Karen Gillan — best known right now for playing Amy Pond, the former companion of the 11th Doctor on DOCTOR WHO, but soon to be seen as the villainess in this summer’s Guardians of the Galaxy movie – has the lead role in the new sitcom SELFIE, coming to ABC this fall.

DOCTOR WHO show-runner Steven Moffat has done a lot of talking about the Peter Capaldi era being different from the Matt Smith period — and now the Grand Moff is assuring us that the 12th Doctor will be different from not just 11 but his 10th and Ninth incarnations as well, because Moffat is putting an end to all the kissing and mushy stuff that has been a staple since the show was rebooted in 2005.
Moffat told the current issue of Britain’s Radio Times:
“He’s not a human being, however much he larks around pretending he is. He is different and it’s time to stop play-acting. He’s not apologising, he’s not flirting with you -– that’s over.”
