Steven Moffat has appeared to rule out a Doctor Who return for the characters Amy (Karen Gillan) and Rory (Arthur Darvill).
The BBC sci-fi drama’s showrunner is quoted by Blogtor Who as saying that he has “no plans” to bring the two companions back.
“You could never eliminate the possibility of dream sequences and flashbacks,” Moffat acknowledged. “But will the Doctor see them again? No.”
Moffat added that he was keen to give married couple Amy and Rory a “proper ending” when he penned their final episode, 2012′s ‘The Angels Take Manhattan’.
“Bringing back things just gives you sequel-itis,” he said. “Just end it and get out. Heaven knows if they’ll appear in some form of flashback – I have no plans to do that I have to say – but the story of Amy and The Doctor is definitively over.”
Arthur Darvill previously told Digital Spy that he would “never say never” to reprising the role of Rory if he was asked back.
“I’m very loyal to Doctor Who – I saw Steven Moffat recently and I think he’s brilliant,” said the actor. “He’s one of those people that if he ever asked me to do anything, I’d do it.”
Doctor Who returns to BBC One and BBC America on Saturday, March 30 with ‘The Bells of St John’, written by Steven Moffat.

Doctor Who head honcho, Steven Moffat has ruled any possibility of show favourite, Amy Pond making a return to the show.
Fans of the show will know how Amy, and her onscreen husband, Rory (Arthur Darvil), were written out of the hugely successful BBC sci-fi show earlier this year, with former Emmerdale actress, Jenna-Louise Coleman stepping in to replace Amy, played by Karen Gillan, as the Time lord, Matt Smith’s, new side kick.
The pair departed the epic drama last month, in an emotional episode The Angels Take Manhattan, during which Amy wasn’t killed but let a sinister Weeping Angel blast her back in time to find husband Rory.
This left fans hopeful that the door may have been left open for Gillan to return and reprise her flame haired companion’s role, but today Steven Moffat, the genius behind the series, has ruled that out as a possibility.
Speaking to the Sun newspaper, Steven said: “At the very beginning, when I was talking to Karen, I said ‘Let’s make it a proper ending’.
“It’s better to just end it and get out. The story of Amy and Rory is absolutely, definitively over.
“You can never eliminate the possibility of dream sequences or flashbacks. But will the Doctor see them again? No.
“Heaven knows if Amy and Rory will appear in some form of flashback.
“But I have no plans, I have to say.”
