GREY MATTERS: DOCTOR WHO's sublime study of grief, death and transfiguration continues to captivate its viewers

On a recent episode of "The Graham Norton Show," the genial goofball host was plainly delighted to have Karen Gillan—known worldwide as Amy Pond, the spirited, ginger-haired companion of The Doctor on "Doctor Who"—on his guest couch. Of course, Norton couldn’t pass up commenting on a rumor that Amy Pond would meet her maker on a coming "Who" episode, chiding her, “Everyone knows nobody on 'Doctor Who' dies!” The joke was that everyone on "Doctor Who" dies all the time and yet comes back to die yet again and again. Because dying is what you do on Who.
