Karen Gillan has confirmed she will return to 'Doctor Who'.

The actress - who plays the time-travelling Doctor's companion, Amy Pond - will be back for the seventh series of the BBC One sci-fi show, her third alongside the current Doctor, Matt Smith.

Speaking at Comic-Con in San Diego yesterday (24.07.11), she told blog Zap2it: "I am going to come back, yes. That's the first time I've said that today!"

Speculation was rife that Karen would not be returning to the show after her casting in a revival of stage play 'Inadmissible Evidence' by John Osborne in London.

Karen was at the conference for the first time, and said she had a weird encounter when she and Matt came face to face with fans dressed as their characters.

She added: "It's amazing. I can't believe the scale of it. It's a whole town.

"The other day me and Matt ran into the Doctor and Amy. It's a really surreal experience. It's so exciting!"

Meanwhile, producers Piers Wenger and Beth Willis revealed the doctor could once day regenerate in a different gender.

When asked by a young girl if he there could ever be a female doctor, producer Beth Willis, said: "I think it's possible. Every time the Doctor regenerates, the thought crosses the mind."
