Watch Amy Pond go all Jack Sparrow in 2 Doctor Who set videos

Some actresses have all the luck. Not only does Karen Gillan get to star in Doctor Who as Amy Pond, the Doctor's companion, but the redheaded Scot also gets to turn into a swashbuckler. In an upcoming episode, we see Amy using swordplay to fight pirates—and looking good while doing it.

We don't know anything else about the episode (although we suspect it's not the upcoming one written by Neil Gaiman). In fact, in these clips, brought to us courtesy of SFX, it's hard to tell what's going on. Is Amy actually threatening the Doctor with a sword, or is she just waving it around?

See for yourselves. And let us know what you think is happening in the scenes below.
