It’s been eight years since the Eleventh Doctor brought the Ponds into our lives, and it’s been five even longer and depressive years since they left us. So, if you’re missing Amy and Rory as much as I am, here are 6 times they showed us what true love looks like.

But the best thing about Amy’s love for Rory is just that – a love just for Rory. She speaks her own language of love, and when it comes to Rory, there’s no denying when she’s speaking to him. Like that time he rescued their baby and she assured him a crying Roman with a baby was “definitely cool.”
Series 6 “A Good Man Goes to War”
And finally, you can’t be wholly invested in the love story that is Amy and Rory if these pictures don’t unravel you. As much as their story was about just the two of them, they weren’t truly the Ponds without the rest of their family:
