'Doctor Who' Steven Moffat doubts Amy, Rory return: "I have no plans"

By
Steven Moffat has appeared to rule out a Doctor Who return for the characters Amy (Karen Gillan) and Rory (Arthur Darvill).

The BBC sci-fi drama's showrunner is quoted by Blogtor Who as saying that he has "no plans" to bring the two companions back.

"You could never eliminate the possibility of dream sequences and flashbacks," Moffat acknowledged. "But will the Doctor see them again? No."

Moffat added that he was keen to give married couple Amy and Rory a "proper ending" when he penned their final episode, 2012's 'The Angels Take Manhattan'.

"Bringing back things just gives you sequel-itis," he said. "Just end it and get out. Heaven knows if they'll appear in some form of flashback - I have no plans to do that I have to say - but the story of Amy and The Doctor is definitively over."

Arthur Darvill previously told Digital Spy that he would "never say never" to reprising the role of Rory if he was asked back.

"I'm very loyal to Doctor Who - I saw Steven Moffat recently and I think he's brilliant," said the actor. "He's one of those people that if he ever asked me to do anything, I'd do it."

Doctor Who returns to BBC One and BBC America on Saturday, March 30 with 'The Bells of St John', written by Steven Moffat.
