As the series moves into its seventh modern season later this year, it has been confirmed new episodes will deliver the last days of the Ponds, with Karen Gillan (Amy Pond) and Arthur Darvill (Rory) making their final voyage with The Doctor (Matt Smith). Today, a leaked teaser image has come online that, despite some early speculation that it might be fan-made, appears to be an official promo shot that will accompany a brand-new season seven trailer set for release online tomorrow.
Allegedly from the premiere, “Asylum of the Daleks,” you can see The Doctor and Amy strike a pose somewhat reminiscent of George Perez iconic cover to “Crisis on Infinite Earths” #7. That may be more than just a coincidence as the episode is said to include every iteration of a Dalek that has ever appeared in Who‘s 50 year history.
The good news for Amy fans, however, is that Gillan is confirmed to appear in the first five episodes of season seven and, more likely than not, the below image is not suggestive of her final fate.
UPDATE: The BBC has released the official version and we’ve updated the below image. Click for a larger version and check back tomorrow for the full trailer:
