Amy / Rory to leave Doctor Who In Series 7

Amy /Rory to leave Doctor Who In Series 7

At lasts nights press screening of The Doctor, The Widow and the wardrobe Steven Moffat announced “The final days of the Ponds are coming during the next series”.

He added that it would be a heartbreaking end for the ponds and he thinks River Song Will return as well. The Doctor will also get a new friend.

      They did, well kinda, they kept having cameos in the episodes but at the end of the christmas special the doctor went to their house, had christmas dinner and now they are returning to the TARDIS, but the doctor still hasn’t found Melody.

    Steven Moffat said they may not come back after their ‘heartbreaking’ departure depending on the means of their exit. This means they may both be killed off.

    • John Locke

      December 21st, 2011 - 6:23pm

      Not exactly, he said he wouldn’t say whether or not they could come back because that could give away the means in which they leave. Obviously though, killing them off is a possible scenario (one that netter NOT happen).

      The first thing you think when he says “heartbreaking” is their death and Moffat knows this. He may be trying to be crafty, or (going by some his Doctor Who plots), it may as simple as you think it is.

      Moffat hasn’t said anything, Karen Gillan has said she isn’t coming back though.

      Nothing about Arthur Darvill though, maybe Rory will be revealed as the Master, it would certainly explain the continuous come backs from death, even when it’s impossible to do so.

    Since the 4th series i thought that river would be the next companion , i didn’t know why but i thought that there was a real connection between the doctor and river. But seeing amy i forgot about it completely. Now that amy and rory aren’t in it at least for now i think that river can come on as a full time companion and wife to the doctor.

    • Admiral Icktheus

      December 20th, 2011 - 2:37pm

      Apparently River will stay on after the Ponds leave but whether she’s a full time companion or a one off appearance character is unknown.

    • John Locke

      December 20th, 2011 - 5:15pm

      For some reason, I don’t see Kingston ever being a full time companion. More guest appearances though? Sure.

    • Admiral Icktheus

      December 20th, 2011 - 6:09pm

      I agree with you there but I think she should have less guest appearances next year to give her a little bit more mystery like in series 4 and 5

      I agree, she should do one or maybe two episodes a season. Last season was in danger of becoming the River Song show at one point !

      It’s not been confirmed when they will go, they could leave in the first episode, or the last. Nothing has been specified yet, other than it’s after the Christmas Special.

    • John Locke

      December 19th, 2011 - 6:11pm

      Since they are (unfortunately) getting rid of the Ponds, and if they must bring in a new companion instead having the Doctor be on his own… how about Canton? Mark Shepard is awesome and it would make some sense.

      It would, but it’s a new “friend”. I find it interesting they put friend in inverted commas in the press release, it makes it sound as though they are not friendly at all.

      If it’s the RAni a few people will be annoyed, that’s all I’ll say.

      He’s always got a get out clause somewhere, for example he has never personally stated when Amy and Rory are leaving other than “soon”. He is the sort of person who would not get rid of them until the 50th anniversary and reveal that it had been a cunning trap, and as he had never said anything he would get away with it because the press have assumed somethings about the show.

  • Admiral Icktheus

    December 19th, 2011 - 5:02am

    Does anyone else think the heartbreaking storyline might have something to do with the fact Amy killed Kovarian? Of course it was all in a different reality so everythings fine now but Amy seemed affected by it at the end of The Wedding Of River Song.

      That’s the way show works I’m afraid. The Doctor changes and companions come and go. As much as it’s gonna be hard to say goodbye to the Ponds I’m sure The Doctors new friend will be great too!

    • John Locke

      December 19th, 2011 - 1:19am

      Yes, the show is about change, but they didn’t need to get rid of em mid season… especially if they bring them back after sort of concluding their story with a happy little end just to give them some “heartbreaking” end.

      And like I’ve said before, personally, I was hoping they would be the only main companions for the entire Smith run. The 3 of them together are amazing.

      Will miss the Ponds 🙁

    • Anonymous

      December 19th, 2011 - 6:24pm

      They might not leave mid-series, Moffat is remaining tight lipped on how and when they will leave, I’m expecting a shocking plot twist somewhere.

  • StompingFreak

    December 18th, 2011 - 5:59pm

    Amy was ok, Rory became the new Mikey. We need someone who can move the Doctor forward, Donna was great for Tennant, a new strong lead lady is needed to compensate for the fool of a Doctor(no complates of matt, he just rem’s me of Pat Trougton). Plus we need SM to darken Dr Who, more Robert Holmes, less kiddie Jon Nathan-Turner years.

