A Graveyard of Companions…

The following article contains spoilers for the upcoming series of Doctor Who, notably the story featuring the departure of the Ponds.

There are various accounts online, notably at DoctorWhoTV, summarizing these images which all take place in a graveyard and are from the story midway through Series 7 that sees the Doctor finally say goodbye to Amy and Rory.

With Matt Smith, Alex Kingston and Karen Gillan all at the shoot, which takes place in a graveyard – just the place to find a statue of an angel – you would be right to expect the scenes filmed there to be pretty intense, not to mention crucial to the episode.

Will Amy somehow offer herself to a Weeping Angel? Which version of River Song is this?

You’re probably wondering just where the heck is Arthur Darvill? Well, we probably shouldn’t say, even in a spoiler. But if you want the details, just remember that time travel solves a lot of things.

Karen Gillan as Amy Pond - for the last time.

We’ve already seen the Doctor reading this book in New York – here Amy reads it, sat next to a headstone. It’s pretty likely that Melody Malone refers to River Song.


So there you have it. We’re not going down the same route of total spoilerification as our source – there is more than enough here to speculate on.

Please note that spoilers may appear in the comments below.
