Here, Matt Smith talks about the recently-announced bombshell that beloved companion Karen Gillan (Amy Pond) will be leaving the series next year. As Matt says, “I’ll miss Karen, she’s one of my best mates… but she’s a firecracker!”
Then, Graham dares him to kick a football around on the stage. Forget traveling all of time and space, can he handle the pressure? And can Graham actually throw a football?!
Responding to Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill’s departure from Doctor Who, Matt Smith has reassured fans that he’s not planning on leaving any time soon.
Smith said on The Graham Norton Show: “I am very happy to stay. I love it and love making the show.”
Smith added he will miss Gillan but the show must go on: “I’ll miss Karen because she’s my best mate. She’s mad as a box of cats but she’s a firecracker!”
Adding: “There comes a time when a story reaches its conclusion and the essence of the show is that it constantly reinvents itself”
