Amy and the Doctor kiss in Flesh and Stone

Matt Banned From Dating Co-Stars

It’s hard not to imagine a cardigan wearing Moffat, pipe in hand, perching himself on Matt Smith’s bed; sharing that special wisdom that age and a childhood reading Doctor Who annuals can bring: ‘the Doctor doesn’t date his companion!’

Amy and the Doctor kiss in Flesh and Stone

Sadly, this never happened in real life.

It’s a conversation best kept between man and boy and in that spirit Matt Smith announced to the gathered press at the BFI screening of Asylum of the Daleks that Moffat banned him from dating his co-stars.

As reported in The Mirror (with additional winks and elbow nudges from The Sun) Matt was quizzed whether or not he had ever ‘got it on’ (I’d recognise The Economist’s hard hitting questions anywhere) with Karen Gillan:

“Absolutely not, we’re professionals and that was another conversation I had with Steven…Oops, I can’t say any more about that. But she finds me repulsive in that way anyway.”

With the audience amused by his repulsiveness, it took Moffat to attempt to clarify their conversation:

“Matt, I think I may have started that talk with ‘strictly between you and I’…But it seems that was with unfounded optimism…Heavens! I plead the fifth. Can I please be extracted from this?”

He then jokingly asked the 99% of the crowd still interested in talking about Doctor Who:

“Doesn’t anyone want to know if I’m bringing the Mechanoids back? What’s wrong with you?”

Speaking for the rest of humanity the object of desire herself Karen Gillan proclaimed:

“This is so embarrassing!”
