Is Clara's gran really Amy Williams, née Pond?

I noticed that they both had the same ring on.

    Please bring more references to make your claim. At the very least, bring pictures of both rings to show they're identical. Personally, I didn't think they were identical at all. Jan 4, 2014 at 15:11
  • I do not think so. Their functions (story-line-wise) were very separate. Can you show any evidence to support you hypothesis? Jan 4, 2014 at 16:55
  • If Amy is Clara's grandmother, then Clara's mother must be River Song, right?

  • @MrLister: Amy had other children, so not necessarily.

  • Amy was wearing her wedding set, that we'd seen a million times and is a large six-prong vintage basket setting with a gold band. Old gram lady there is wearing a pearl ring.

No they didn't have the same ring on. Difference between the Rings

SO, no Clara's Granny is not Amy Pond.

There are also various other reasons, like the fact that Amy and Rory's son's last name was Williams, not Oswald OR Ravenwood.

Amy and Rory were dead by 2012, which was proved in THE ANGELS TAKE MANHATTAN when they arrive and the Doctor says they're in 2012. Clara, being 24 and born in 1989, is from 2013, and her grandma is clearly alive and well.

    Plus Amy died in New York, probably around the turn of the Millennium. Clara’s gran is likely having Christmas lunch in 2013. Jan 4, 2014 at 16:19

    And Clara's grandmother did not show any particular familiarity with the Doctor, which she should have if she were really Amy.

    Clara probably had two grandmothers -- nearly everyone does, after all. So the other one could be Amy.

No. Amy said she could not have any more children after Demon's Run.

AMY: Whatever they did to me at Demons Run, I can't ever give you children.

  • In theory, she could still have adopted a child who wasn't her biological child. (Welcome to Stack Exchange, by the way! I took the liberty of adding a canonical source to your answer, to improve it and forestall downvoters.)
