You can stop mourning The Ponds: They're getting their own series

While we're all super excited about Doctor Who's newest trailer and the confirmation that the show's coming back on Sept. 1, we have one more reason to get even more thrilled: The Doctor's (Matt Smith) faithful companions Amy (Karen Gillan) and Rory (Arthur Darville) are—wait for it—getting their very own series!

Doctor Who fans will get to catch up with the Ponds in their own miniseries, titled Pond Life. We don't know about you, but we think it's about time we see what's brewing behind the scenes when the Doctor's not around with our fave married couple/companions in the TARDIS.

The five-part short episodes series will be shown online over five days before Doctor Who's Sept. 1 start date. The short series will be shown from Monday, Aug. 27, on the official BBC Doctor Who website and the BBC1 YouTube channel.

Chris Chibnall, Doctor Who writer and the one who penned Pond Life, said:

"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 them at home and gives us an insight into 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."

We don't know about you guys, but that sounds pretty awesome to our ears, and, frankly, we can't think of a better way to start saying goodbye to our beloved Ponds.

In the meanwhile, you can watch Karen Gillan and Arthur Darville ''introduce the dramatic, funny and fantastic Pond Life.''
