It’s a collection of Ponds. Get it? Narf.

This week, BBC released a series of mini season prequels called Pond Life in anticipation of TOMORROW’s (Sept. 1, 2012) return of Doctor Who. I’ve gathered them for you below because I’m a nice person. Plus, it gave me the opportunity to watch all of them again. Squee!

They’re light-hearted for the most part. However, there’s a touch of dark in the last one that seems to allude to some marital strife between Mr. and Mrs. Pond. (Again, poor Rory WILLIAMS.) And then, there’s the super big hint on one of the posters on which it appears Amy is holding a wedding ring.

So, yeah. Bumpy roads ahead in Companion-ville.

Pond Life Debuts Monday!

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:

Pond Life debuts at noon on Monday on the BBC’s Doctor Who blog.
