Karen Gillan And Arthur Darvill On Doctor Who Exit
Duo discuss the episodes leading up to their departure from sci-fi show...
Doctor Who stars Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill have discussed the show's forthcoming seventh series and their exit from it with MTV.
The duo, who play Amy Pond and Rory Williams-Pond, are both leaving the long-running sci-fi drama in the fifth episode of the new series.
We learned yesterday that one episode will be called Dinosaurs On A Spaceship - and Amy and Arthur happily spilled a few more details about the other episodes.
Karen said: "We have five, major, epic, movie style episodes which are standalone stories, but all leading towards our departure in episode five."
And when discussing the return of the Daleks in the first episode, she said: "I've never been massively scared of them before... I like them, because they're iconic, but they've never scared me before. They did in this episode."
They joked about befriending a horse called Moonshine and singing to it for the western-themed episode A Town Called Mercy, but declined to give us a rendition of the song they made up.
Discussing their final episode, they expressed their surprise that hundreds of Doctor Who fans turned out to watch them film in New York's Central Park.
Karen explained that the production team didn't expect the throng either, saying: "Well they didn't, because there was no security!"
But they stressed that the fans were very co-operative and kept absolutely quiet while filming was taking place.
