companions

If ya didn’t already know Matt Smith, Karen Gillan, Arthur Darvill and the rest of the Doctor Who crew are in New York City right now filming. In these exclusive images snapped by Katya Ivask and Theodore Stepanoff for io9 you can see the Doctor enjoying a picnic in Central Park with Mr. and Mrs. Companion. Is this one of last happy moments the three will spend together? Season seven marks the end for The Ponds’ travels with the Doctor and it’s been rumored to be extremely final for one of them. Oh, and heartbreaking, can’t even count how many times Steven Moffat‘s reminded us of that.

These photos are heartwarming but make me all the more depressed when I think of saying goodbye to Amy and Rory. I say, eff the haters, these two are my favorite Doctor Who companions and they’ll be deeply missed.

Charting the life of a time traveler can’t be easy. Especially when he’s prone to jumping to and fro throughout our world’s timeline as well as his own. For example, the Doctor, the 900+, mad-cap, genius time traveler in a blue box from BBC’s Doctor Who. Revitalized for a whole new generation in 2005 the series has already racked up a mind-boggingly amount of adventures in time and space. How are we supposed to keep track?

Ta-da, the internet and it’s constant need to have things visually explained comes to the rescue! We’ve found an infographic which makes sense of the Doctor’s convulated (recent) history. This graphic details adventures with his companions from his 9th, 10th and 11th incartnations. Could you imagine trying to map out his timeline for his entire existance as we know it?!

In the meantime, while we wait for the ultimate infographic of the Doctor’s life , check out this fantastic timeline from Nathanthenerd. Please note the key on the left, this map would be jibberish without it.

I love the addition of River Song’s timeline, represented in the pink. It still hurts when I really try to wrap my mind around her and the Doctor’s relationship. Ow.
