SPOILER ALERT! If you want to be a blank canvas when the new series of Doctor Who rolls around then look away now.

Reports from The Sun today reveal that in episode seven of the new series, the Doctor’s new assistant Amy Pond, played by Karen Gillan, will be sporting a baby bump. Ooh er.

The story has been penned by Men Behaving Badly writer Simon Nye but won’t be part of the overall series because…it’s all a dream. Wait, didn’t we use that storytelling device when we were about 12?

That’s right, the episode will see Amy having a dream where she’s with child but apparently can’t tell what’s reality and what’s a dream. Sounds like well worn ground to me but with a Timelord twist it’ll probably be riveting stuff.

Oh, and no, the Doctor is not the father. He hasn’t hit puberty yet.
