Amy Pond will never return to 'Doctor Who'.
The Time Lord's popular companion - played by Scottish actress Karen Gillan - won't be returning to the sci-fi drama for a special episode to mark the show's 50th anniversary next year, contrary to speculation.
'Doctor Who' creator Steven Moffat insisted: "Amy and Rory won't be back. At the very beginning, when I was talking to Karen, I said, 'Let's make it a proper ending'.
"Heaven knows if they will appear in some flashback - I have no plans - but the story of Amy and Rory is over."
Karen will be replaced by new sidekick Jenna-Louise Coleman, 26, when she makes her debut in the Christmas special and Steven is confident she will bring something new to the show as she complements Matt Smith perfectly.
He told The Mirror newspaper: "She gives us a more grown-up Doctor.
"He was Amy's raggerty Doctor, now he's the mysterious man from space for Jenna."
Amy's emotional exit from the BBC One show last month saw her be sent back in time by a Weeping Angel to find her husband Rory.
