Despite previous rumors, it appears that Doctor Who companions Amy and Rory won’t be dying, since Stephen Moffat really isn’t a fan of killing off characters. They will be leaving this coming season for sure, and it will be weepy, but they probably won’t die, which is well enough, because the Doctor would be all moody about it for a couple more seasons.
“Heartbreaking doesn’t mean unhappy,” Moffat says in a recent post. “Wait and see. I mean, it’s parting. It’s parting from someone, and that’s always very hard […] I don’t think the Doctor’s companions should die, I think that spoils the fairy tale a bit.”
It’s also worth pointing out that Moffat, unlike genre contemporaries such as Joss Whedon or J.J. Abrams has no affinity for killing folk:
“I’m not very good at killing people. I don’t like it! I didn’t even know that about myself until Russell [T Davies] pointed out that I’d written six episodes of Doctor Whofor him and I hadn’t killed anybody. Literally hadn’t killed anybody. No one dies in ‘The Empty Child,’ no one dies in ‘Girl in the Fireplace’ except the person who was dead already. I have killed a few, but … I haven’t killed any main characters.” “But that doesn’t mean that I won’t, of course!”
So when Amy and Rory leave, a new companion will take their place. But who? Speculation seems to point to Sophia Myles:
Yes, the woman who placed Madame de Pompadour in “Girl in the Fireplace” and dated David Tennant for a few years.
Doctor Who is currently filming in Spain. Sophia Myles was complaining on Twitterover the weekend about her luggage as she is also in Spain.She was recently interviewed by Doctor Who Magazine star interviewer Benjamin Cook with no mention of when or in what context this interview will appear. The staff of Doctor Who Magazine do appear to know who the next companion will be but are keeping shtum.
Steven Moffat has been tweeting quite a lot to Sophia recently and heavily recommending that his followers follow her as well. They’ve been seeming quite pally of late.
Myles is scheduled to appear at the Doctor Who convention later this month. This would be the perfect time to announce her return to the show.
