Tweets Of The Week

They’ve been going Twitter-tastic on the set of Doctor Who ’s New York episode (opens in new tab) over the past week. Not only has Arthur Darvill been pegging people left, right and centre*, but Karen Gillan finally took the plunge, embraced the spambots and entered the Twittersphere. This means that hopefully we won’t have to put up with pointless imposters from now on (seriously, who in their right mind does that?), or those who like to point out incessantly that obvious fakers are fakers...

The highlights of her time on Twitter so far: 50,000 followers in less than 24 hours, forgetting to turn her email notifications off (we’d hate to see that inbox), cress puns and a brief exchange with former Who companion Nicola Bryant. Our personal highlight: the description of herself as a “bit moony” in her bio. Oh, Pond, why do you have to leave us so soon?

@ RattyBurvil so @KarenGillan2 has NOT turned off her email notifications and her battery has died. Cue 50000 emails. Today just got so much better.

*And if you didn’t know what pegging is...

@ DAVID_A_SLADE Daredevil update is that there is no real Daredevil update. We all want to make it but its going slow, %26 details are too boring to print

I am focussing on Hannibal hoping after that to be able to get a burst of energy back on DD.

@ Paul_Cornell 'If you're calling to say Human Nature was great but Blink was so much better, and why don't you write another episode, press two...'
