Karen Gillan wants to turn Doctor Who into a musical

Karen Gillan dreams of turning ‘Doctor Who’ into a musical.
The 32-year-old actress starred in the BBC One sci-fi series as Amy Pond, who was the companion of the Eleventh Doctor (Matt Smith), and she has revealed she has an idea to take the adventures in time and space to the stage, complete with song and dance.
Speaking to the Daily Mirror newspaper, Karen said: "Doctor Who-sical, did you just say? Bravo. I like that. You know what would be cool? Combing sci-fi with a musical."
Karen’s comment comes after the ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ star admitted she wishes she could re-shoot her early ‘Doctor Who’ performances because she has learned so much more about her craft since her first episodes as Amy which aired back in 2010.
The Scottish star said: "I’d go back to the first half of the first series that I did and just redo that acting. I know a lot more about acting now … I was a wee child."
Karen has already begun planning the stage hit and would like her old on-screen husband Arthur Darvill – who played Rory Williams – to write the music. I would like to do something like that. Like go around on a spaceship and do original songs written by Arthur Darvill, because he’s really good at that."
As for the role of the Doctor, Karen has already been eyeing up her previous co-star Matt after dubbing him "the best actor ever".
