Doctor Who filming in New York – new pictures

See Matt Smith and Steven Moffat, plus a glimpse of Karen Gillan, as Amy and Rory's farewell episode takes shape...


Matt Smith, Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill have been filming what is thought to be Amy and Rory’s last episode of Doctor Who in New York this week, and we have a few candid snaps from their Central Park location.


A pensive-looking Smith (above) can be seen sitting on a bench – perhaps in character, perhaps preparing himself for a scene – and then in conversation with Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat (left).

Karen Gillan seemed to be enjoying herself on set, sharing a joke with members of the crew, and snapping a photo of her own with Matt Smith, which she posted on her brand-new Twitter account @KarenGillan2 last night (Gillan joined the social networking site at around 8pm, and already has over 50,000 followers).


Doctor Who is set to return for series seven this autumn, with Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill thought to be bidding farewell in episode five – which Moffat has called “quite heartbreaking” – before new companion Jenna-Louise Coleman makes her debut in the Christmas special.
