What a cliffhanger last week! Usually you can predict how Doctor Who’s going to turn out with reliability – but I honestly have no idea what could possible happen next. Here’s this week’s roundup of the latest Doctor Who news. Also, as this is the final episode of the series, this will most likely be the last This Week in Doctor Who until there is enough news to warrant it.

Big Bang Spoilers from Blogtor Who
Here are some Spoilers for the Big Bang put together by the folks over at Blogtor Who:
- Matt stated that his call sheet throughout shooting the previous 12 episodes included additional scenes for the finale. “When we were doing Flesh & Stone, I’d get to the end of the day and realise that I’d got to do this extra sequence that I had no idea about. All I know is I’ve got to be quite concerned about Amy.”
- When asked “Is Amy OK?” Matt says: “She’s dead but Rory is still around. That’s all I can tell you.”
- When asked about River Song, Matt comments: “There is a a scene near the end of the episode where River Song and The Doctor have a little chat about the exact nature of their relationship”
- Filming on Christmas Special starts on July 12. It’s the “most Christmassy special there’ll ever be” with an equally special cast list.
