Be warned, should anyone be reading this while laboring under the misapprehension that Karen Gillan is an English rose, unspoiled by unladylike desires and poor lifestyle choices, this trailer may be a rather brutal way to have those preconceptions overturned.

Still the sight of Amy Pond carrying two dripping sickbags through an airplane is one that does linger in the mind somewhat.

That accent is going to take some getting used to, too…
