Series 5 tidbits from The Sun newspaper

January 18th, 2010

matt-karen-tennant-suit-octoberAccording to a report in The Sun, Amy Pond will be working as a kissogram when she is introduced at the start of the new series.

Filming pictures originally suggested that the Doctor’s new companion, played by Karen Gillan, was to be a policewoman, however, as we’ve come to expect by now, nothing in Doctor Who is ever as it seems, as the tabloid today claims that her uniform is actually a fancy dress costume!

“Everyone thinks she is this prim and proper policewoman, however it’s going to be revealed early on that she works as a kissogram,” a source told the newspaper. “It’s going to be a bit of a shock for the fans, but I think they’re going to enjoy it. Amy Pond’s a really strong character and Karen is great in the role.”

They added: “Steven Moffat’s an edgier writer and the show is going in an exciting new direction.” Stay tuned!

    Absolute rubbish. I think the Sun picked this up from the kiss in the trailer. Thats it. I can’t stand the Sun.

    This rumour has been doing the rounds for a while when Eagle Eye fans noticed her costume wasnt 100% compliant with official Police Uniform (see Torchwood, where they get it right).

    Saying that, if anyone wants to save up for my birthday… hee hee

    The Media and Internet is always full of speculation. Take the new series at face value. I thought she looked like some kind of porn star or stripper. Not sure about the name though, Amy Pond? Whats that about!

    Load of rubbish. Like they really would introduce such an adult form of work to a kids audience. “When I grow up I wanna kiss loads of boys like Amy Pond!”…not the best example is it :O

    Exactly. Besides, Karen basically confirmed that Amy was a policewoman in the DWM #417 interview, with the mini-skirt being a personal choice.

    I also hate The Sun. I can almost guarnatee they will be the ones to instigate some sort of “backlash” when the series returns. They are utterly predictable.

    The Sun are known for their false rumours and so-called “sources”. If you look back over articles for Seasons gone by, there are a lot of things that were going to be happening that never did.

    In that case, completely hypothetically speaking, it would be very bad to start Season 5 with that kind of character anyway. Firstly, you have to explain to younger people what a kissogram is and secondly, I think it would make the character of Amy Pond, as the next companion of The Doctor, someone who the audience would start out disrespecting, if not the audience generally, then certainly me.

    Still, as others have said, rumours are going to be flying about until the beginning of Season 5 a bit later this year, we can only wait and see for ourselves what happens.

    @ JC

    Thats true. The sun have always got it wrong with dr who news since the series came back. At one point they reported Kylie was going to be a cyberwoman and billie piper would appear in the runaway bride. whoever their source is is not that reliable

    Actually it doesn’t really matter as the Sun has got the publicity they want, otherwise this discussion would not be taking place.
