Rory Williams is Amy Pond’s husband, a straightforward sort of guy who works as a nurse. He’s known Amy since they were children, when she made him dress up as her legendary ‘raggedy Doctor.’ That’s why Rory entered the medical profession.
Rory’s compassionate, inquisitive and capable of great bravery and endurance. He usually finds himself hoping that whatever alien horrors he encounters can be successfully defeated by thumping them. He loves Amy, but the Doctor sometimes exasperates him. He worries that Amy’s only with him because he reminds her of the Time Lord. A bit. Following them both around might get Rory into a lot of trouble.
