Doctor Who Season Seven spoilers!
In tonight's press screening of The Doctor, The Widow and the Wardrobe Stephen Moffat has confirmed what we'd already expected - that the upcoming season will wrap up the Pond's storyline and will introduce a whole new companion. When responding to questions after the screening Moffat said "The final days of the Ponds are coming during the next series. Then the Doctor will meet a new friend".
We knew Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill had signed up for the seventh season, but also that it wasn't for the full run and this now confirms that we'll see the end of their travels with Matt Smith's Doctor. Moffat also confirmed that Alex Kingston would return as River Song, but kept us in the dark on the circumstances and possible storylines.
We now have a new round of casting rumours and wishes to look forward to as the new companion is chosen.
The seventh season of Doctor Who will be screening in autumn 2012...
