KAREN GILLAN in "The Well"

New companion AMY POND is still sometime away from being seen on television but before then you catch the actress playing her, KAREN GILLAN, in the new BBC show, THE WELL - an eight-week drama event that plays across multiple platforms. Collated here are some pictures of Karen in action and behind~the~scenes. Click on the images for bigger versions.


The Well, created by Melvin Burgess, was launched simultaneously on television and online, where the audience can explore a scale replica of the main location for the story - the derelict house where the well is discovered. Between TV episodes the audience can enter the house to explore the environment, and by completing a series of tasks and challenges (13 x flash games), they can unlock hidden drama content: revealing the terrifying backstory to the drama and getting one step ahead of our characters.



As the story develops, the drama flows between the TV episodes (4 x 10 minutes) and the 3D immersive game (3 x 20 minute levels); when a character hides an item within the house on TV, the audience can immediately go online, solve a puzzle, and uncover the item from its hiding place. The story has been woven across these multiple platforms, and the more the audience engages with the story (on TV, online and on social networks) the more they can deepen their experience of the drama and our characters.


New Doctor Who actress KAREN GILLAN plays Coll, a brainy beauty, but she’s somehow not a hit with the boys. It’s as if every exam-slamdunk under her belt makes the lads give her a wider berth. It’s Luis she fancies the pants off (though he fills his with fear every time she looks at him!). But luckily for Beth and co, Coll is nothing if not determined and she won’t give up until she cracks the mysterious secrets of the well - and Luis.


The next episode airs on BBC Two, Oct 17 @ 13.25
