Things We Saw Today: Doctor Who’s Karen Gillan Says Goodbye On Behalf Of The Ponds

Things We Saw Today

We posted a short while ago about Karen Gillan starting on her last episode of Doctor Who. We had all the sads. Now she’s announced via her twitter account that her job is complete (it got 50+ retweets in under a minute). She’s no longer working on Doctor Who. Co-star Arthur Darvill who plays her husband Rory on the sci-fi series echoes her sentiments a short while later tweeting, “And. . . . That’s it.” Why do they torture us so?
