Karen Gillan is leaving Doctor Who next year, but how will Amy (and Rory) be written out?
Doctor Who EP Steven Moffat has already confirmed that Amy and Rory Pond will leave Doctor Who in “heartbreaking” fashion in series 7, but details on the nature of their departure are obviously under close wraps. However, speaking on the BBC’s Graham Norton Show, Karen Gillan admitted that her exit has been in the works for a long time:
“I have known for ages that I am leaving and it’s such a massive relief that it is out and I can speak freely about it.”
“I’m back next year for a few episodes but it’s not actually confirmed when I go.”
Asked whether her character could die, Gillan said:
“I don’t know, it could be possible.”
Would anything else really be ‘heartbreaking’? I guess we’ll see.
