karen gillan takes up the mantle as the new Time Lords assistant she told e 24 should have to get used to being recognized by fans the thing with Doctor Who you kind of can go from obscurity to then getting this role and then you're kind of your profiles kind of comments in a way and so that's quite a strange feeling and one that I find really hard to kind of think about I'm just going to start take it as it comes I think I think that's the only way I mean how can you prepare for something like that I don't know are you already recognized on the street my people getting fan mail yeah I'm getting quite a lot of fan mail which is lovely because it's nice to know that there are lots of people out there supporting the show and them and they're rooting for me and it's been had some really lovely letter so and so ya know that has been really nice and not so much recognized on the street so I'm not not so much but people keep telling me that's going to change I don't know now of course this series depends very much on the chemistry between you and Matt was it difficult getting that right at first or did it click straightaway and well I think word with me and one of the reasons i got this rule is because they kind of worked from the offer thinking when I auditioned there was already this kind of spark with with matinee Matt Matt and I I think condom and I think that's probably the reason why it works so but I mean obviously we're always developing that relationship because it's the heart of the show I think so we're always working on that and making it better and better and any favorite moments from any of the 13 episodes of the series for you God many daily there are moments where you're just like wow what we're doing and got to be the work walking onto the TARDIS for the first the first time that was exciting because I was like right I'm doing doctor oh I mean what does Doctor Who mean to you because of course you appeared very briefly in an episode called the fires of Pompeii a couple of years ago yeah I did yeah I played a sits there in the fires of Pompeii and yeah that was very different to how it is now I remember kind of watching David Tennant and Catherine Tate who are lovely and I'm just watching them and their relationship and just sort of it was a joy to watch and now I'm kind of doing and that's really strange to be coming back I never thought I would I mean I was assisting mhm in Rome so this doctor why not

Karen has to go from ordinary obscure fabulously sexy girl to famous fabulously sexy girl. I think she can handle it.

Goodness, she's a sweetheart, she's gorgeous, and she isn't orange and fake-tanned and painted with makeup and breast implants. It goes to show how pretty a girl can be without watermelons on her chest. (: I absolutely love her… I wish there would be a closer relationship between them. <33

I can't even define how much I love her. The things I would do to her don't even have NAMES yet.
May I also point out how fucking adorable it is that she's leaning down the whole interview, 'cause she's so tall? ^.^

She is sooo cute! I love that she keeps on babbling, you can really tell that she is proud, excited over where she's at.

@MrSupaAli Casting isn't about 'representing minorities' it's about finding the best person for the part. If it just so happens that both the companion and the doctor are played by white British people this series then so what? People shouldn't be given preferable treatment due to their race unless the character they are auditioning for is particularly defined by their race (e.g a character who has suffered racism).

@jamesf177 She's definitely beautiful, but to say the sexiest woman in the world is kind of an exaggeration. When I was younger I used to say things like that about women, but as I've gotten older, I've realized that there are so many different beautiful women of so many different races, body types, and personalities, it's impossible to classify just one as the true sexiest.

are bbc now seeking to represent a new minority? Gingers?

Why no Asian (preferably Pakistani)assistant to the doctor? or asian actor considered for Dr Who?

I think Karen Gillan will be a good new companion for the Doctor, but I think she's a little too racy… not sort of the calmness of Martha……. let's hope for the best and good luck both Karen Gillan and Matt Smith!

Dude! She is quite possibly the sexiest woman in the world, ever!

Really great to see a girl with pale skin, not plastered in make-up until she's orange. Loving the ginger hair.

Karen Gillan is so amazing and in my mind the HOTTEST companion in Doctor Who history. The red hair and Scottish accent just do it for me and from what i have seen so far i can tell she is going to be so Brill!

Did he, I've never seen any of his eps. All I've seen r some clips and Dimensions in Time. I'm hoping to properly start watching all the 63-89 episodes of Dr Who someday, so far I've seen the 3 Drs, the 5 Drs, Revenge of the Cybermen and Genesis of the Daleks

will she have a scottish accent in the show. The doctor hasn't had many scottish companions, I think 2nd Dr had Jamie, but Tennant was Scottish but didn't get to use the accent

Karen Gillian is funny in that shes like Ageyman and Tate i.e. ginger and had a minor role in 1 ep and bcam the main companion later. BTW shes is proper hot. Lol in the news titles 'Matt Smith is the Eleventh Doctor', yeah I think we figured that out by now
