Karen Gillan wants a word

This Saturday ShortList has big plans. Instead of enjoying the remaining dregs of the summer (like we even had one anyway), we’ll be sat in front of the TV for the brand-new series of Doctor Who, mainly because of the lovely Karen Gillan aka Doctor Who's Amy Pond.

Last year, we were lucky enough to feature a rather illuminating interview with the sci-fi pin-up. Illuminating because the delightful Gillan has succumbed to none of her profession's predilection for reticence in front of a microphone once fame comes-a-calling. But what was most revealing about our tête-à-tête was Gillan's state of dress. Or rather, state of undress. A vest and hot pants being the sum total of her adornment. So, without further ado, here are the pics, peppered, as they are, with some choice Gillan pearls of wisdom. And yes, you'll never look at a chaise longue in the same way...

Doctor Who returns on Saturday 27th August 7.10pm BBC ONE
