Why is Amy kissing the Doctor on the forehead? Is she leaving him for good? Presumably with Rory — although he's not in these photos, I can't help but notice.

And a tearful hug, which also seems to confirm the "Amy saying goodbye" theory. Is this one of the final scenes of season six?

And then... what certainly looks like the Doctor going into the TARDIS alone. Sigh.

There is another photo from this scene featuring Rory, provided via The Sun. Amy looks sad, Rory has champagne and three glasses, but looks a bit miffed at someone off screen - maybe the Doctor?

I knew it would be a bit of a stretch to see the same Doctor/companion TARDIS Team run for 3 series, so I always had an inkling that the Ponds/Williamses would depart in series 6... but I don't want them to go! I shall miss them terribly if they're really going. Poor Eleven, so much of his life was shaped by Amy, and her's - and Rory's - in turn by The Doctor. The connection they share is almost even deeper than that of Ten and Rose, although it's on a more platonic level than a romantic one. I wonder how their goodbyes will effect him going on?

The girl who waited, and the boy who waited even longer. Awwww, now I'm sad! *sniffle*