    The last season was great but the ending was so up it’s self. 3-4 part stories with the same name(e.g Darlek’s of Time pts 1-4). Have tv views become so lazy that more than a 1 part story hurts there brains.

    Please give us long stories, with a campaion who helps move the story forward.

      Actually it genuinely does, Steven Moffat got them to do a study of the episodes and ratings and AI go down on the second part of two parters regardless of how good they are (even if they are better than the first part).

      Annoying as it is that’s how it goes, that’s why next series, Moffat has gone for a slightly odd route, everything is a one parter but each links into the next in some way.

    • StompingFreak

      December 18th, 2011 - 7:05pm

      I am aware of this, But cant you see my other points? The show has lost’s its edge, that Russell T. Davies built up towards David Tennant’s end. Back with Chris E, the 1st season had moments, which have been built apon. Then S. Moffat dumbed story lines down. Look at River, the Doctor gives her a SD with a save file, She said his name, Then we get rule 1. Come on that’s a cop-out. It has made the event less important. Plus why all the Movie Ref’s(Peter cushing films) They arn’t part of the time line, so why no inner doors, why are the new Darleks movie style. All of the older fan’s(who lets face it, now buy thier kids the toys etc) feel the show has been dumbed down. I love Matt Smith as the Doctor, I just dont like the story arces.

      But you have fallen into the same trap as everyone else, the storyline with RIver Song has not finished yet, the sonic and name giving is yet to happen.

      Also, the new Daleks are not movie styled, they are based on the design but are not the same. There is nothing wrong with being inspired by something from another group of stories, plenty of things have been inspired by other movies, does it make any difference if this was originally based on Who itself.

      As for the story arcs, this has happened for years, even in the classic series. I prefer the Moffat style arc over RTDs, who at the end of his era was coughing up absolute drivel. He started off brilliantly and crashed around 2007-2008.

    • Anonymous

      December 18th, 2011 - 7:29pm

      As for your ideas about Mr Smith’s performance, you got it exactly right, he is inspired by Patrick Troughton’s performance, and his main companion was a man so why not the same here. We need another Jamie, too many women lately (lately being fourty years).

    • StompingFreak

      December 18th, 2011 - 8:27pm

      Yes we had Jamie, But as the RTD stories, River seemed far more important in the forest of the dead over the wedding of River Song. I almost feel like i’m chatting to Mark Gatiss or S.Moffat. I enjoyed the last season right up untill the question “Dr Who”, That was so poor. It’s like when any news of the show hit’s the media, “Who will be the new Dr Who”? The show is called Doctor Who, The Doctor is his name. I feel some what let down. Towards the end of the classic show(Macoy) the show’s sejested more dark nature to The Doctor, RTD Started to web out some past(the end of time ep 1-2, plus the time war). Since the re-gen, S.Moffat has dumbed it back down. Steven Moffat is a great script writer, But because of his commitment to other show’s(Sherlock) it would appear his time is very much split(can’t be easy for a man with a young family). Here’s an ideal, Let someone like Mark Gatiss write the main story arch, and Steven could fill in the blanks. I have loved this program since i was a little child. My love of the show has never left me. I just want the show to stay great, A little criticism cant hurt S. Mofatt if he was to read this. Old and new fan’s want the best, not second place to any or all projects that the writer/dir/prod/actor are working on.

      The show is about the mystery of the Doctor.

      The Doctor is not his name, it is a title to cover up his true name (which is unpronuncable to human beings (the closest thing we can say is “Theta Sigma”) but there is a reason why he doesn’t want to go by his old “nickname” and goes as “The Doctor”, and that is what is going to be revealed soon.

      The problem is, RTD went for a soap opera style, Steven Moffat if anything hasn’t dumbed it down but “smartened it up” to the extent where it is beyond practically everyone unless your willing to rewatch every episode several times or are willing to memorise every word so only dedicated children and fans will understand any of it.

    • StompingFreak

      December 20th, 2011 - 8:00pm

      I think you will find the the show is Doctor Who, But the Character is the The Doctor, As to the odd miss credit over the years. The main question was always is The Doctor half human(which has now been ansawered) or is he a timelord god/founder/createtor(watch remebrance of the darleks with ref to omaga).I am unsure as to your age group, but have the Doctor revile his Name before he looked into the untemped skisum would wreck everything..The Who in the shows title is who is the doctor, not who surname(P.Cushing films). To revile his turth, whats the show going to be called then…Doctor Jon Smith Timelord??? As for Quote :” Steven Moffat if anything hasn’t dumbed it down but “smartened it up” to the extent where it is beyond practically everyone unless your willing to rewatch every episode several times or are willing to memorise every word so only dedicated children and fans will understand any of it”
      Please, how can you say that?? Have you watch any of the classic series?? SM has kiddie-fied the show. Ask anyone 30. I like SM as a script writer, but we(as fan’s, i speck on behalf of alot of old fans)need more adult stories,(look a the Robert Homles years). Back in the 70’s Tom Baker’s stories did have children hiding behind sofa.

