Lots of fans and media types have been speculating for a while that we will witness the death of Amy Pond in the upcoming series of Doctor Who, but Steven Moffat has spoken out this week and dismissed the rumours. In a roundabout sort of way at least. When asked about killing off characters he had this to say..
"In the old series, they did off a couple of them. I'm not saying we'll never do it, but it's not that kind of a show. It's not gritty. It's kind of a lovely, life-affirming, optimistic show without a cynical bone in its body. It's almost odd when you see it in competition with things like Battlestar Galactica, and you think, 'Well that's not us at all.' We're the story of a wonderful man from space who can travel in a telephone box! But I'm not guaranteeing I won't kill someone in the future!"Now Moff isnt afraid to tell us the odd porky, so perhaps we can never really be too sure about how serious he is being, but Matt Smith has also spoken out to say that he wouldnt like to see the character be killed and will make it his 'personal mission' to make sure she stays. So despite the rumours, it would seem that Amy is safe. At least for the time being.
