  1. I call “divorce”.

  2. Love ‘em both. Rory and Amy are at the top of my list of Whovian companions … And I’ve been a fan since Patrick Troughton morphed into Jon Pertwee. So many screaming, ankle-spraining, panicky and embarrassingly useless females in the Tardis over the years have, thankfully, been shouldered aside for characters you can admire and care about. The Ponds who fought machines and monsters while they waited for each other created a terrific background for Dr Matt. Together with their wonderful wild child Riversong, Amy and Rory helped make the series truly one of the very best.
