Just rewatched the first episode-
[Reveal] Spoiler: Click to Expand
Amy could be real for this whole episode. Also, after firing at the astronaut River says "of course"- it was totally her, which is why she knows she won't hit it.

Which is exactly what the BBC have commissioned for each full season since 2005! It is unusual, though, to hear partway through the current run that a new series is coming in the next year.
Of more interest to me would be to know whether they plan a split season like this year or whether Who will only return for a full 13 episodes in the Autumn of 2012. My guess would be the latter option to maximise viewing figures.

Matt Smith may be there next series but what about Amy & Rory?

This article from yesterday about Captain Jack implies they may not be there...

http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox ... eturn.html


With "Doctor Who" officially renewed for a seventh season, and current companions Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill likely not around for the ride, the franchise may soon be placing personals ads for new supporting players.

But why not cull a companion from the current "Who"-verse?

Zap2it caught up with John Barrowman on the set of Starz upcoming "Torchwood: Miracle Day," and the actor told us that a return to the series that introduced his character, Captain Jack Harkness, is never out of the question.

"I've always said that if I'm asked to go back to 'Doctor Who,' I'll go at the drop of a hat," Barrowman tells us. "That's where Captain Jack got his beginnings. And it's already been discussed."

Barrowman says that both "Torchwood" creator Russell T Davies and current "Doctor Who" showrunner Steven Moffat have talked about the possibility of a return for Jack, who's been absent from the series since the 2008 episode "Journey's End." (We're not counting the silent cameo in former Doctor David Tennant's 2010 swan song, The End of Time: Part Two.")

"It's in the cards, but who knows whether it will happen?" says Barrowman, quick to add that his character does have special ties to David Tennant's version of the Doctor. "I like Matt Smith. He brings his own quirkiness to it... When a new Doctor starts, everybody goes along for the journey because they love the show. But then you attach yourself to that Doctor. There's a whole new generation who are now attached to Matt, and rightly so.... but David Tennant is my Doctor."

For now, Barrowman is focused on "Torchwood," which could very well find an extended life on Starz after the upcoming run, but the stateside filming of the British series begs the question of whether or not Barrowman is looking to make a bigger name for himself in America.

"I run myself like a business, and I enjoy the work I do," he says. "Of course I have ambition to work more in the U.S., but I will never turn my back on the U.K. and what I do there."

Scottish born, Barrowman actually spent a lot of his upbringing in American schools. And in 2010, he landed one of his most prominent roles here yet, as a recurring villain on ABC's "Desperate Housewives."

"I've always said that I would never just give up and leave the U.K. to come and seek work over here," he says, "but if work brings me over here, that's a different story. There are plans in the future for me to branch out a little more in this market, because, hey, you need a big swashbuckling gay man to do things, don't ya?"

We do. And we'll have more from Barrowman, including details on "Torchwood: Miracle Day," as we approach the July 8 premiere.

I would be surprised if both Amy and Rory were gone next year. IF Matt Smith is only signed for three seasons, that is.

If he's on for longer, then I could see it.

But if next year is his last year, it would feel odd for him to get a new companion just for his last year.

David Tennant got a new companion every year.

Yeah, but I think the show has been much more focused under Moffat. It's been a singular storyline starting from before his run even started.. beginning back with Silence in the Library/Forest of the Dead really, then continuing through series 5 and 6 now.

Could the River/Melody thing be a ruse to get the Doctor to trust her so she can kill him?

Could the "best man she ever knew" whom she killed be Daddy?
