Main Doctor Who Character To Depart?

WARNING: THIS ARTICLE CONTAINS MAJOR SPOILERS.


Thanks to Doctor Who Spoilers for the article below:

Amonth ago we reported that it looked like Rory and Amy might be leaving at the end of this series as Arthur Darvill would be committed to performing in the Globe Theatre production of Doctor Faustus until 2nd October.

In an interview in this weeks What’s On TV, Karen Gillan seems to all but confirm that she has filmed her last episode:

What are you doing next?

“I am playing Jean Shrimpton in a BBC4 drama We’ll Take Manhattan but I have just literally gone from Doctor Who to that so I haven’t had a chance to sit and have a think. I actually would really like to go home to Scotland for a little while and reflect on what has happened and then decide what my next move is, but I don’t know what that is yet.”

We’ve known for a while that Gillan would be filming the BBC Four drama, We’ll Take Manhattan, but from this interview it appears that Karen will be taking some time off, rather than returning to Cardiff as we’d expect if she were appearing in the next series.

PLEASE NOTE THIS HAS NOT YET BEEN CONFIRMED BY OFFICIAL SOURCES.

Thanks to Doctor Who Spoilers and Combom for the heads up.
