The spunky, red headed companion of Matt Smith‘s eleventh Doctor, Amy Pond had better watch out. Someone’s got a death wish for her, and it’s none other than actress, Karen Gillan! Wait–what? In a recent interview with the Daily Mirror, Gillan discussed the character’s possible demise,
Death would be an option. I don’t want Amy to pop up again every so often, because for me it would take away from the big, emotional goodbye. Once she’s gone, she’s gone. I want people to remember the Amy Pond era as a good one.
Whoa, whoa, whoa. Karen, let’s be reasonable. Death? Does it need to come to this? Does it have to be so absolutely final and well, horribly sad and depressing. Amy can’t die! It would suck. A lot. And we’d all be really sad and stuff.
We can still remember the Amy Pond era as the glorious time of Doctor Who that it is. I think most fans still think of Donna’s time in the TARDIS fondly. And while she has absolutely no memory of those times or the person she grew to be and even if she tried to remember her brain could explode… Umm. Actually, terrible example. Her’s might be a fate worse than death. Yeah, Karen, seeing as how Rory was already wiped out of existence once, death might be the most pleasant of exits for a Doctor Who companion. Even worse, you leave however Martha did, which I don’t even remember because no one really talks about her anymore.
Do think Amy needs to die?
