Doctor Who season 10 won’t come out until April 2017 and fans cannot wait to know more updates about the series. Now, Karen Gillan has come forward and spoke of her possible involvement in any future plans for the BBC1 series.
According to Comic Book, Gillan first portrayed the role of Amy Pond in the series’ fifth season. It was during the premiere episode titled The Eleventh Hour. As per the source, there were many firsts during the time she joined the franchise.
It was the first episode for Steven Moffat as the showrunner. Aside from that, it was also the debut for Matt Smith’s eleventh doctor. Therefore, Gillan’s memories in the show are pretty much special.

The earlier mentioned source added that the 29-year-old actress remained as the Doctor’s companion for two and a half seasons. She left halfway through season 7.
In December 2013, she last appeared in Christmas special titled The Time of the Doctor. It was also Smith’s last episode as the Doctor.
In line with this, Steven Moffat is also set to leave the series after the tenth installment. This is why fans are wondering if ever Gillan would make an appearance for a proper send off to her beloved showrunner.
“If they ask me, I would be back there in a shot. But I think I am more excited about seeing Pearl take over as companion, because she was amazing,” says the Guardians of the Galaxy actress.
Gillan is actually talking about Pearl Mackie. She is the actress who plays Bill, the new character that will soon be the twelfth doctor’s (Peter Capaldi) companion.
Wales Online recently reported what Mackie thinks of her role. She said, “Reading the script at the audition, I thought Bill was wicked.
“Fantastically written, cool, strong, sharp, a little bit vulnerable with a bit of geeky thrown in. I cannot wait to bring her to life, and to see how she develops through the series,” the actress added.
Furthermore, it seems like Karen Gillan has plenty on her plate these days. With Guardians of the Galaxy and Avengers: Infinity War in the line, she might have a tough time fixing her schedules for Doctor Who.
