‘Doctor Who’ Showrunner Steven Moffat promises “A fitting end to the mighty era of the Ponds!”

Steven Moffat “proud” of companions Amy and Rory ending.

With only two more episodes left of Amy and Rory in ‘Doctor Who,’ Head Writer and Showrunner Steven Moffat has said that he feels “very proud” of their final outing.

The Ponds – played by Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill – will make their final appearance in the BBC sci-fi series in the mid-series finale ‘The Angels Take Manhattan,’ which sees a return of the Weeping Angels.

Steven Moffat said: “All stories have to end, and painful though that is, the most important thing about a story is how it finished, I had over a year’s warning to get this sorted out, and I’m very proud of what we’ve done. A fitting end to the mighty era of the Ponds!”

Moffat also revealed why he chose to set the episode in New York: “There was something about [returning monsters] the Weeping Angels and New York that just seemed to make sense to me, And I thought of the story for this episode while in New York.

“It’s always good to find a new form for [the Angels] and we’ve got little cherubs this time. I had loads of ideas for the Weeping Angels on both the previous stories that I never got anywhere close to using, so it was good to find the opportunity.”
