One thing is for sure – the recent press launch for The Eleventh Hour has confirmed that the new stars of Doctor Who have a great working relationship. Either that or we’re using any excuse to use images of Karen Gillan.
When Matt Smith was asked by one journalist at the event if Karen Gillan’s Amy Pond was the sexiest ever Doctor Who assistant (and I promise, we weren’t there) he responded with a quick “Yes!” before adding:
“Categorically, she is. Look at her. She’s a remarkable specimen.”
It’s a superb response – one that I would love to have seen in person just to see the expression on the face of the Amy Pond actress.
“A remarkable specimen?” she said. “Do you use that as a chat-up line?”
Matt Smith might well use that as a chat-up line; he might even get away with it now that he’s on the cusp of being recognized as the biggest star on British TV. That didn’t stop Ms Gillan, from pointing out that perhaps the star of Doctor Who is embracing the role a little bit too much…
“You sound like an old man. You have an old man’s vocabulary.”
