It’s the question everyone was asking after the emotional Doctor Who finale: what happened to Rory’s dad Brian (Mark Williams) after the departure of the Ponds? Well, the Doctor Who website released this four-and-a-half minute “unshot scene” featuring only storyboard images and some moving voiceover work from Mark Williams and Arthur Darvill as Rory. Watch, and if you’re particularly susceptible to watery eyes from this sort of stuff, have a Kleenex on hand. My keyboard is a bit damp at the moment.

While not British himself—he was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri—he once received inordinate hospitality in London for sharing the name of a dead but beloved EastEnders character. His Anglophilia stems from a high school love of Morrissey, whom he calls his "gateway drug" into British culture.
