It would seem that Doctor Who writer, Steven Moffat, has no plans to bring back show favourites Amy Pond and her husband Rory Williams.
With the 50th anniversary plans well underway for later this year, there were many a rumour floating around at who may make a comeback to help the Doctor celebrate this momentous land-mark occasion, with Rory (Arthur Darvil) and Amy (Karen Gillan) looking like dead certs.
However, according to Blogtor Who, the Doctor Who gossip website, the genius behind the hit sci-fi family entertainment show, Steven Moffat, has ruled out a return for the pair, and not just for the party – indefinitely!
According to the blog site Moffat is quoted as saying he has “no plans” to bring back the last two companions of the Time Lord (currently being played by Matt Smith), adding:
“You could never eliminate the possibility of dream sequences and flashbacks. “But will the Doctor see them again? No.”
The writer, who has just penned the new series due to air at the end of this month, went on to say how he was pleased to have given Amy and Rory a “proper ending” when he wrote them out of the show in their last episode The Angels Take Manhattan last year, adding:
“Bringing back things just gives you sequel-itis. Just end it and get out. Heaven knows if they’ll appear in some form of flashback – I have no plans to do that I have to say – but the story of Amy and The Doctor is definitively over.”
Oh dear, looks like Arthur Darvil, who played Rory Williams, may be disappointed then as he had previously stated in an interview with Digital Spy how he would “never say never” to a return as he is such a fan of Moffat’s writing, adding:
“I’m very loyal to Doctor Who – I saw Steven Moffat recently and I think he’s brilliant. “He’s one of those people that if he ever asked me to do anything, I’d do it.”
