Doctor Who: Steven Moffatt says there will be no return for Amy Pond!
Fans of the show will know how Amy, and her onscreen husband, Rory (Arthur Darvil), were written out of the hugely successful BBC sci-fi show earlier this year, with former Emmerdale actress, Jenna-Louise Coleman stepping in to replace Amy, played by Karen Gillan, as the Time lord, Matt Smith’s, new side kick.
The pair departed the epic drama last month, in an emotional episode The Angels Take Manhattan, during which Amy wasn’t killed but let a sinister Weeping Angel blast her back in time to find husband Rory.
This left fans hopeful that the door may have been left open for Gillan to return and reprise her flame haired companion’s role, but today Steven Moffat, the genius behind the series, has ruled that out as a possibility.
Speaking to the Sun newspaper, Steven said: “At the very beginning, when I was talking to Karen, I said ‘Let’s make it a proper ending’.
“It’s better to just end it and get out. The story of Amy and Rory is absolutely, definitively over.
“You can never eliminate the possibility of dream sequences or flashbacks. But will the Doctor see them again? No.
“Heaven knows if Amy and Rory will appear in some form of flashback.
“But I have no plans, I have to say.”
