UNC_Samurai: The number one rule of Doctor Who is: Never let anything get in the way of telling a good story.

And honestly, the best way to prevent this would have been to write a different and better farewell episode.  The Weeping Angels are the most overrated, one-dimensional monsters I've ever seen.

Optimal_Illusion: Somebody personally send Moffat the link to this page.

/caution! TV Tropes!


It's not that he thinks Doctor Who viewers are morons; it's that he thinks BBC One viewers are morons, and I don't see any reason to ague with him on that one.

I figure the not see in the Ponds again is a bit of a lie. I'm thinking he's got one last twist left for later in the season, where it will be revealed in a River episode that the older Ponds found Mel's in 1970 as a child on the streets of NYC, raise her through her childhood, and then send her to England in the 90s to meet their younger selves (I'm guess she rolled back her age or slow down her aging during this period). It's the final piece of the River story missing, and it allows the Ponds to finally raise their child, so it needs to happen.

They probably shot the footage already as part of the filming for the Angels episode. When they were filming that episode Karen Gillan tweeted that Arthur and Matt had put a picture o Mrs. Doubtfire on her trailer, apparently making fun of her old age makeup. Since she never appeared aged in this episode, and the tweet happened after The Girl Who Waited had already aired, there is apparently a scene of an older Amy we haven't seen yet that was shot buy not yet aired.
