Here we are again, the start of the end.
It would appear that the new Doctor Who production team loves anagrams as much as Russell T Davies. Shit.
How do we know this information? From whence did the revelation come? Well, blame The Guardian – which it seems is the hot place for Doctor Who info these days – they’ve got an interview with Karen Gillan and in it she describes the audition process and her recall, which is where the anagram nonsense comes to light.
Then I got the recall, the second audition. That was when I started sweating. This huge thing. And it was so secretive I couldn’t even tell BBC reception where I was going, had to pretend it was for something called Panic Moon, which is an anagram of companion.
Panic Moon? Jesus.
Let’s hope it’s just for the audition process and they abandon it in the show, huh?
Still at least a bit of hope comes from the fact that young Gillan admits that she’s not a huge follower of Doctor Who. This can only be a good thing after all who wants her trying to be all cow-eyed like Billie Piper or dim like Catherine Tate?
