When asked how The Doctor would change without Amy and Rory, Smith told Heat: “That’s something I’m trying to explore in the playing of him at the moment.
“I think a new companion coming in changes who he is, so hopefully there’ll be some kind of fruits in that relationship redefining him a little.”
Karen Gillan, who plays Amy said: “I think the Doctor’s going to be sad to see the Ponds leave, but he’s also going to carry on, because that’s what he’s done for the past 50 years, essentially.”
Matt Smith then commented on how Jenna Louise-Coleman had been getting on with filming: “She’s doing brilliantly. She’s actually doing night shoots as we speak, poor thing.”
