On a news conference for the upcoming "Doctor Who" Chrismas special, current showrunner Steven Moffat announced that Amy's and Rory's days with the Doctor are numbered.
According to the UK Mirror, Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill will be leaving the show during the course of the next season. Moffat said the following at the conference:
"The Ponds will be rejoining us next series. But the final days of the Ponds are coming, I am not telling you when and and I won’t say how. But that story is going to come to a heartbreaking end.”
Moffat was not giving more details, but said that there's a new companion on the horizon for the Time Lord.
“And then the Doctor is going to meet a new friend and I am not going to tell you about he, she or it.”
Matt Smith added about Amy's looming departure:
“We have had the most incredible journey and we had to hold hands at first when we joined. It is very disappointing but this show is about change. It is always about looking forward.”
So, what do you think about the coming end of Amy's and Rory's journey? Disappointed, or excited about the changes that lie ahead?
