I'm going to grab this with both hands': Karen Gillan is in 'Inadmissible Evidence', felt to be Osborne's best play

 

Whovian’s take care of their own. Doctor Who fans support Karen Gillan (Amy Pond) in her first play.  “When the Donmar Theatre’s new revival of John Osborne’s Inadmissible Evidence sold out even faster than its last production starring film star Jude Law, there was only one possible explanation: the Doctor Who Effect.” American fans can only hope the play will be available on DVD.

Best known as the Time Lord’s sexy assistant, Karen Gillan is making her West End debut in a furious rant of a play by John Osborne. ‘I’m terrified’, she reveals.

Inadmissible Evidence is a play dominated by one character, Bill Maitland, a furious, irascible middle-aged man who is having a nervous breakdown.

In the Donmar’s new production, Bill will be played by Douglas Hodge, a great stage actor but one lacking even a cameo credit from the BBC sci-fi behemoth. No, you had to look a little closer at the cast list to explain the demand for tickets.

Playing Bill’s secretary, Shirley, a character who has walked out of the play before it is half way through, is Karen Gillan, aka Amy Pond, the glamorous, gorgeous new assistant the Doctor acquired when he changed into Matt Smith two years ago.

Who-vians love Gillan. She can act, and, at 5ft 10in, she’s got enormously long legs, usually put on fine display by her penchant for wearing mini skirts (most famously Amy Pond first appeared in Doctor Who wearing a police uniform with a very short skirt indeed, but the actress herself is also rarely out of them).

Doctor Who will take over Gillan’s life once again next year — she’s in the Christmas special (already filmed) but also in the new series, to be made in 2012. But, generally, she’d love to do more. Perhaps something brand new at the Royal Court. “That would be exciting — and scary” (she frequently equates the two).
