Star give hints of Doctor Who finale

Karen Gillan as Amy Pond

Doctor Who actress Karen Gillan has given a few hints of what fans can expect from the big finale of the fifth series.

Karen, who plays assistant Any Pond, said it was a weepy one and that "tissues" would be needed.

When asked to give more clues, she added: "I'm going to say the word 'horses' and that's it."

Then executive producer Piers Wenger said: "I'm going to say the word 'helmets'".

Karen went on to say what the hardest episode of filming the finale was. "The second part of the finale was the most difficult because it's a big climax for Amy and her story that's been building throughout the series," she said.

"And it just required a lot of kind of concentration and emotion."

So while there's not a HUGE amount to go on, fans will be wondering what all these titbits might mean.


Amy and Piers Wenger were talking at a special screening of Saturday's episode, called Vincent and the Doctor.

It sees the Doctor and Amy meet one of the world's most famous artists, Vincent Van Gogh, who lived in the 1800s. The episode was penned by famous film and TV writer Richard Curtis, who wrote Love Actually and loads of hit TV shows.

Piers Wenger said it was "one of the most astonishing episodes of Doctor Who certainly I've been involved in - probably one of the most important episodes ever made".
