Well I'm kinda glad they didn't actually film something like that, because it is very Blink. That said my throat did get a little tight when Arthur was reading, and it's sweet to think they ended up adopting.

Re: The Final Final Fate Of The Ponds

Lovely ending for Brian Williams, but I do wish it was filmed despite its similarity to "Blink" (and likewise Back to the Future II).

P.S. managed to do what "The Angels Take Manhattan" didn't do -- it made me cry.

I liked that more than the actual ending we got.

At the time, the episode didn't do that for me either. But I do tear up a little whenever I catch a gif or clip of those final moments. And this did it for me as well.

I really will miss Matt, Karen and Arthur together.

Re: The Final Final Fate Of The Ponds

It surprised me that I could play that clip. So many of the videos and audio clups from the BBC DW site is blocked outside of the UK.

Great that we had "Rory" narrating the letter. Makes the clip a bit more official. And as Allyn Gibson said, I found it rather more moving than the aired material.

Sincerely,

Bill

Re: The Final Final Fate Of The Ponds

Quite nice really. A shame they couldn't have filmed it for CiN, or tagged it onto the Christmas Special.

Now pardon me, I just realized I need to do some dusting in here.

Re: The Final Final Fate Of The Ponds

I've been trying to come up with an American actor that I could credibly see as Rory's adopted son. I keep coming back to Michael Keaton.

Brian probably hasn't met River, has he? You know...his other grandchild. That could be a fun little side story -- the adventures of River Song and Anthony Pond.
