⚠️ This is an old post

It's possibly been exported and imported from at least three different blogging platforms over the years. That probably means, at best, there are broken images and links. If the post is technical in nature, any advice is probably out of date and irrelevant. Or it is really old, it was the wafflings of a teenager with too much time on his hands working out what blogging is… If it is the latter I would probably cringe if I re-read it. But it's here because it's part of my past, not my present.

You've been warned! Onwards…

News has hit the tubes today that Karen Gillan has been cast alongside Matt Smith in next years series of Doctor Who. As with Freema Agyeman she was given the role having being cast in a smaller role earlier in the previous series in Fires Of Pompeii as a soothsayer.

As with Matt Smith, she is relatively unknown having only had a couple of minor roles in TV before and leading up to the new series of Doctor Who, however it is a logical decision seeing as casting a well known actress for the role would probably of lessened the impact of Matt Smith as the Doctor.

As of yet Gillan’s character doesn’t have a name or a back story yet, however no doubt that will be revealed overtime!
