Hard to imagine, but it was four years ago yesterday that the BBC showed the very first official image of the newly minted Matt Smith as the Eleventh Doctor with Karen Gillan as his new companion, Amy Pond, on Doctor Who.

So, in order to remind us of what was (sending us down a timey-wimey memory lane in the process), Gillan tweeted the picture, and here's the image that she shared, in its full-on glory, below for your enjoyment.

It’s actually the first ever real image of Smith and Gillan both in character. It was taken during their costume tests. (Also, notice the markers on the floor.)

Ah, the end on an era.

What do you guys think of this picture? Does it bring back fond memories? Are you already missing Matt Smith as the Eleventh Doctor and Karen Gillan as Amy Pond?
