Who's steamed up the Tardis? The Doctor shares a passionate kiss with companion Amy

Her revealing outfits have left fans in no doubt she is the most sexiest Doctor Who companion in the history of the hit science fiction drama.
Now Amy Pond is to appear in one of the most risque scenes the BBC show has ever seen as she forces herself on the Time Lord in her bedroom.
Viewers will be shocked to see Karen Gillan's character kissing the doctor played by Matt Smith as he is backed up against the side of his Tardis.

Peter Harvey SHOULD have received a prison sentence

Stuart Rafferty QC: "What he [Mr Harvey] did was grossly disproportionate to the wrong inflicted on him by the boy or other members of the class."
This is exactly my point, it was ***grossly disproportionate***, and that is why Mr Harvey should have received a prison sentence.
We have a rule of law in this country for a reason, we cannot have citizens taking the law into their own hands, especially not to physically abuse children who are suppose to be in your care.

'The Eleventh Hour' was undeniably one of the most anticipated episodes of Doctor Who ever. A brand new Doctor, a brand new companion and a brand new behind-the-scenes team, led by Steven 'The Moff' Moffat. With all eyes fixed on Upper Boat, who did the execs draft in to direct The Eleventh Doctor's debut? Step forward Who newbie Adam Smith - previously known for directing music videos by The Chemical Brothers and The Streets - who's also headed up the River Song-Weeping Angels two-parter. Ahead of this weekend's concluding half, we caught up with Adam for a chat about his time on Who.

Karen Gillan (GGG) Interview Taster. SFX.

The new SFX has a major interview with Karen Gillan, aka, Doctor Who’s Amy Pond, and here’s a special preview snippet.

Has Amy changed since you got the role or did she arrive fully formed?
“It was strange. The first audition I did I didn’t even know the character’s name or anything about her. I think they were quite specific and they knew what they wanted and were just waiting for the right girl who had all the components. But then for my second audition I got to read the first episode, so I kind of got the feel for her. It was a very scary audition, but fun. It was really weird that day, with the recall. I read with Matt and it did go really well, but I’m quite hard on myself anyway, so I was kind of in a weird daze afterwards. I didn’t really think I was going to get it, because it’s so far-fetched – it’s Doctor Who! But then I found out on the same day, which was really good. It put me out of my misery!”

How important was it for you to keep your Scottish accent for the role of Amy?
“I actually auditioned for it in both an English accent and a Scottish accent, and after I was cast they still weren’t sure if Amy was going to be English or Scottish. Obviously Steven Moffat’s Scottish, and we just decided that she could be Scottish. But it was really nice to be able to do it in my own accent, because it’s obviously something I feel more comfortable doing, and I think it really suits her.”

How would you describe Amy’s dress sense?
“I had a lot of input in how she appears physically, with hair and make-up and what she wears. I think she’s got this inner confidence and she’s this sassy girl so doesn’t have to wear baggy clothes. Maybe she can wear stuff that shows a bit of skin from time to time, because she’s got the confidence to do that. Everyone in the team and the costume designer really took on what I had to say about it, and we worked together, in collaboration.”

And do you think that is a confidence you have yourself?
“I would say Amy is more sassy than I am. Watching myself on screen is a bit cringey. It’s like hearing your voice on one of these!” [points at dictaphone]

Check out the complete interview in the new issue of SFX, on sale 5 May.

It is unclear whether the redhead (Karen Gillan aka 'GGG') is expecting a tiny timelord.

In the episode to be screened on May 15, she is clearly fed up with both the Doctor (Matt Smith) and fiancé Rory (Arthur Darvill).

New Dr Who Matt Smith reveals secret lust for Daily Lowe


NEW Time Lord Matt Smith has revealed he's wanted to Doctor Woo sexy model Daisy Lowe for YEARS.


(There is a link on the page to view 16 more photos of Daisy Lowe).


DOCTOR Who star Matt Smith hopes to make waves in the bedroom by installing a waterbed.

Matt, 27 – who has been getting cosy with model Daisy Lowe – is seeking a £2,000, top-of-the-range bed for his swanky London flat.

He asked posh Harrods store, which used to boast it could get anything for its customers – but waterbeds are off its list, so he’s still hunting.

A pal said: “Matt loves his comfort and he’s been gagging to get a waterbed into his new flat. He’s on the look-out for somewhere that sells a top quality one that will look good in his pad.

“He’s a real ladies’ man so it won’t be long before he is putting the mattress to good use.

“If lucky Daisy gets to try it out, it will ­certainly feel like the earth is moving!”

Matt, who recently split up with Brazilian singer Mayana Moura, hooked up with 21-year-old Daisy at the Coachella Festival in California last weekend.

The pair have been getting closer and closer since.

And there are even rumours that the actor has already met Daisy’s rocker dad Gavin Rossdale and his wife Gwen Stefani.

