Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill, who play companions Amy Pond and Rory Williams on Doctor Who, will be leaving the series after the upcoming season, head writer and executive producer Steven Moffat announced Thursday.
"The Ponds will be rejoining us next series. But the final days of the Ponds are coming," Moffat said at a news conference for Doctor Who's upcoming Christmas special, according to the UK Mirror. "I am not telling you when and I won't...
The constant threat of death may be part of a Doctor Who companion's job description, but for Rory Williams, it's not just a threat. He's died, or at least appeared to die, so many times in the series, he's been compared to South Park's Kenny.
"I think it's gotten a bit much for him, all the dying," Arthur Darvill, who plays Rory, told reporters on a call to promote Saturday's Doctor Who episode, airing at 9/8c on BBC America. "I kept seeing it as a running joke. A lot of times it happens because he puts himself in the way of danger for other people. He's a hero, he's a bumbling hero. I have no idea if it's going to keep happening. I personally hope that Rory just stops dying."
Only in the world of Doctor Who can the time traveler you've seen as a maternal figure end up being your future, grown-up daughter.
That's the rather absurd reality that Amy Pond (Karen Gillan) faced about the mysterious River Song (Alex Kingston) in the June midseason finale and will continue to cope with when the show returns with the episode "Let's Kill Hitler" on Saturday at 9/8c on BBC America. "After that big revelation...

The Doctor Who panel at Comic-Con offered the opportunity for fans to get a taste of what's to come when the show returns to BBC America on Saturday, Aug. 27 at 9/8c.
Before debuting the show's new trailer — which teases the returning episode "Let's Kill Hitler," among others — series stars Matt Smith and Karen Gillan gave a few behind-the-scenes insights into what it's like to play the time-travelling Doctor and his companion...
Doctor Who star Matt Smith says the show's new season will push boundaries with its storytelling. But it's pushing geographic boundaries as well.
For the first time, some of the adventures of the Doctor and his companions — River Song (Alex Kingston) and married couple Amy (Karen Gillan) and Rory (Arthur Darvill) — were filmed in America.

The first part of a two-part opener will air at 9/8c and will find the team in North America for the first time. The Doctor (Matt Smith), Amy (Karen Gillan) and Rory (Arthur Darvill) will be on a secret ...
It's Christmas in Who-ville! Charles Dickens pretty much invented our modern concept of Christmas and now his fellow Brits are messing with it. Doctor Who: A Christmas Carol, the latest in a series of crazy-popular holiday specials, will find the kindly, time-traveling doc, played by Matt Smith, working some Ghost of Christmas Past-style magic. The plot: Harry Potter favorite Sir Michael Gambon guests as a Scrooge-like nasty, Kazran Sardick, who does his evil best to destroy the spirit of Christmas in an interplanetary city called Sardicktown. In the ultimate humbug, a space liner carrying newlyweds Amy and Rory (series regulars Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill) is about to crash there, and the all-powerful Sardick will do nothing to help them. To the rescue — and down the chimney — comes the Doctor to set the jerk straight...
Million Dollar Money Drop
Million Dollar Money Drop (Monday, 8/7c, Fox)
This is how game-show sensations are born — and Fox certainly hopes this will be their version of Who Wants To Be a Millionaire. Airing Monday-Thursday this week (Tuesday and Wednesday's installments air at 9/8c, with a two-hour finale on Thursday), this game, hosted by comedian Kevin Pollak, is pretty simple. Contestants are asked multiple-choice questions with a million dollars in cash on the line. They put the cash on the answers they think are correct — one must always be left blank — and if they're wrong, the cash they've distributed on the wrong answer disappears down a chute. Panic sets in pretty quickly. The two-hour premiere goes head-to-head with the finale of NBC's holiday hit The Sing-Off.
