Karen Gillan talks Who finale
Karen Gillan has revealed that she cried when she read the Doctor Who finale. The first part of the finale, ‘The Pandorica Opens’, will air on Saturday and Gillan explained that it is much more “action-packed” than the second instalment.
“Both parts are very, very different, which is cool,” she told PA. “Episode 12, the first part, is kind of quite action-packed and there are a few revelations in there and things. The story is slowly starting to make more and more sense and that’s quite satisfying, I think.”
Gillan added that she became emotional when she read the final episode of the series.
“I cried a lot when I read it,” she confessed. “So hopefully people cry when they watch it because it is sad. Yeah, it’s emotional but uplifting and great.”
She has also promised “revelations” in the upcoming Doctor Who series finale and that the two-parter resolves a lot of unfinished business from the past eleven episodes, especially for her character Amy Pond.
“There may be cracks in time and space involved. There’s a lot of loose ends being tied up and things being explained and revelations.”
Matt Smith added: “Let’s just say that The Doctor’s up against it. He’s as up against it as I’ve ever seen. So whether that be a Dalek, or a Cyberman, or a Silurian. Who knows?
“I think they’re certainly two of our most ambitious episodes – they’re certainly the most accomplished. I think Steven [Moffat’s] writing has somehow got better… It’s everything that Doctor Who should be and could be when it’s firing on all cylinders.”
Gillan also officially confirmed that her character will be “coming back” to “do it all over again” when the show returns in 2011.
