“All I wanted was for her to go out in flames of blazing glory and she definitely does that. I couldn’t have wished for a better way to go,” she said.
Gillan, who was “emotional for about two weeks” after filming finished, said she was able to pass on a few tips to her replacement Jenna-Louise Coleman before she left.
“I felt wise and mature which has never happened to me before,” Gillan said.
She went with her “gut instinct” to leave the show, adding that the decision upset her mother.
“My mum was devastated. She was like ‘No, Karen I don’t want you to leave’.”

Karen says she expects ‘there will be tears’ when people watch The Angels Take Manhattan and admits that for her, the read-through for this episode was difficult. ‘That was actually the hardest bit to do,’ she recalls, ‘just because it was such a good script, such a good exit and it was like, ‘Oh this is how it is going to happen’ – really surprising, but the best exit ever!’

The actress has moved in with parents Marie and John in Inverness after selling her plush London home.
And it’s just like old times. Karen, added: “It’s a really funny thought having all these crazy experiences on Doctor Who, then always seeming to end up back in my old childhood bedroom, with my childhood posters.
“I’ve got a Muse one, from when I was like an angsty teen. And I’ve got a Daniel O’Donnell calendar, which I thought would be really funny when I was younger, from 2004 or something.
“Then there’s loads of theatre programmes all over the ceiling. My mum’s ripped a lot of them
off, so it’s all little ragged edges and pins.
“I lie there and I am like, has all that just really happened? Or did I just imagine it?”
Karen, who has bowed out of Doctor Who after playing the Timelord’s companion Amy Pond for two-and-a-half years, filmed rom-com Not Another Happy Ending in Glasgow last month.
She was in Los Angeles yesterday for the annual Bafta LA TV Tea. And she said her future may lie in Tinseltown.
The 24-year-old said: “I think I’ll definitely end up in Glasgow. But I think I should do LA for a while. Good-quality films would be the goal for me, things that I feel passionate about.”

The plot begins a decade after a terrifying family incident left two young children orphans. Although her brother was charged with murder, Kaylie (Gillan) is convinced a haunted antique mirror is the real perpetrator and years later wants to prove that the mirror was responsible for destroying their family. Sackhoff, who stars on A&E’s Longmire, will play Marie, the mother to a younger version of Kaylie.
“I’ve got to be honest – I don’t think that I’m quite as feisty as the character. So that’s why it’s really fun doing the programme, because I get to be this person that I sort of wish I could be like, hah hah! Amy’s what I would like to be like in real life. But I’m a bit more scared of things than she is, generally.”
