Doctor Who bosses had to cut a scene after discovering that Scottish star Karen Gillan could not swim, the actress has revealed.
Gillan said co-star Matt Smith first realised that she could not swim when they went for a dip in between shoots.
The problem was further exposed when filming a scene in which the Tardis was flooded.
She joked that it ruined the show.
“I can’t swim,” Gillan said. “There was actually a scene in one episode when I needed to swim in the Tardis, and they cut it out. I have ruined the show.”
Smith added: “I thought she was drowning.”
