Karen Gillan's departure from 'Doctor Who' is the "best exit ever".

The 24-year-old actress and co-star Arthur Darvill are being written out during the next series and although Karen has promised the scenes will be incredibly emotional, she is pleased with the way her character Amy Pond bows out.

Speaking at the Comic Con convention in San Diego, she said: "I was in bits. I didn't want to go. There were tears, a lot of tears. But it is the best exit ever."

Matt Smith - who plays the Time Lord - added: "I miss the guys but all good things must come to an end and frankly they are out.

"But they go out with a bang and a tear."

He also revealed that Karen cheekily fondled his bum as they filmed their final scene.

Arthur - who plays Amy's husband Rory Williams - said: "The last scene that we shot was inside the Tardis with all three of us and we were then in darkness, and we had a big hug."

Matt added: "We had a hug. And Karen fondled me. I called her 'fondling bottom Gillan'."

The new series of 'Doctor Who' will begin next month and will include an episode where the Time Lord encounters dinosaurs in space.
