A Pond Farewell and a New Home for the Holidays [Infographic]
By now I will assume you have seen the latest episode of Doctor Who, The Angels Take Manhattan. If you have not, you may want to stop reading this until you have because this piece may spoil the episode for you. So consider this a spoiler alert (insert cloister bells here).
In this next to last episode of the year 2012 we see the Ponds for the last time. Amy (Karen Gillan) and Rory (Arthur Darvill) are doomed to live the rest of their lives in Earth's past without any further visits from the Doctor… Or we are led to believe at least. Though never say "never" in Doctor Who as it has been proven time and time again.
What did you think of their farewell?
We now must wait for the upcoming Christmas special in which the newest companion for the Doctor played by Jenna-Louise Coleman will be making her home in the TARDIS for holidays. Will it be the same character that the actress portrayed in Asylum of the Daleks (Oswin Oswald)?
Below is an interesting infographic of The History of Doctor Who Companions first published on The Mirror website, reposted here with permission. There are few minor errors included in it and we may get subjective on who we consider to be a "companion" or not, though despite that it is fascinating to look back at where we came from over the last 49 years of Doctor Who companions.
