'It's the series finale, and on set,
'the cast are getting patched up and ready for action.'
This is a really exciting moment, the emotional and practical climax
of all 13 episodes.
Attention, all personnel.
-"Attention, all personnel."
We're in, right now, a pyramid
which is the result of an alliance between ancient Egypt
and modern America.
Hi, honey. I'm home.
And what sort of time do you call this?
The death of time.
History has collapsed. All of history is happening at once.
Amy and Rory are basically deciding to get married
in a different time zone. River's being difficult as always,
and Madame Kovarian's about to meet her brutal death.
'And all of that using just one eye.'
It's really disconcerting.
You feel slightly dizzy, actually,
when you're just working with that one eye.
It's very, very odd.
It's kind of weird. It weirded us all out,
especially when I'm trying to flirt with Alex Kingston.
It's easy to flirt with two eyes.
Matt managed to flirt perfectly well with the eye patch,
so that's all right. And he can carry on as long as he likes.
'Flirty or not,
'what they are is essential gear for Silent spotting.'
Eye-drives, very important things. Don't forget your eye-drive.
If you do, you'll forget a Silent, and that's not good.
It's no use, with a memory-proof creature, to say, "Could you fetch me a coffee?"
and they wander off and don't come back.
..former envoy of the Silence.
So just in order for the Silence to get some decent admin done
back in the office, they require eye-drives.
119, take one.
But they can be controlled and used as a weapon,
which none of us know.
And you're wearing eye-drives based on mine, I think.
-What do you mean?
Tell me! What? SHE SCREAMS IN AGONY
Cut. That was excellent. Well done.
So, er, how do you feel about being in an Egyptian pyramid
-on the set of...
-It's amazing. I love the Egyptians,
-and I love hieroglyphics.
-I love their use of sand.
-I find that really cool.
-And Tut and Khamun.
Er, yeah. And, um... You know, it's...
Yeah, OK. That's all we've got time for today.
-You are great at interviewing.
-You are really good.
-The questions were hot.
-I am impressed.
How's your... This is day two on Who.
Day two on Who. It is!
-How's that going for you?
-except I die in about two seconds.
-Oh, and that's you done?
-That's me done.
Three, two, one...
'Pretty scary, huh? But outside in the car park,
'there's something even more frightening.
'It's Karen Gillan with a machine gun.'
Sorry if I'm talking really loudly. I've got earplugs in.
I came in this morning thinking I'd be doing small, fake guns.
They were, like, "No, you're going to learn how to fire a full-on machine gun."
I was, like, "Oh, my God!"
They're real guns, converted to fire blank for film and TV.
Right. Are you watching?
-So firm grip on there, OK?
You're going to be spraying these guys, so it's like a...
dagga-dagga-dagga. And fire!
SHE SCREAMS All right. That's it.
That's it. You're going really aggressive.
-OK. You're fine.
Whoo! That felt cool!
132, take 1, A marker.
Amy finally remembers to come back for the love of her life,
and says she loves him the only way Amy could - with a machine gun.
You know, nothing says "I love you" more than a machine gun.
SWELLING ROMANTIC STRING MUSIC
How was that, Karen? How does that feel?
Yeah. I'm a bit shaky, but, um...
Cos I'm firing at people. Do you know what I mean?
-That would freak me out.
-I just don't want the guilt!
Ear pieces out. No firing on this.
The Doctor's getting married, would you believe?
SONG: "I Do, I Do, I Do" by ABBA
-Then, you may kiss the bride.
-I'll make it a good one.
# Love me or leave me
# Make your choice, but believe me
# I love you
# I do, I do, I do, I do, I do #
Ooh, I could just kiss you all night!
And I you, Miss Kingston.
Oh, the wedding and the kiss!
Well, I wouldn't say it was necessarily much of a wedding.
I think, um, when it comes to getting married,
River may have preferred something a little more splendid
then just standing on top of a pyramid.
'It was a pretty good kiss, though.'
I mean, if that's how robots kiss, that's how Teselectas kiss,
-I'm all for it.
Was it even really a wedding and was it even really a marriage?
Um, that's the big question.
River, I'm about to whisper something in your ear,
and you have to remember it very, very well.
What the Doctor whispers in my ear at that moment
is the fact that I should look into his eyes very deeply,
and of course, when I do, I see the teeny, teeny, tiny real Doctor.
Because actually he's a Teselecta. He's not the Doctor at all.
-He's actually a robot at the time,
albeit one operated by a version of himself.
and he doesn't give his name, so does that count?
And yet clearly River, at that stage in her life, does know his name,
so who knows?
So...yes. Is there more to come?
