Talk about dropping on bomb!

New companion?!

Update via Bleeding Cool:

Moffat and Matt Smith said the following after a screening for the Doctor Who Christmas Special:


Amy and Rory will be rejoining us next series and joining the Doctor back on the Tardis, but the final days of the Ponds are coming – and during the next series. I’m not telling you when and certainly not telling you how. But that story is going to come to a heartbreaking end.
There are only so many more adventures with the lovely Amy and the lovely Rory. So that story, next series, during the series will be over. And then the Doctor is going to meet a new friend – and I’m not going to tell you anything about he, she or it!.. Who knows? It is Doctor Who. There’s a universe of people to choose from.


We’ve had the most incredible journey. We took over the show and we really had to hold hands and help each other through it in many ways. So it’s very disappointing, but one has to remember that this show is about change and regeneration and that’s what galvanises it and moves it forward. It’s about looking forward, always.

The Doctor Who Christmas Special, “The Doctor, The Witch and The Wardrobe” airs Christmas Day at 7pm ET on BBC One.
