Doctor Who star Karen Gillan has discussed her impending exit from the show.

The actress told talkshow host Graham Norton that she had known her character Amy Pond would depart the sci-fi drama "for ages".

In an appearance to be aired on BBC One tonight (January 6), Gillan said: "It's such a massive relief that [the news] is out and I can speak freely about it."

She added: "I'm back next year for a few episodes but it's not actually confirmed when I go."

Gillan also claimed that she is uncertain how Amy will be written out of the show and did not rule out the possibility of an on-screen death.

"I don't know, it could be possible," she admitted.

Doctor Who actor Matt Smith also appeared on The Graham Norton Show late last year and said that he will "miss" Gillan.

"She's my best mate," he said. "But there comes a time when a story concludes, and the essence of the show is that it constantly reinvents itself."

Doctor Who is expected to return to BBC One in late 2012. The Graham Norton Show - featuring Gillan, Sherlock star Martin Freeman, Hollywood actor Gerard Butler and musician Noel Gallagher - will air tonight at 10.35pm on BBC One.
