If Karen & Arthur hadn't left, do you suppose Rory was being set-up as 'The Impossible Boy' - the one who who kept dying all over the place, but then turning up unscathed?

I don't think it was ever intended to be so, it just became a running gag. He died as an important part of the plot arc, but also 'died' in the imaginary world of Amy's Choice - and because the public caught on to that, they ran with it. It was never implied to have any significance.

Even The Silence mocked him

"Rory Williams. The man who dies and dies again..."

No.

I don't think she is.

I think Moffat always intended this story for Clara.

She's had three onscreen deaths so far: Blown up, fell from a cloud, and time zombie.

And who knows how many times the other hers could have died.
