At one point in the interview they're just meowing at each other. Two years doing the time-warp does funny things to a person.
In real life, however, Karen and Arthur are a hooting, karate-chopping double act who are clearly going to miss each other. I ask how any Doctor Who assistant could be happy going back to reality after living it up in the Tardis.

It's not unlike their on-screen partnership. Arthur Darvill did toy with a music career back in the day and formed a band called Edmund with his friends.

In the last year, two actors who've done tours of duty as Tardis sidekicks — Mary Tamm and Caroline John — have passed away; they were still called "former Doctor Who assistants" in every obituary and news story. I ask Karen and Arthur if they'll still be happy to be called "former Doctor Who assistants" when their careers have taken them far away from Cardiff and Steven Moffat.
Will they still go to conventions? They're so much fun. He erupts into snickers. Armed with their modest haul of CDs, the pair disappear into the lift, designer shades on, and head out into the sunshine for a smoke before their separate cars arrive. Time to go solo.
