Moff: Pond Departure “Heartbreaking”
The Grand Moff has spoken – to the University Observer, the widest-read student publication in Ireland – and he’s happily teasing that the departure of our beloved Ponds is going to be something that will touch the hearts of all viewers.
With Doctor Who entering full production shortly and two of its stars moving on, it seems appropriate that an interview which seems to focus on Sherlock and Moffat’s early career as a writer should at least touch on the subject of their final episode.
“I’m writing that right now… It will be quite heartbreaking. I think you’ll be in trouble watching it.”
Personally, it sounds wonderful – and sad at the same time. Could Kasterborous’ editor have to reach for the comfort of his favourite plush Dalek when watching the episode?
We’ll see – after all, we don’t know when it will be aired yet. And neither does the Moffinator:
“We just had our official day commencing pre-production on Doctor Who, so as for knowing when it’s actually going to be shown is a little bit optimistic. But we’ll definitely show it, and I’m pretty sure it will be the autumn.”
