‘Doctor Who’ thing of the day: so where does Amy sleep, anyway?

This dates back to last autumn, but with the new series coming up fast, it’s worth talking about, because it may hint at something we’re going to see. From Digital Spy:

Michael Moorcock has revealed that the BBC did not want him to give Amy Pond her own room in his Doctor Who tie-in novel The Coming of the Terraphiles.

The author told The Quietus that the broadcaster did not mind him inserting aspects of his own multiverse into the book, which was published in October.

Moorcock said: “The only real problem with Cardiff, as we call the BBC… was, I wanted Amy to have her own room in the Tardis, so I can describe her getting up in the morning and hearing something going on in the main Tardis bit, you know, and coming in to breakfast, or whatever it was.

“They didn’t like that, and I think it’s because they’ve got story plans that might not fit. I wanted to have Captain Jack in, but they didn’t want me to, again because they kind of save these characters up for a specific purpose

Now, we know Amy tried it on with the Doctor and he was having none of it, so those of us with dirty minds can’t even go to “she’s sleeping in the Doctor’s room.” What else, then? Will we perhaps see Amy and Rory’s shared quarters on the TARDIS this year?
