Casting News: Doctor Who

Published on June 1st, 2009

As we head to the end of David Tennant’s stint as the 10th Doctor, all eyes are on Matt Smith stepping up as the 11th Doctor, and his new assistant… Karen Gillan. The relatively unknown 21 year old Scottish actress previously appeared in the Doctor Who story Fires of Pompei as the fortune telling daughter.


This will be her highest profile role to date. In an interview with the BBC new chief of DW, Steven Moffat, he described her as “”funny, and clever, and gorgeous, and sexy… or Scottish, which is the quick way of saying it… A generation of little girls will want to be her. And a generation of little boys will want them to be her too.”
