Doctor Who: Two Years Ago Today

Two years ago today, 29 September 2012, we said goodbye to beloved companions Amy and Rory (played by Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill). They traveled with the Eleventh Doctor in series five through the first half of season seven (Rory joining up towards the end of the fifth series).

Despite the marital troubles the Ponds had all throughout series 7A, Amy ultimately chooses to leave the Doctor to be with Rory, stuck in the past when he is touched by a Weeping Angel. It is one of the most heartbreaking companion exits in Doctor Who, but ultimately successful in rounding out Amy's character at the very end.

Farewell, Ponds.

Can it be two years already?
