Re: How will the Ponds depart?

The Ponds' death has been so heavily foreshadowed that I think it's a safe bet that nothing will happen to them. The sudden introduction of Brian Williams, on the other hands, reminds me of the old Tom Fontana technique, a.k.a. "make the viewers care about a character right before you kill him". That's why I think that the dad buys it, which leads the Ponds to leave the Doctor.
I completely agree. Fontana was very good at this technique, especially on Oz.