      Although good, you cant say that of any of the last two seasons.

      COmpared to the RTD era it is, he’s moved it away from “EastEnders land” of course it is rubbish compared to the classic series, but compared to some of the drivel RTD gave us over the years I’d rather have Moffat any day.

      I just refuse to believe that anyoen can call it “childish” when they also claim it is “far too complicated for children” at exactly the same time, and complain about over use of innuendo and being overly scary. It seems that for every complaint there is, there is another complaint for exactly the opposite reason as the initial complaint was wanting to have.

      You can’t please everyone certainly but let’s face it, the ratings are the same, more people watch it overall than the same period of the David tennant era.

      With the exception of a couple of fans and newspapers there haven’t really been that many problems with the show, if there was, nobody would be watching it, yet they have remained constant.

    • the TARDIS

      December 21st, 2011 - 11:18am

      The series has not exactly dumbed down since Russell T. Davies left – the Melody Pond story arc is one of the most confusing things the series has ever done. And as for ‘kiddiefying’ the show, just think about the Silence. The fact that you cannot remember them and that they have influenced everything we have ever done is a very’adult’ concept. Amy shooting a child in a spacesuit would have scared a lot of children because someone you trust shooting a child completely destroys any faith you have in them. There is an awful lot more innuendo in the series now as well, having a married couple in the TARDIS. here are some examples:
      AMY: I thought I was an excellent pirate.
      RORY: I thought you were an excellent nurse.

      RORY: You should have told me, I’m a nurse, I’m good with pregnancies.
      AMY: Not, as it turns out, that good.

      RORY: Doctor, do you have a room?

      VASTRA: I am trying to be delicate, I know how you can blush.
      (DORIUM chuckles.)
      VASTRA: When did this baby… Begin?
      DOCTOR: Oh, you meen…
      VASTRA: Quite.

      RORY: Do you mind not flirting with me? you’re old enough to be my mum.
      OLD AMY: Don’t be coy now. I’ve known you all my life, how many games of Doctors and Nurses?

      It’s just dirty. And anyone dares to say it’s too childish?

    Well, with that said, I would just like to explain what a great team they made.

    The Doctor, Amy, and the Rory, who is so alienated by the Doctor and the bizarre situations he finds himself in. (Rory) 😉

    And Amy, who got on with Matt Smith’s Doctor in a great, though not-always-harmonious relationship ! 😆

    I think Katie McGrath (Morgana In Merlin) would be great as the next companion as:
    •she is Irish like Amy was Scotish
    •she is young and good looking
    •not many people know who she is so it would be her big chance
    •she is already in a BBC programme
    •she also has a certain look about her-she looks brave and adventurous

      Definetly not (not meaning that against the characters, just stating the facts), the whole reason the characters are being considered for being killed off is because Karen Gillan doesn’t want to come back in the future out of fdear of ruining the character or the “heartbreaking” leaving (and after what Billie Piper did to Rose in Series 4 who could blame her).

      December 18th, 2011 - 3:34pm

      i liked her!

      Yes i think she should come back but so should the doctors daughter they both would make great doctors companions but personaly i think de souza should only appear in 1 eposode due to that they would have to be really creative in the way that they bring her back. she was good in the planet of the dead with david tennent but not with matt smith good idea but if they were to bring someone from tennents years for it to be Captain Jack Harknes or the doctors daughter (Jenny)

      There has been no confirmation about Jack returning next year. If anything John Barrowman is keen to be a part of the 50th anniversary. Moffat is talking about a possible return of the character unless there is a good story for him like A Good Man Goes To War which Moffat originally hoped Jack would appear in but unfortuanately Barrowman was filming Miracle Day at the same time A Good Man Goes To War was in production.

      I doubt Jenny is coming back, she was Moffat’s back up plan for River Song’s identity if whoever played Amy Pond didn’t stay on for a second series.

    I can’t believe they have sacked Karen & Arthur I thought they were the best companions the show has had since 1963, let alone 2005. gdbye ponds.

