Sounds like he’s already familiar with Peter Capaldi’s work! Check out the new trailer for Doctor Who‘s upcoming eighth season below:

'Doctor Who' alum Karen Gillan to star in ABC pilot 'Selfie'

Doctor Who fans, your prayers (to the Time Lord?) have been answered: Karen Gillan could be coming back to TV.

EW has learned that the former Doctor companion has been cast as the lead in the ABC pilot Selfie, from Suburgatory creator Emily Kapnek.

The single-cam comedy, said to be inspired by My Fair Lady, centers on a self-obsessed 20-something woman named Eliza Dooley (Gillan), who is more concerned with “likes” than being liked. In the pilot, a video of her very public and humiliating breakup goes viral and she enlists the help of a marketing expert at her company to help repair her tarnished image.

The announcement of the casting comes on the heels of the release of the well-received first teaser for Guardians of the Galaxy, in which Gillan appears as blue-skinned alien Nebula.

'Doctor Who' special Christmas episode: What did you think about Matt Smith's final show?

doctor-who-christmas-special.jpg

Doctor Who executive producer Steven Moffat is always keen to point out that the now 50-year-old sci-fi show is at heart an easy-to-understand saga. But the wily scribe has no problem with having his lead character remind fans — or explain to newcomers — just what the bloody hell the show is all about. Take, for example, the point in tonight’s special Christmas episode, “The Time of the Doctor,” when Matt Smith’s semi-titular, two-hearted hero introduced himself to a couple of strangers thusly: “I’m the Doctor. I’m a Time Lord from the planet Gallifrey. I stole a time machine and ran away and I’ve been flouting the principal law of my own people ever since!”

'Doctor Who' Christmas Special: Watch the trailer for Matt Smith's swan song

We’re just one week away from Christmas. Which means — more importantly — we’re just one week away from the Doctor Who Christmas Special on BBC America. This particularly eventful yuletide episode will see the final appearance by current Doctor Matt Smith, who will presumably regenerate into Peter Capaldi, as must all British citizens eventually.
