We all know that Amy and Rory Pond, The Doctor’s faithful companions these last few years, are taking their curtain call in the seventh series of Doctor Who this fall, but it seems that showrunner Steven Moffat is changing the details of Amy and Rory’s last ride in the TARDIS in the season’s fifth episode.
Already understood to be a “heartbreaking” finale, Moffat told Digital Spy that he had a second thought as to how it was heartbreaking while writing it. “I completely changed the ending as I was writing it, thinking ‘No, I’ve got it wrong… I’m on the wrong emphasis’ – but it’s a good one and it’s properly emotional,” he said.
But how did the actors feel about it?
“I instantly phoned Matt [when I read the episode] and I was crying and laughing hysterically,” said Amy Pond portrayer Karen Gillan, “because it’s so good!”
Arthur Darvill, AKA: Rory Williams-Pond, added, ”It was like getting the last chapter of the best book you’ve ever read and being really surprised by the ending… and really satisfied. It was pretty emotional.”
As for The Doctor himself, Matt Smith, he says, ”I was very moved, very moved indeed, because not only is it two characters that I love, it’s two actors that I love working with. To see them go – and I think go so beautifully… it’s moving.”
Anxious Who fans can’t wait to see how moving. Or maybe we can…
