Karen Gillan has revealed she loved working with 'Doctor Who' guest star David Walliams because he was so funny on set

Karen Gillan says it was great fun working with "submissive mole" David Walliams on 'Doctor Who'.

The actress - who plays the Time Lord's companion Amy Pond in the BBC One sci-fi series - has revealed the comic actor was hilarious on set when they were shooting upcoming episode 'The God Complex', in which he plays nervous alien Gibbis.

She said: "David Walliams plays a really submissive mole. It is really hard working with him as he really makes you laugh. He pulls out a cracking performance which is brilliant."

Karen also enjoyed having 'Gavin and Stacey' star James Corden back on set, even though she doesn't get to shoot much with him because most of his scenes are with Matt Smith who portrays The Doctor.

In an interview with the Daily Mirror newspaper, she added: "James Corden is back for round two, and he and Matt work together so well. I never get to work with him, I'm never in the episodes. I just love he chemistry between him and Matt."

James first appeared as Craig Owen in series 5 of 'Doctor Who' in the episode 'The Lodger' and returns to battle the Time Lord's old foes the Cybermen in the autumn run of the current season.

'Doctor Who' returns to BBC One on Saturday August 27 with 'Let's Kill Hitler'.
