Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill to leave Doctor Who

Shes know the doctor since she was a little girl.

She’s traveled in space and time with him.

Then her boyfriend (now husband) joined her and The Doctor on their adventures…

But life in the Tardis will come to end for Amy Pond and Rory Williams next series, as Steven Moffat confirmed at a press screening Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill will leave the show in a “heartbreaking end”, halfway through series 7 (or 33 if your old school!).

Fear not though, Matt Smith‘s 11th Doctor will be there for the whole season, and it’s thought has signed on at least until the show’s 50th anniversary in 2013. With Amy and Rory gone, The Doctor will also be looking for a new (as yet, uncast) companion to get into daring adventures with.

Although i’m sad to see Karen & Arthur go, i’m not sure how much more you could get away with putting Amy & Rory through! Plus, changing companions has always been one of the ways Doctor Who reinvents itself and keeps things fresh. Looking forward to see who The Doctor manages to pick up on his travels next!

Doctor Who, series 7 (33), is not back till Autumn 2012, however you can see The Doctor in “The Doctor, The Widow and The Wardrobe” on Christmas Day, BBC ONE at 7pm.
