BBC announce online Doctor Who mini-adventure "Pond Life" featuring Matt Smith, Karen Gillan, Arthur Darvill
Titled Pond Life, the five-part series focuses on Amy and Rory and the chaos the Doctor creates when he drops in and out of their lives.
Pond Life will be available on the official Doctor Who website and the BBC YouTube channel each day at noon between Monday 27 August and Friday 31 August. An omnibus edition of all the episodes will be shown on the BBC Red Button on Saturday 1 September.
Chris Chibnall, Writer, says: "Pond Life provides us with a lovely opportunity to catch-up with Amy and Rory since we saw them at the end of the last series. It opens with the Ponds at home and gives us an insight in to just what happens when the Doctor drops in and out of their lives. Travelling with the Doctor is one of the greatest things you can do, but it's fun to spend a few moments looking at the chaos he can also bring."
Caroline Skinner, Executive Producer, says: “Chris has written a beautiful, heartfelt and wickedly funny piece about the adventures the Ponds have been having with the Doctor since we last saw them on-screen. It's not long till the series itself will be back with a vengeance - but in the meantime Pond Life is a truly heartwarming piece about our best-loved companions and their madcap relationship with their raggedy Doctor.”
The mini-adventure features Matt Smith, Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill. It is written by Chris Chibnall and directed by Saul Metzstein.
