really great part of the show, so I will welcome the new companion with open arms.
“I don’t know what type of companion [the Doctor] would have next.”
Gillan also said her future was still “up in the air,” adding “I know that I’m going to be coming back, but I’m not sure when.”
