Heartbreak TARDIS

At the recent press launch for the coming Doctor Who Christmas special, one of the worst kept secrets in Whodom was confirmed: Amy is leaving the TARDIS for good.

Described by Steven Moffat as “heartbreaking”, the moment has already been cleverly pre-empted by the closing moments of The God Complex. Of course, Amy and Rory were seen to leave the TARDIS in one episode only to be spotted in the following adventure and then appeared as alternate versions of themselves in The Wedding of River Song.

Right now, neither is travelling in the TARDIS, but you can bet that is about to change very soon. But back to The Grand Moff:

“The final days of the Ponds are coming. I’m not telling you when or how, but that story is going to come to a heartbreaking end.”

With the departure of primary companion Amy Pond and her partner from the Doctor’s life there is of course opportunity to bring in a new actor or actress to work with Matt Smith, who sounds as though he’s going to miss Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill.

“We had the most incredible journey. We took over the show and we’ve really had to hold hands and help each other through it.

“So it’s very disappointing, but one has to remember that this show is about change and regeneration, and that’s what galvanizes it and pushes it forwards.”

Indeed it does – and the very best of post-Doctor Who luck to Karen and Arthur!
