We are on record as long being a fan of Karen Gillan, whose body of acting work is growing but who is best known still as a hugely successful Dr Who “companion”.

She’s approachable, funny, sexy, smart and has loads on on-screen chutzpah, with a wide range of available emotions projected by those big, ridiculously perfect hazel eyes.

She also sends us video messages – well, one video message – but that’s a whole other story.

Now it turns out she’s a fine writer and director too.

Watch it. Conventional. Ten minutes of perfectly nuanced misery.

The short form of video is highly demanding. Much more demanding than many of the great, flabby two-hours-plus bore-fests that pass for feature films.

Karen Gillan knows a lot about fan conventions. Goodness: we can only hope her experience of them is happier than this very creepy little film.

We’re betting there is much more to come from Ms Gillan – keep an eye wide open.
