Goodbye, Amy Pond

My favourite redheaded Scots lass is leaving one of my favourite shows...

(Yes. You've guessed correctly. I simply don't have the time to write up a Blog post of normal length. I have finally got back into the flow of writing and everything is going really well after a few weeks of publicity and travel. It looks like I'll be getting Kingdom of the Wicked finished in time after all. Yay!)

Amy has quickly become my favourite Dr Who companion ever. I'll miss her spark, her accent, her pout, that policewoman's uniform...

Goodbye Amy...

And hello Jenna-Louise Coleman, who will be taking over as companion at Christmas.

All you Dr Who fans out there will know why this deserved a Blog post of its own.

And now, I'm going back to writing.

You have to be a DOctor Who fan to get it. Hi DEREK! i can finally talk to you, now that my comment is closer to the top! HIII. Please come to SOuth Africa for a signing sometime. I know its a small place, but there are some die hard skul-fans here, and there aren't lions roaming around like someone people think :)

HI DEREK! *hugs* Glad to hear you are doing well with your writing! YAY!
I have not seen Dr. Who yet. But I have netflix now (YAY) and I will start watching it soon.
I wonder who long Amy was on the show for and why she is leaving. Hopefully its a good career move for her. I have seen to often of actors leaving an extremely popular show to try and move onto other things but it does not work out and they loose their fame. (cause they are not in any show, movies, or anything anymore.)
I'm sure though, that this new person will do just as well. I don't think they would hire just anyone to take over. :P

BananaMinion said...

Woohoo!!! Im not a dr. Who fan but im so excited Kingdom of the Wicked is coming out on time!!!!! Hey Derek....do you think you could get the publishers to release it early please?!?!?

Benjamiist said...

Hi just wondering when will you you be do some signing in Dublin?

-Ben

Colleen McGuigan said...

One of my friends said there's a rumor that Amy and Rory are leaving after an "incident with the Weeping Angels". Of course, the shock and sadness of the news was dampened when my friend's auto-correct had changed "weeping" to "wrapping".

Flame Phoenix said...

sparky..

Flame Phoenix said...

Not enough for me to wed you. I still want to go out and all, but i just can't marry, not after what happend.

im sorry.

2) because my friend threw my pencil case up to the front of the room, and i asked a girl to get it for me.

3) because i looked out the window, when the cartaker came by on his lawnmower,( everyoen else did aswell) but i got in trouble!
