As long as we get some REAL science fiction this time and not warmed up Harry Potter leftovers.... :cylonnono:

The show needs to grow the hell up a bit (again).

As much as I liked the Ponds and the Arc of their story, it is time for a new companion with not much baggage to muck up the story.
I wouldn't mind seeing the Ponds gone by the 4th or 5th episode. It would give the new companion the rest of the season to really establish their role.

I definitely agree we need to get back to some real sci-fi adventure. With all of history and a Universe to travel, get out there writers!

Agreed; particularly about the Ponds.

Loved Amy (one of the BEST companions ever; right up there with Sarah Jane and Rose) but as they say, all good things...
