Whovians everywhere have even more reason to rejoice! Not only is the beloved Doctor coming back into our lives on Sept. 1, but a new web series, Pond Life, will begin airing on MONDAY (August 27)!
Pond Life has five parts and will feature Amelia Pond (Karen Gillan), Rory Williams (Arthur Darvill), and the Doctor (Matt Smith).
“Pond Life provides us with a lovely opportunity to catch-up with Amy and Rory since we saw them at the end of the last series,” said Chris Chibnal, the series’ writer, on BBC’s Doctor Who blog. “It opens with the Ponds at home and gives us an insight in to just what happens when the Doctor drops in and out of their lives. Travelling with the Doctor is one of the greatest things you can do, but it’s fun to spend a few moments looking at the chaos he can also bring.”
Slight aside: It’s still weird to me that these two are generally referred to as the “Ponds.” Poor Rory Williams; doomed to death so often without even the dignity of his own name!
Here’s an introduction to Pond Life from Gillan and Darvill:
