I’ve decided to start a brand new segment on this blog entitled This Week’s Crush (TWC), basically as an excuse to be able to post photos of gorgeous women.
So, in honour of the Season Opener of Doctor Who premiering this week, we have the smart, sassy, opinionated and gorgeous Amy Pond who is played by the equally gorgeous and occasionally adorably dorky Karen Gillan.
What I love about Amy Pond is not only is she smart enough to outwit the Doctor from time to time but she is not afraid of her sexuality and is more than happy to use it if it will give her an advantage. This is one empowered modern woman and TV really needs more of them.
Then there is her adorable Scottish accent, which I’m so glad that producers of Doctor Who let her keep and in fact have made somewhat a running joke of since the character is supposed to have lived in an English village since she was 7 and by all rights should have lost her sometimes very thick Scottish accent.
There is only one downside to Amy Pond and that is the ridiculously short skirts they have her wearing. Now, not that I don’t mind a pretty women in a short skirt, but they are extremely impractical to go running around saving the Universe in.
See, highly impractical. However, I will make an exception for the Police Uniform, they can feel free to bring that back as often as they wish.
Now, if I haven’t convinced you about why Amy Pond is worthy of TWC perhaps this clip from the mini Doctor Who episode will be enough. Amy Pond flirting with….herself.
Thank you Steven Moffat.
