Doctor Who thing of the day: say good-bye to Amy and Rory

Doctor Who Arthur Darvill Karen Gillan Matt Smith

So, there was a press screening last night of the upcoming Christmas episode — which I was not, by the way, invited to *harumph* — and during the Q&A afterward, Steven Moffat dropped a big spoiler. Quoted at the Guardian:

Amy and Rory will be rejoining us next series and joining the Doctor back on the Tardis. But the final days of the Ponds are coming – and during the next series. I’m not telling you when and certainly not telling you how. But that story is going to come to a heartbreaking end.

There are only so many more adventures with the lovely Amy and the lovely Rory. So that story, next series, during the series will be over. And then the Doctor is going to meet a new friend – and I’m not going to tell you anything about he, she or it!

Frankly, I’m disappointed they’re coming back after the end of “The Wedding of River Song” — it seemed like the right sendoff for them right there.

At least Moffat has another chance to make some sort of science-fictional sense out of how messed-up Amy’s life is. Maybe the heartbreaking ending will be the thing I suspected from the beginning: that Amy herself is the crack in the universe (or an artifact of it). It’s be pretty heartbreaking if she sort of wound down and ceased to have ever existed as a result of the crack ceasing to exist…

(If you stumble across a cool Doctor Who thing, feel free to email me with a link.)
