Karen Gillan Updates: Over two and a half seasons of Doctor Who, Amy Pond became a very crucial part of the show. She set up the tone for the post-Russell T. Davies and post-Rose Tyler era just as the first companion to Matt Smith’s Eleventh Doctor.
If we compare Amy’s time in the TARDIS with Leela’s, it is that it’s more soap-operatic. The mysterious solving of the love triangle between the doctor, Rory Williams, and her hot solved. Amy got married to Rory, and Doctor got married, but with their time travel daughter. After their demise, the doctor finds out their graves and concluded that they were living happily back in the 20th century.

He said “He told me where the story was at and where it was going and then we kind of together came up with it,” and also added “So it was really pleasant. We had a lovely dinner and just kind of discussed what we both want and what’s going to happen and then came to the decision.”
Amy was seen almost everywhere in the past season and was having a gut feeling, to which she said “It just felt right! I like to go on instinct.”
Gillian insisted on a fulfilling ending for Amy, as her child was kidnapped, and got divorced too, and all over, the situation wasn’t that great to continue with her role.
Gillian also added that when the audience finally met Amy “she was kind of in this lost, transitional period, where she didn’t have a stable life. So I just want to see her get what she wants.” After this Moffat and Gillan thought she wants a life with Rory.
