Another Friday, another set of Doctor Who spoilers! After yesterday’s shots from filming in a spooky setting, set reports from the shoot have begun to surface online. This post contains spoilers.

In what may prove to be the most dramatic and revealing set leak in a long time, we have received confirmation of a character’s return, and information alluding to the demise of another. First of all, we got some more pictures on location from a cemetery near Cardiff, which confirm the return of River Song. While we knew that the character would return in some way, this is the first time we have seen Alex Kingston play the character.

We also have a set report, which outlines some dramatic events that are due to take place in episode five of the upcoming seventh series.

In addition to Matt Smith and Karen Gillan, there was one Weeping Angel and River (Alex Kingston) who seemed to be wearing the same clothes as she did during her first appearance in Series 5…

It’s possible they were filming Amy’s departure… She ran out from the TARDIS and stopped dead in front of the Weeping Angel and called the Doctor. He and River ran out in a hurry – River stopping behind – and the Doctor slowly approached the Angel. He stopped and tried pulling Amy away, but she was ignoring him and slowly walking towards the Angel. The Doctor was screaming, “No, no don’t do this, please!”

River tried pulling the Doctor away, but he carried on. River said, “Come on, there’s nothing we can do.” The Doctor shouted, “NO!” And then went up to Amy (who was still walking towards the Angel). He then entered the TARDIS in anger and sadness, followed by River. Then they cut and just repeated the scene over again.

Arthur Darvill was on also on set, but didn’t participate much. I’m assuming the scene was set to be soon after New York because they had the green screen in front of the TARDIS to begin with and they were all wearing the same clothes!

A second report suggests many fans fears, that Rory will indeed be dying for the final time during his encounter with the Weeping Angels.

According the very reliable Timeboy, Rory will indeed die of old age in the episode.

Rory is sent back in time by a Weeping Angel. When the Doctor and Amy finally locate Rory, he’s an old man. He dies shortly after and Amy is left a widow.

The scene filmed today in the cemetery is thought to be Rory’s funeral, with a wake scene to be filmed soon.

Well, it certainly seems that Steven Moffat is delivering on his promise of a heartbreaking farewell to the Ponds. While it’s slightly difficult to try and piece the two reports into concurrent events, Hypable guesses that Amy is “killing-herself-nicely” by touching an Angel in an attempt to be sent back in time and reunited with Rory. This is unlikely to work – which could present an interesting and emotional finale with Rory, Amy and The Doctor separated by time. If we get to say farewell to River as well, then episode five could be the saddest episode of Who yet.

How do you think Amy and Rory’s departure will play out? What caused the TARDIS to set on fire?

    Crying too much for me to think straight

  • Alice

    Oh Gods no. Why? After all the Ponds have been through, why make them die separately? Why make them die at all? My poor Amy and Rory. Poor River and Doctor, too.

  • Hermitcrabmcgee

    Please. No.

    I haven’t had a good cry since the RTD era. Looking forward to this. Bring it on Moffat, bring it on!

    I think they should die. None of the other recent companions have died so it would be heartbreaking lol As long as they spare River, Im okay with them offing Rory and Amy 

  • Gary65

    Sweet(provided Amy survives).

  • Oscar

    Noooooo…. not Rory… not Roooryyy…

  • Bev Brown

    Everybody has to die at least theyll die nicely if the weeping angel sends her to the past it might not be in the same time as rory

  • Hp-Glee-Hunger-Games-Fan

    Why can’t they die together? They deserve that at least, after all they’ve been put through.

    They’ve killed Rory so many times that I can’t fathom in my mind that this is really it!   So sad to see Amy & Rory go… 

  • Whiggy

    If Rory was aged (presumably after being touched by an angel), then it’s only logical that Amy would find a way back and go with him, and die.

       I think she would be that noble

    we are only guessing at the moment so who knows until autumn i hope the doctor can handle it

  • Jstreis3

    Rory has died way too many times.  Just kill Amy already.

  • http://twitter.com/shadowladyx Amber

     i think they were in some kind of battle in new york against
    weeping angels it may be got damaged then

  • Jael

    Seriously Moffat?  After all the —- Amy and Rory had to go through and they can’t die together?  There goes my theory that Amy and Rory get transported back in time by the Weeping Angels together and that the letter the Doctor was reading is delivered to him by someone close to them during that time.

  • Jstreis3

    This sounds less like a funeral and more like a suicide attempt.  Also, if River is wearing the same clothes from the Byzantium, then I’m sure there will be some kind of link back to that – or maybe it’s just a Moffat Mindf–k

  • Allie

    IF THEY DIE I WILL DIE. lol but i will cry so much :’(

  • http://twitter.com/ClaudioCatino CCMASTER_01

    but she would know that it wouldn’t work if she chose to ‘kill herself’ to be with rory.

    • http://twitter.com/shadowladyx Amber

       shes been hynotised though

      Actually, if I remember right it is possible to be sent back to the same time if you are touched by the same angel.

  • Cherylldawn

    This might be too early to tell, don’t you think? After all, in the last season, the Doctor “dies” in the first episode, but at the end we saw that he survived. Besides, Rory has died soooo many times! Could it be that Moffat is playing with us now?

  • StarBronze175

    River and the Doctor have too much still to go, I doubt it will be her last ep. Poor Amy and Rory, however it happens, it’s going to be sad

    Why would this be the goodbye for River too? She more than likely has more stories with the Doctor — especially judging by how last season ended.
