Karen Gillian Digital Spy have an interview with Karen Gillian who plays new companion Amy Pond, in series five starting next month. You can read an extract from the interview with Karen below.

Do we meet the Ponds in the series?
"You may get to meet Amy's boyfriend Rory (Arthur Darvill) in episode one, which is quite exciting. He's a nurse..."

Can we expect dark things from this series?
"Yes. Steven Moffat's writing is very scary at times and really funny at times so it's this rollercoaster. Many stories are fairytale-like and dark so lots of that to be expected."

Did any of the monsters from previous episodes scare you?
""I was very scared by the weeping angels in 'Blink'. They were very scary because they left it up to the imagination - you never actually see them do anything which is what scared me. That was a brilliant creation by Moffat."

Lis Sladen is still playing her companion character 35 years on. Do you think Amy will have that kind of longevity?
"That would be cool and I definitely wouldn't rule that out. It would be great to come back and do appearances and stuff like that but obviously it's too early to tell."
