10 Reasons We Love… RIVER SONG

By T. Mack

Since her introduction in season four of Doctor Who‘s regenerated life, River Song has managed to become an instant classic character in the show’s epic line-up. The brain-child of Steven Moffat, River first showed up with David Tennant’s 10th Doctor, went on an emotional journey through time with Matt Smith’s 11th Doctor, and is scheduled to meet up with Peter Capaldi’s 12th Doctor during this week’s Christmas special. River is vivacious and voluptuous, sexy and romantic, a badass with a vulnerable side. She’s a doctor in her own right, a professor, a historian and an archaeologist. She has been Cleopatra, she created the oldest graffiti in the universe, she breaks out of high security space prison whenever she feels like it and she jumps out of space ships into deadly outer space while wearing a ballgown and a smile.

While I was slacking, Geekritique reported on Wednesday that River Song is set to appear in this year’s Doctor Who Christmas special. The return of the character is one no one was sure we’d ever get. Alex Kingston, who plays the vivacious wife of the Doctor, had been open about her desire to see River return. However, the character’s story line seemed to have played itself all the way out during Matt Smith’s reign as 11th Doctor. While there was a loop hole that was wide enough for River to comfortably step through, there was no indication until recently that show-runner, Steven Moffat, would take advantage of it.
