Matt and Karen's Panel at Calgary Expo 2014: Can you guys tell us some embarrassing Arthur Darvill stories?
Matt:Arthur—there was a time in New York, I'm not going to tell you the real story here. It's a bit of a story, the real story—it's perhaps not for this environment. We were really late, weren't we, for a press thing?
Matt:And sometimes Arthur would get [imitating Arthur] quite sort of hit up, and he would be like, "GUYS, WHERE ARE YOU? WHERE ARE YOU? WHY DO I ALWAYS HAVE TO BE DAD?"
Karen:Yeah, like he screamed it, like really seriously.
Matt:And I'd just fallen in the bath, fully clothed.
(Karen laughs hysterically)
Matt:It's true. We'll leave it at that, but...
Karen:(Karen continues to laugh hysterically) I can't believe that you fell in the bath...
Karen:I'm crying with laughter. You fell in the bathtub!
Matt:I know. She was there! And I was just like (stands up and falls back into chair).
Karen:I was like, "Are you okay?"
Matt:And we were just about to leave the room, and you were just, you were just...
Matt:...on the floor, laughing at me. And then Arthur was outside getting cross cause I was soaking wet, fully clothed in the bath.

“He [Moffat] said he had no hesitation in bringing Gillan back for Smith’s last episode, saying the pair were ‘so iconic’.
He said: ‘It was just nice to bring her back, also I just thought it would be good for Matt to have her on set.’”—Moffat talking about Karen’s wig in the Daily Mail (via mattandkaz)
I never ever considered myself a sci fi geek, but the more I talk about it with people I’ve worked with, I think I am!
My mum watched Star Trek a lot and I watched it growing up so I know a lot about it. I worked with Kate Mulgrew recently, she played Captain Kathryn Janeway, the only female captain on Voyager, and I was so starstruck - that was when I realised I am actually a nerd.
I went to the dubbing of one of the Star Trek films - I went to listen to the music being recorded by the orchestra, it was the coolest thing ever. OK, yes, I’m definitely a nerd!
“I think I’m going to be in America, so I’ll probably round up all the people who like to watch Doctor Who in the area. We’ll probably watch it and drink PG Tips and eat Jammy Dodgers, if I can get them.”—Karen Gillan on the 50th Anniversary (via anotherdoctorwhofan)
