Some quick links:
+ I would like to bring you the news that there's going to be an Inspector Spacetime web series. AMAZING.
+ Reminder: there are some great prompts for the currently very lonely Who/Trek crossover fest.
+ This interview with Karen Gillan re. series seven is pretty great, particularly this extract:
IGN TV: How did you come to the decision that this coming season of Doctor Who would be your last?
Karen Gillan: Actually, I called [executive producer/showrunner] Steven Moffat and arranged the dinner and then basically told him roughly when I wanted to go. He told me where the story was at and where it was going and then we kind of together came up with it. So it was really pleasant, actually. We had a lovely dinner and just kind of discussed what we both want and what's going to happen and then came to the decision. That was ages ago, so I've known for ages!
IGN: Why did you think it was getting to be the right time?
Gillan: I wanted to go on a high. Also, Steven Moffat comes up with endless, amazing ideas anyway, but I wanted to make sure that I went on a high when the character was at her prime. There's just something quite nice and appealing about that to me. I don't know… It just felt right! I like to go on instinct.
Doctor Who: Casting the Next Companion
IGN: You can't say how many more episodes you'll be in…
Gillan: I'm not allowed to say! But I know they're going to be damn good. It's so exciting.
IGN: So Steven's told you how she's going to leave?
Gillan: I think it's the best ever. I can't say anything, but oh god, I'm dying to say something!
IGN: Are there certain things you'd like to see happen, as far as closure for her?
Gillan: I want to see her go with everything that she wants, because initially, when we met her, she was just seeking what she wants, you know what I mean? And she was kind of in this lost, transitional period, where she didn't have a stable life. So I just want to see her get what she wants.
What a coincidence, Karen, that's what I want too! So I will keep rereading this interview every time I start fretting. Mostly I feel that I may as well assume everything's going to be fine, because if it turns out it isn't, worrying all this time won't make that any better! So I shall just enjoy the rest of the time of the Ponds as companions and *hopefully* be very happy with how it all wraps up.
