Karen Gillan (Amy Pond) shaves her head for Guardians of the Galaxy:
Matt Smith (the 11th Doctor, as if you didn’t know) was a sport and did the ice bucket challenge too. He’s also nominated Karen Gillan (Amy Pond), so we may have that to look forward to soon:
On a side note, I can’t believe he had trouble getting someone to hug him!
Casting rumors make the rounds every so often, so I don’t put a lot of stock in them. The current rumor is that Jenna Coleman (Clara Oswald) will be leaving the case of Doctor Who at Christmas. My understanding is that it was The Mirror that broke the story, but I’m not putting in much stock of it being true.
However, the idea has been gaining momentum, for several reasons. Clara’s main draw was that she was “The Impossible Girl”. With that story arc complete, she’s served her purpose. How much more can be done with her without it feeling as if she’s dragging on. Companion roles typically aren’t as long as a Doctor’s role. There are also rumors swirling around that Peter Capaldi may only do one season or two seasons. If Coleman were to leave at Christmas, the Doctor would be without his usual companion (which is the norm) and then could get a new one before regenerating. The other thing that’s been making people talk is Coleman’s Twitter account. She’s been a little active on there lately, and Karen Gillan (Amy Pond) became active on Twitter right around the time that she left Doctor Who.
Draw your own conclusions. For me, it’s more of a wait and see approach. Opinions?

She sure doesn’t look like Amy Pond here…
I had to watch them twice and I still don’t quite understand!
I’ve been out last week rounding up some cool 11th Doctor stuff. I thought I’d start with Matt Smith since he was our most recent, and I wanted to do this with him before he was overshadowed by Peter Capaldi.
First up, a super cool clock featuring Amy Pond and the 11th Doctor:
Next, since Comicon is coming up, the Green Jacket:
If you’re like me and prefer the classic tweed, this is a better option (plus, it’s on sale right now)
And, of course, the bow tie to go with it. (Note that the suspenders are also available):
And one last one, in case you’re like me and aren’t able to find an excuse to cosplay. A T-Shirt!
