Karen Gillan: 'I've had best years of my life on Doctor Who' - video

By and Chris Allen
Karen Gillan claimed backstage at the National Television Awards that she has had the "best years of [her] life" working on Doctor Who.


Gillan, who is leaving the BBC One sci-fi hit during the next series, picked up the 'Drama Performance - Female' gong at the NTAs last night (January 25).

Speaking in the press room after her victory, the actress insisted that she had no regrets about her decision to depart the franchise.

"I don't regret it, but there is a huge part of me that is so sad to be going," said Gillan.

"I can say honestly I've had the best years of my life on this show and I'm not sure if I'll ever have this much fun again. I really sad to be going."

Earlier in the evening, Matt Smith, who won the 'Drama Performance - Male' accolade, revealed that he has "no plans to leave" Doctor Who in the near future.

Gillan can be seen playing model Jean Shrimpton in We'll Take Manhattan tonight (January 26) at 9pm on BBC Four.
