Matt Smith, who plays the 11th Doctor has been teasing about the Ponds’ departure in an interview with TVGuide.com:
“Fans can expect a gut-wrenching, heart-wrenching time saying goodbye to the Ponds. But also we’ve got dinosaurs, we’ve got Daleks, we’ve got Weeping Angels, we’ve got New York. I mean, it feels in scale as big and bold as it ever has.”
“As we near toward the end of Amy and Rory’s time, it becomes very sad hopefully,” says Matt. “Go back and revisit ‘The Eleventh Hour’ and study it closely — it’s all I will say.”
Matt also commented about how wonderful it was working with Diana Rigg in the Doctor Who Christmas special:
“She’s totally wonderful and has some amazing lines. You just sort of melt when she says [them] ‘cos she’s brilliant. She’s going to be great.”
