Karen Gillan Doctor WhoKaren Gillan wants her 'Doctor Who' character Amy Pond to die.

Gillan, who will return with Matt Smith to the hit series in 2012, said she doesn't want to make any return cameos after her time as the Doctor's companion is up.

"Death would be an option," Gillan said. "I don't want Amy to pop up again every so often, because for me it would take away from the big, emotional goodbye."

'Doctor Who' Star Matt Smith Previews New Episodes, Plus Lots of Intel on What's to Come

by Maureen Ryan, posted Aug 24th 2011 11:30AM
'Doctor Who' returns 9PM ET Saturday on BBC America. Finally.

It feels as though we've had to wait an eternity for the show's sixth season to recommence, and there were dozens of unanswered questions floating around by the end of 'A Good Man Goes to War,' the ripping mid-season finale that aired in June. The good news is, the show's executive producer, Steven Moffat, and star, Matt Smith, both said in recent interviews that all those big questions will be answered by the time the seventh season wraps up Oct. 1. My interview with Smith is below, and I'll post the interview with Moffat soon.

Many of the biggest 'Doctor Who' questions revolve around River Song, a.k.a. Melody Pond, who, it emerged in 'A Good Man Goes to War,' is the daughter of the Doctor's companions, Rory and Amy. Be assured that the interview with Matt Smith below doesn't contain any specific intel about what's to come. But after the interview with Smith, you'll get a River Song-style warning about "Spoilers!" which include the very interesting (and River-centric) title of the upcoming season finale.

Talking TV Podcast (Pondcast?) Talks 'Doctor Who'

by Maureen Ryan, posted Jun 14th 2011 11:30AM
A one-show podcast this time: Ryan McGee and I talk all 'Doctor Who,' all the time (well, not all the time -- we clocked in at just under an hour this week).

We talk about the new season of 'Who' as a whole, we gab about the River Song revelation and 'A Good Man Goes to War' in detail, and we speculate about what may be next for Rory, Amy and the Doctor.

Did we mention that Rory is awesome? We also love the Victorian lizard lady and her plucky companion, who should get their own spinoff now (which someone on Twitter dubbed 'Cagney and Scaly'). In any event, it was a great end to an uneven season, all of which we discuss in the 'Who'-cast.

'Doctor Who' - 'Victory of the Daleks' Recap

by Brad Trechak, posted May 1st 2010 10:03PM
Doctor Who(S05E03) They say a Doctor isn't a Doctor until he's faced down his most famous enemy, the Daleks. Every Doctor has faced them (it's even implied that Paul McGann fought them in the Time War). It's best that newbie Matt Smith got it out of the way early otherwise children would be asking "when will he fight the Daleks?"

This episode could best be called a new beginning for our favorite pepperpots. In typical indirect and obscure fashion, they try to perpetuate their race and destroy the universe, in that order. And for once, they even claim a victory over our favorite Time Lord.

Karen Gillan Faces the Challenge of 'Doctor Who'

by Nick Zaino, posted Apr 23rd 2010 1:29PM
Karen Gillan as Amy Pond on 'Doctor Who'In the season debut of 'Doctor Who,' we got a new Doctor in Matt Smith, a new writer/producer in Steven Moffat, and the Doctor got a new companion in Amy Pond, played by Scottish actress Karen Gillan. But the series and the Doctor got something a bit more in Amy, who shows sings of being a more of a challenge, more of an independent thinker than many of her predecessors.

Amy and the Doctor meet when Amy is just a child, and then several years later, after she has mythologized him for years, and felt disappointment that he has been gone for so long. Immediately, they are on strange footing. When she leaves with the Doctor, we see the wedding dress she left behind. This week, we'll get to see a it more of Amy, as she and the Doctor take the TARDIS for its first spin. We'll also get to see "Starship U.K." and some new villains, the "Smilers."

'Doctor Who' - 'The Eleventh Hour' Recap (Season Premiere)

by Brad Trechak, posted Apr 17th 2010 11:29PM
Doctor Who(S05E01) You've read the interview, and now we have the review of the new 'Who.'

Eleventh Hour. Eleventh Doctor. Ha ha. We get it.

Matt Smith comes out of the gate running. Literally. In his new regeneration, the Doctor doesn't even get time to catch his breath since he's dealing with his new companion Amy Pond as well as yet another alien that wants to destroy the Earth.

This was one of the best introductions to the Doctor ever and a strong start for the newest version of the program. I liked how Steven Moffat didn't use the old trope of post-regenerative trauma (which was used in the last regeneration to David Tennant) and simply presented Matt Smith's Doctor as a bit of a scatterbrain.
