Karen Gillan Leaving or Staying in Doctor Who? (Spoilers from "The God Complex.")
I am not sure about anyone else but I was surprised by what appears to be the exit of Amy and Rory at the end of "The God Complex." I see the following options.
Amy and Rory are taking just one episode off - this is probably the most likely as they are still part of the whole Impossible Astronaut storyline. I can't imagine they will be gone for long
Amy and Rory will not be in the Christmas special - The Doctor does well on his own for the Christmas specials and so this could happen. There may be other clues to this online but I won't say anything.
Amy and Rory will only be part time companions next season. This is highly likely given all the rumors and news of late. I got the impression in Karen's statement that she would be back next season that it would not be for every story. Still, the two of them work well with the Doctor and I personally would rather them go another season with perhaps better stories and less huge conspiracies and multiple times dying.
Amy and Rory are here to stay - also a big chance of this happening although I would think they won't be in every episode next year.
