Doctor Who thing of the day: what happened to Brian Pond–er Williams?

The BBC is very concerned that we are all very concerned about what happened to Amy and Rory, and if Rory’s father, Brian, ever learned of their fate. From the official Doctor Who site:

Rory’s dad, Brian Williams, only appeared in two episodes but swiftly established himself as a favourite amongst Doctor Who’s audience. After Amy and Rory’s heart-breaking departure in The Angels Take Manhattan we received many emails asking what happened next to Brian. Did he ever find out what took his son and daughter-in-law? If so, how? And would Brian – and viewers – ever learn more about Amy and Rory’s life after the Doctor?

A special scene was written by Chris Chibnall that revealed some of the answers but sadly, the sequence was never shot. However, we’re happy to announce that we’ll be bringing you the scene tomorrow. Using animated storyboards and a voice-over specially recorded by Arthur Darvill, we’ll discover more about Brian and the Ponds, post-Angels.

It begins with Brian alone, doing what he once told the Doctor must be done – watering the plants. But his life is about to change forever…

And here is that scene. It’s an animatic, with a voiceover by Arthur Darvill:

Nice… but basically the opening scene of “Blink” all over again.

Hat-tips to Shirley, Dan, Paula, Henry, RogerBW, and Lanna. Sorry if I missed anyone else.
