Karen Gillan has spoken about her future as Amy Pond and has commented that she will not make any “Rose Tyler” style returns once she leaves the show.
In an interview for the Doctor Who Brilliant Book 2012, the actress spoke of how she did not want to keep coming back and forth in the Doctor’s life but would rather draw a line under the saga of Amy Pond once and for all.
“Death would be an option. I don’t want Amy to pop up again every so often, because for me it would take away from the big, emotional goodbye.
“Once she’s gone, she’s gone. I want people to remember the Amy Pond era as a good one.”
Amy Pond and Rory Williams recently left the Doctor’s life (or more accurately, were made to leave) at the end of The God Complex. That hasn’t stopped them from appearing in two further episodes albeit not as regular TARDIS dwellers.
So what does the future hold for the two characters? Have we seen the last of them or will they be popping up for a few appearances before disappearing forever. There have been rumours as to whether we will see Karen or Arthur Darvill in any of the 2012/2013 series but it does seem very unlikely that they’ve already filmed their last ever episodes.
After all, it wouldn’t seem right if the Williams’ weren’t at the Fields of Trenzalore at the fall of the Eleventh…
