As we discovered yesterday, the Weeping Angels have also been confirmed as has a little bit more information regarding the departure of the Ponds. Moffat has confirmed that they will leave in episode 5 of series 7 which is the same episode that includes the deadly stone statues. Will we see Amy and Rory taken out of time forever, their potential futures taken away and devoured by the hungry Angels?
One can only hope not but Moffat is being cagey with the details and we know that Karen Gillan has no plans to bring the character of Amy Pond back after she departs so maybe a companion will truly die this time around? The Tweet below quoting The Grand Moff certainly confirms that people will die but then we’ve seen in the past that it doesn’t always turn out that way (The Parting of the Ways springs to mind…)!
And where will Skaro’s finest fit in to the equitation? Moffat has already mentioned that episode 1 of the new series will contain the words “_______ of the ________” does this mean that we may have the Daleks doing a season opener? Something that hasn’t happened since 1988’s Remembrance of the Daleks?
It would seem likely; it would be a massive ratings winner and an exciting way to start this very special series of Doctor Who.