Matt’s pal added: “His life is changing hugely all the time.

“Since the new Doctor Who series started on BBC1 last month, interest in him has gone through the roof. He used to be seen as a bit of a geek who wasn’t exactly fighting off babes. Now he’s got a hot girlfriend and other girls can’t keep their hands off him. It’s amazing to see how his life has changed.”

☆☆☆ To attack the BBC is to devalue our national culture as a whole ☆☆☆

Ahead of the forthcoming election, we wanted to raise our concerns about the BBC's future. Over the past few months, leading opposition politicians have suggested that a new government should prioritise cutting the BBC's licence fee. Others have shown a cavalier attitude towards the BBC's independence, calling, for example, for the BBC to sell off Radio 1, to roll back its online activities and to get rid of the BBC's governing body, the BBC Trust.

The BBC is the most important cultural organisation in Britain and an indispensable part of our society, admired and envied throughout the world. It is right that there is a national debate about the future of the BBC. But attacking it to serve the interests of its commercial rivals would be short-sighted and threatens to devalue not just the BBC itself, but our culture as a whole. We urge people to think about the consequences of their vote for this cherished part of our national life.

Guess Who's freaked out by ghosts..

As Dr Who's side kick, she takes on aliens, vampires and even Daleks, but Karen Gillan admits she is frightened - by GHOSTS.

Karen, 22, who plays Amy Pond in the cult BBC show, said: "My mother is adamant there are ghosts in our house, which hasn't helped me. She thinks we've got a 'presence'."

The flame-haired beauty from Inverness added: "If I am at home on my own I can get quite freaked out and need to look around every few seconds."

And TV newcomer Karen admits she was never a fan of Dr Who - until she got the plum role as Matt Smith's assistant.

She said: "Mum's a fan, but I wasn't. When I was younger I watched Star Trek: Voyager, but Doctor Who passed me by."

US Torchwood remake is put on hold


Doctor Who's assistant Karen Gillan promises surprising adventures

Doctor Who actress Karen Gillan has said her character's relationship with the Time Lord will develop in a surprising way.

The 22-year-old actress stars alongside Matt Smith's new Doctor as Amy Pond, a character befriended as a child by the time traveller before he accidentally abandoned her.

After reuniting with her childhood ally the "Raggedy Doctor", Amy has proved a crucial companion for the Time Lord, helping him steer the course of a futuristic Britain and saving wartime London from the returning Daleks.

Speaking to Metro ahead of Saturday's broadcast of her fourth Doctor Who episode, Gillan said there was a "really interesting dynamic" between Amy and the Time Lord.

"There are many levels to it," she explained. "She won't be following him around like a lovesick puppy. There are some surprises ahead."

Gillan's attractiveness has frequently been mentioned in reviews of the current series and the Scottish actress said she was "flattered" but found it "very weird" to be labelled the Doctor's sexiest companion.

"Doctor Who has a long line of sexy companions, it's nothing new," she added. "I don't particularly aspire to be sexy, I just want to play the part well."

Many thanks to TOTTERS group member Simon Burnell for the new group/blog photo. I wonder how long the TARDIS sticker will remain!! Thank you sir, you are a true legend!

Over to Simon...
"I visited the Only Totters Lane in Britain (so I believe) today. Its a real quiet country lane.
I got quite excited as I approached it as I saw a Blue box in the distance (turned out to be a blue recycling bin)
Pictures of the road sign as promised.
as promised I stuck a TARDIS Sticker over the Hampshire County council Logo . Looks pretty good. Hopefully it will stay on for a long time.
I'll check up on it annually lol
Just up from the sign is what looks remarkably like a Junk Yard too. (What are the odds?)
I would have got closer but a big angry dog informed me that he'd rather I not come any closer thank you so very much."

Ten teasers about 'The Time Of Angels'

After a decidedly polarised response to 'Victory of the Daleks', all eyes are now on the next episode of Doctor Who to see where the series goes next. And 'The Time Of Angels' has a heck of a lot going for it, boasting the return of two of Moff's greatest triumphs: River Song and the Weeping Angels.

Read on for ten teasers about episode four:

1. When we meet Doctor Song, she's on the run - but she has an escape plan involving The Doctor.

2. The episode includes the caption "10,000 years later."

3. There's a Weeping Angel trapped inside the Byzantium.

4. First mention of "spoilers"? 9 minutes 27 seconds.

5. Amy: "Is River Song **** ****? ... "She's *** ****** from the ******, isn't she?"

6. There's a device that harks back to 'Silence In The Library'. Think "hey, who turned out the lights?"

7. Amy should really learn that too much TV is bad for her eyes.

8. The Doctor. Bites. Amy.

9. River: "I have pictures of *** **** *****."

10. The cliffhanger isn't the usual sort of two-parter cliffhanger we've grown accustomed to with new Who. Despite being very familiar.
