*SPOILER ALERT!*  Read no further if you don’t wish to know a major development in the next season of Doctor Who, which is scheduled to air in fall 2012.

Showrunner Steven Moffat revealed tonight at the BBC’s preview screening of the 2011 Christmas special, The Doctor, the Widow, and the Wardrobe that as of the seventh season of Doctor Who, the Doctor (Matt Smith) will have a new companion. Fans of Amy Pond (Karen Gillan) and her husband Rory (Arthur Darvill), the Doctor’s companions for the last two seasons, will be dismayed to learn that the couple will be leaving the TARDIS permanently, and in Moffat’s words, “The story is going to come to a heartbreaking end.”

Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go find a tissue.

    I think it’s about time we saw the end of Amy and Rory. I think 2 series is definitely the limit for a companion’s stay (and I’d go so far as to say that 2 is stretching it).
    Bring on the change!