      Yes me too they were the best ,i really thought that amy was the greatest companion ever.the story behind her and rory, and the way that river slid in so perfectly. river as the doctor’s wife she will be appearing in the next series , if she doesn’t i will be very disapointed

  • i were shades now shades are cool

    It will be a shame to see Amy Pond and Rory Williams (A.K.A. Karen Gillen and Arther Duvill-Sorry for spelling ) leave the show. But its time for fresh blood in the assistence post. I hope they write them out with a big bang

      Doctor:Stormy reckons the TARDIS is bigger than you. Stormy says that nothing is bigger than you! Stormy is now thinking how that’s possible.
      Craig:But surely this place has a gymn??!???
      Doctor:Stormy says I lost it.
      Craig:And did you??
      Doctor:No I just misplaced it.
      Craig:So you did lose it!
      Doctor:No I misplaced it. There’s a difference.
      Doctor:Stormy reckons your questions are annoying.

      Doctor:On it now! I’m rewiring the basic controls to send a virus to the main controls of the ship which will either blow it up or send it smashing to Earth where some random events will begin there which don’t concern me! There we go!
      Craig:What will happen when it lands on Earth?
      Doctor:What did I just tell you? I’ll even look for myself on the scanner screen if you want but you know I shouldn’t expect any-Rory??!??

      11th doctor: Craig,what are you doing.Alfie is crying.
      Alfie: WAAAAAAAAAH!
      11th Doctor: I will get a hankerchief,stormageddon
      Narator(me): Then Alfie pressed a button on one of the tardis lower panels and a man appeared….
      10th Doctor: Hello,little baby who are you?

      Doctor:Merry Christmas Craig!
      Craig:Umm you too but err I forgot to get you a present.
      Doctor:Theres always the next 100 trillion years. Anyway I got you a Rory figure but this isn’t any old Rory figure this is a 17 year old Rory.
      Craig:But Alfie hates 17 year old Rory. It’s the…the…voice.
      Doctor:Ah yes the dreaded sound of the 17 year old Rory. It makes the Trivaerhbdhktxdtjnxvlians wail in pain.
      Craig:Since when did they make figures of Rory anyway?
      Doctor:Since 17 year old Rory. No Stormy. No how dare you suggest that!! Yes uh huh I see. Interesting. Training???!??????!!?????!??????
      Craig:Whats he saying?
      To be continued…immediately

      Doctor:He said that he wants to go to school.
      Craig:Is that it? Of course he’s gonna go to school.
      Doctor:He seemed very…determined. Anyway shall we pick up Sophie now?
      Craig:Maybe you should ask 17 year old Rory.
      Doctor:Craig???? Really???
      Craig:It was a joke.
      Doctor:Yes and if Stormy hears those jokes then Omega only knows what will happen at school. What if John McToughie hears him? Toughest kid in the school apparently. Stood up in front of the class and poured ketchup all over the teachers head and then whacked him round the face and then used a basketball to attack the deputy head. He’s mad.
      Craig:Look who’s talking.
      Doctor:Craig Stormy is right next to you and if he hears that joke!

    i hope they dont get killed off. that would just be mean, it will be interesting to see them go and how the new doctor will react to it, therer still loads of stuff left to answer about river song, like the sonic, i wonder who’s the doctor new friend wll be? how many eps will amy and rory be in the series?

      It’s not certain yet what is happening, they might be killed off, that is certainly Karen Gillan’s wish so she doesn’t do a Billie Piper and come back in two years time and wreck the character.

    • John Locke

      December 17th, 2011 - 12:19am

      Moffat, I will come for you if they kill them off.

      They have not killed a companion yet, even after multiple times LITERALLY saying they would die in the episode only to mean a figurative death. If they bring them back from the “safe”, happy end they were already given only for them to appear in a few more eps and give them a tragic end and then the Doctor a “new friend”… No. No. No. The Ponds deserve better.

    • John Locke

      December 18th, 2011 - 9:29pm

      Not really. Main companions are Rose, Martha, Donna, Amy and Rory. Characters like Jack, Mickey, River, Rose’s mom, etc are not main companions, but even if you want to include them I think we can agree that killing off characters (Boe/Jack, River) that still can and do appear in the show is NOT the same as killing off a character for good.

      They killed off Peri. Sort of because then they brought her back and married her to Brian Blessed. Poor Peri.

    Sad news gotta love the ponds. interesing quote from steven moffat regarding the new companion i read online ‘I’m not going to tell you anything about he, she or it.’ “it” maybe being a hint we might be getting an alien companion. personally i would love christina chong (jenny from a good man goes to war)as the next companion, obviously as a different character though seeing as she died.

      ‘He, She or It’ is a long-running iin-joke dreamt up by JNT and Tom Baker when talking about the new Doctor. It’s doesn’t mean anything…probably.

      Steven Moffat has seemed determined to destroy any predetermined beliefs about how Doctor Who should work, hence the series split last year, not having any multi-parters next year etc.

      There is every chance he will get a non “human female” companion.
