“It was a weird, serene day where everyone was feeling it.
“We don’t film in chronological order so the last shot we filmed was me, Matt and Arthur going into the Tardis.
“Then Matt closed the door for the last time and we were in darkness.
“We hugged and started crying. It was kind of tears of happiness.
“It was a feeling of ‘Look at what we’ve done’. It was lovely.”
Karen made her Doctor Who debut as Amy in 2010, wearing a controversial policewoman’s outfit.
But she revealed she wasn’t allowed to hang on to the costume.
She said: “I didn’t get to keep any Pond stuff because everything related to Doctor Who goes into exhibitions.
“But I might have taken a little special something from the Tardis.”
she giggled when I pressed her about what it was.
Eventually, she admitted: “A pair of binoculars. They look really weird in my house, just sitting there.”
“I’m one step closer to my parents in Inverness which makes me so happy. I miss being up north so much.
“Because I’ll be based in Glasgow, I’ll be able to see them at weekends, which will be nice.”
The film’s director is John McKay, who also directed her in We’ll Take Manhattan.
Karen plays Jane Lockhart, a headstrong and passionate author of miserable fiction who suffers writer’s block on her second novel.

“I play a successful writer called Jane Lockhart,” Gillan told us. “Who writes best when she’s unhappy. She’s feeling good about her life and therefore can’t write her next novel, so her publisher Tom goes on a secret mission to make her unhappy to get the book written.”
“I literally couldn’t read it without crying,” she confessed. “It was the most highly charged read-through I’ve ever experienced. But I couldn’t have asked for a better exit. I don’t think it’ll be what people expect.”
She also shared her thoughts on the prospect of a Doctor Who movie. “I think it would be great in a franchise-y sort of way. I’d look forward to sitting down and watching it.”
But would she get involved if made an offer? “Oh, who knows. I guess you can only cross that bridge when you come to it!”
