You're right ... my mistake. But I would still prefer this style of ending to most other possibilities.

I've got a feeling that he'll do that, too. Of course it won't be nearly as good. He just can't seem to let go of the "Girl Who Waited" theme.

It was the first story I listened to ever, so I had no idea what was happening.

I'm sorry.

But I assure you that what I said is the tip of an unbelievably huge iceberg.

Is that a story about Pre-Historic Dogs or Trees?

I too, believe their departure will be related to Angel Time Travel and seeing them "too Late"

Rory will be sent back in time, and the Doctor and Amy find his gravestone. Thus, Rorys death is a set point and cant be altered, but the Doctor CAN deliver the wife to her husband, and let them live life together.

Neither. It's a Futurama episode from season four and ends thusly:

Fair enough. I look forward to it nonetheless (but I still have a ways to because my next story is The Next Life, the final Divergent Universe story).

As for the topic, I agree with most that it'll most likely involve the Weeping Angels sending them (or one of them, thus forcing The Doctor to take the other back, too) back in time to live out their days. To top it off, The Doctor will be forced to visit Brian and tell them they'll never come back but will live a full life. The "perfect" bookending to The Doctor's conversation with Brian about companions in "The Power of Three."

Re: How will the Ponds depart?

Matt Smith has been quoted as saying ""What Steven has written in this Angels episode is perfect. You know, there's something that harks back to ''The Eleventh Hour,'' that Steven had thought of about two-and-a-half years ago! Isn't that remarkable, that it's been in Steven's head for that long?"

So, what clues are there in "The Eleventh Hour" that might give us a hint?

Re: How will the Ponds depart?

The explanation of having the Angels shoot them back in time makes sense, but it fails to account for one or more deaths that SM has promised. I recall an interview way back where he said something to the effect of "not everyone makes it out alive, and I mean it this time."

I thought that it would be interesting if The Doctor keeps his promise to Brian and saves Amy and Rory, but Brian ends up dying in the adventure. Whoopsies!

DOCTOR: Sorry about your dad. And err, your only child.

Re: How will the Ponds depart?

I think we're partially right. The Angels will take Rory first, back in time to New York. But it won't be just Rory's tombstone the Doctor finds - it's Rory's AND Amy's. And they both die the same day - the day Rory was sent back to. The Angels need the time energies released by their demise to accomplish their larger plan for New York. And Amy won't consider abandoning the man who waited 2,000+ years for her to his fate alone, so it's off to 1930's New York we go...

That's gonna be the real drama/heartbreak of this episode. Amy and Rory's deaths are a fixed point in time. Though the Doctor and River will do their damnedest, by episode's end it will become crystal clear there is nothing...absolutely NOTHING...they can do to save them. To quote Tony Stark, "There is NO version of this where you come out on top."

Amy and Rory's final challenge, therefore, will be to sacrifice their lives in a way that denies the Angels what they want. And River's challenge will be to help the shattered Doctor pick up the pieces of his soul and move on without them - as well as her own.

Re: How will the Ponds depart?

Well, seeing as the story is set in New York, the most satisfying result IMO would be to have them zapped back in time to 1969. They then meet and adopt their own daughter, newly regenerated, before relocating back to Leadworth under false names. They then get a chance to raise her properly, eventually passing from old age after a long and happy life together.
