It's the news most have been expecting but it's nice to get it confirmed as BBC Worldwide have announced that Karen Gillan will be joining Matt Smith and Arthur Darvill at the Official Doctor Who Convention on 24 and 25 March 2012.
Karen said: "“I'm really looking forward to the Convention and meeting all of the wonderful Doctor Who fans!”
It's certainly shaping up to be something rather special. As the press release says:
The Convention brings the makers of the Doctor Who together for a full day, in-depth event designed to reveal the inner workings of the series. On the main stage live pyrotechnic demonstrations will thrill attendees, while in detailed prosthetics masterclasses fans will see a monster made flesh in front of their eyes. Throughout these sessions the secrets of their craft will be revealed by masters of the trade including Danny Hargreaves, SFX Supervisor and Neill Gorton co-director of Millennium FX, Europe’s leading supplier of cutting edge prosthetics, animatronics and special make-up FX.
