‘Doctor Who’ Season 7: Details of Amy & Rory’s Final Episode

Doctor Who Angel take Manhattan details Doctor Who Season 7: Details of Amy & Rorys Final Episode

Details are starting to trickle in about the day loyal fans of the BBC’s hit space odyssey Doctor Who have been dreading – the day when we say a finale goodbye to The Doctor’s faithful wedded companions, Amy Pond (Karen Gillan) and Rory Williams (Arthur Darvill). In a two-part story written by series showrunner Steven Moffat, ‘The Angels Take Manhattan’ sees The Doctor and Amy race against time through the streets of Manhattan to save Rory’s life as statues throughout New York start coming to life around them.

The episode reunites The Doctor with his guns-a-blazing bride River Song (Alex Kingston) – whose skills will probably be needed more than ever and will mark the return of fan-favorite villains The Weeping Angels. While traveling with the Doctor has shown the beloved couple many wondrous sights and adventures, it has also taken a hefty toll, including the abduction of their only child – which rendered Amy unable to have more kids and almost took the their marriage with it.

Despite all they have already lost to their astonishing journeys in the TARDIS, is seems Rory and Amy may pay the ultimate price – their lives. In a recent interview, Matt Smith discussed Series 7 and the exit of his long time co-stars:

What’s really interesting about these next five episodes… it deals with the fall of the Ponds and the demise of those two great companions that the Doctor is hugely, hugely attached to and had such a significant impact on him as a character and for me as an actor. So that’s bound to be an event that flips his universe massively.”

Rumors of Amy and Rory’s death have been buzzing around for awhile now, and Smith’s use of the word “demise” sure isn’t helping much. True the word may be up for interpretation, but it strongly suggests that things won’t end well for the treasured lovers.

Moffat adds a bit of fuel to the death rumor wildfire by saying:

[The Doctor] becomes a slightly different man. He even dresses differently. We are going to do the story properly of the Doctor having lost a friend and making a new one. We’re not taking that lightly.”

The new friend Moffat is referring to is the new companion played by actress Jenna Louise Coleman – who debuted in the season 7 opener ‘Asylum of the Daleks’ as the ill-fated Oswin Oswald; She’s expected to return to the series in the upcoming Christmas Special as Clara. Moffat is not saying exactly how that will happen, but after the shocking twist at the end of “Asylum of the Daleks” and the “heartbreaking” loss of Amy and Rory, it will take some clever writing to reintroduce Coleman back into the series.

  1. Im starting to get annoyed with doctor who… its like EVERYONE, and i mean EVERYONE tries to over exaggerate. In the first Dalek episode that guest just over exaggerated everything and it got cheesy real fast. Even Rory’s dad was the same, its just like why do they keep doing it? The Doctor does it and that all we need.

    I wish Tennant was still on, he was the best Doctor. But i find his reason for leaving good enough, he wanted to leave on a high note, the tip of his career as the Doctor and i don’t blame him, already for me Matt is getting repetitive, i like him and i probably feel that way because every character seem to do what he does. David could have had another couple years easily but the writer and whole team left and David left him them so it was an end of an era.

    Rant over, i still love Doctor who but so far i have not been interested as much.

  2. They aren’t gonna die, Moffat doesn’t have the balls. I bet they become Angels or something. About to contradict myself, but I can see Amy and Rory being teleported back in time by angels, growing old together and dying back in modern day like the victims of the first angel episode did, and there will be some reason the Doctor cannot go back and fetch them.

    They will never kill off a big character in DW forever. Its to dark a moment for a show that is largely viewed by kids.

    • I thought they’d get zapped back in time also.
      The doctor can’t go back for them because the angel’s have already fed of the energy explained in the first angels ep. and because they’ve already fed the timeline is locked?

      Makes sense, keeps them from actually killing them, but has a finality to it

    • Ok they can be killed and the show has killed off companions before in the past. All of which has a great effect on the Doctor take for example Adric, the death of whom haunted the doctor for many years.
      So in short yes he can kill companions….

    • Honestly if they die I will literaly kill myself because they were the best companions and just I preferido david tenet u mean mat smith isn’t bad just not my favorite I got upset when There was no more david but killing Amy and Sorry that would ruin everything. I mean i figured they would have to leave at some point but killing them you can’t do that easily without fans being upset because in my opion they were the best. Kill them you kill tons of fans with it so honestly nobody is winning unless the new companion us just as bad ass as all the companions put together. I mean. that won’t be easy but you know sh*t like this happens all the time and in the end it was for the better. So you never know

    • Its funny looking at all these comments now… yup you said he didnt have the balls but he did…. he is an EVIL human being they need a new writer

  3. River song got killed off before the current doctor got his foot in the door. I wouldn’t be surprised if Amy is killed offtoo. Sooner or later they have to send River off to the pass to die. I hope we see it happen this season.

    • They’ve already done that. In Night And The Doctor, he sees River for the last time before she goes to the Library. Where she dies.

  4. ” In a two-part story written by series showrunner Steven Moffat, ‘The Angels Take Manhattan’”

    Fairly certain it is just a single episode.

  5. A two-part story? What? There are no two-parters this season.

    I can’t wait to see how Clara Oswin connects to Oswin Oswald.

    • I said the same thing 5 hours ago. Yet it hasn’t been changed.

      • this weekends episode looks good. but i am more looking forward to the last two. the return of both UNIT and the Weeping Angels!!! I wonder if Martha is still working for UNIT? or did her and Mickey go off and do their own thing?

        • It seems to me that the Doctor has actually slipped into an alternate universe overall w/ the explosion of the Tardis and all the rips in the fabric of space and time in season 1 (of Matt Smith.) Though it hasn’t been explained, even though the doctor (in Kill Hitler) has a run through w/ his past companions (Rose Tyler up as the voice interface), Amy didn’t remember when the Daleks and Cybermen attempted to take over the Earth at the same time.

  6. There was a clip of the dr shouting at River saying ‘you’ve changed history, do you know what you have done?’

  7. I hope they don’t die.
