Asked about executive producer, Steven Moffat's description of her final episodes as a "love letter to the Ponds", Karen told The Big Issue: "That doesn't necessarily mean death, but it will be pretty final.
"So yeah, you are going to cry. I hope so, anyway. I like making you cry. That makes me happy..."
"I love this girl... I want to see her go out in flames of glory, where we see her at her absolute best.
"I just want people to look back over the Pond era fondly. I have had the best years of my life on this show, hand on my heart."
