If you’re sad that Amy Pond and Rory Williams are departing Doctor Who this season, the news that BBC is releasing a five part mini-series about the Ponds will please you. I know I’m happy to get as much of the couple as I can get; I’ll miss having them around. The story will take place over short webisodes and will focus on the every day life of the Ponds; it is thusly titled Pond Life. Viewers will see what they’ve been up to since the end of the last season. From The Guardian:
Writer Chris Chibnall said: “Pond Life provides us with a lovely opportunity to catch up with Amy and Rory since we saw them at the end of the last series. ”It opens with them at home and gives us an insight into just what happens when the Doctor drops in and out of their lives.
“Travelling with the Doctor is one of the greatest things you can do, but it’s fun to spend a few moments looking at the chaos he can also bring.”
The story will air in the days preceding the September 1st premiere of season 7 of Doctor Who. You’ll be able to catch them starting on August 27 on the official Who website.
