Ponds ‘die in hot Tardis’

DOCTOR Who assistants Amy and Rory Pond are to die after being left locked in a poorly-ventilated Tardis.

The intrepid companions will be seen expiring this weekend after the Doctor ‘nips out to get some fags’.

But it is a hot, sunny day outside on the planet Zartan and the the Time Lord forgets to wind down the windows on the Tardis.

Show runner Stephen Moffatt said: “It’s a sad, cautionary tale. And so sadly ironic, of course, given their aquatic surname.”
