When we last saw River Song, she was dead. Somehow linked to Clara and following the Doctor around Tranzalore, the Child of the TARDIS provided some guidance to her husband in The Name of the Doctor. And then she was gone.
Now, however, it seems that the perennially non-linear Mrs Who is coming back – possibly for one last, final meeting with the Doctor.
As you’ll see above, actress Alex Kingston has told BBC America
I look forward to sharing more of [River] with you in the future, but… spoilers!
Might we see her again at Christmas? Could River be appearing in the 50th anniversary?
Or could she, hope-upon-hope, be finally put to rest in a way that is honest and loyal to the character. Remember Forest of the Dead?
The last time I saw you, the real you — the future you, I mean — you turned up on my doorstep, with a new haircut and a suit. You took me to Darillium to see the singing towers. Oh, what a night that was! The towers sang and you cried. You wouldn’t tell me why, but I suppose you knew it was time. My time. Time to come to the Library. You even gave me your screwdriver; that should’ve been a clue.
Could Steven Moffat finally let that scene play out? Might River have an encounter with the Twelfth Doctor, one fleeting, final moment before heading off to The Library?
We shall see…
