It’s probably that we just miss River.
"I’m not just anyone"
Nobody can deny the brilliant complexity of the story of River Song; the pure drama, mystery and romance kept us on the eye of our seats for a few seasons and stole our hearts along the way.
Thanks for asking! I don’t know exactly what happened but I didn’t seem to agree with any reference.
We know that Doctor hasn’t told River his real name at that time, but Clara found it out from the book. So Clara is NOT Doctor’s girlfriend. She’s his wife. Haven’t anybody thought about the Deep breath’s scene like this?
No, because think about it: it makes no sense.
- Clara found out from a book, not the Doctor
- He removed it from her mind so that she didn’t know it.
- She herself says more than once that she doesn’t know it.
- He never married her. He never calls her his wife and he is very explicit in his relationships. He has always called River his wife once she is. He would have called Clara his wife if it was true.Moffat, Jenna Louise, Matt Smith, and Capaldi have said whouffle is not true.
So it just doesn’t fit the facts. Deep Breath was just stating that onscreen so it’s clear and canon.
I’ve actually lost track of how many people River Song actually is in this show according to the fandom. She’s Tasha Lem, she’s The Woman In The Shop, she’s Missy, she’s even Clara Oswald, and I’m sure there’s a few more I’m missing. Moffat already stated last year and reiterated at some point during the DWWT that River’s story is done and she’s not coming back yet they still cling tooth and nail to the idea that she apparently needs to stay a part of The Doctor’s life forever and ever.
I feel like half of this fandom has abandonment issues or maybe they think if they let go of a character they’ll lose a limb or a vital organ. There’s no other rational explanation as to why I’m still hearing people mope about Rose ten years later. Loved her, she was great, but I know when I need to put things to rest and a decade seems about the right amount of time.
Someone asked Moffat during one of the DWWT Q&As why we keep seeing the same monsters (ie: Daleks/Cybermen/Weeping Angels) and hardly any new ones. I don’t remember the exact quote, so I’m definitely paraphrasing here, but it was something along the lines of whenever they try new villains they don’t go down well because people like the familiar. That’s got to be one of the most telling things of the inner workings of the fandom in existence. "Lets hold on for dear life to what happened years ago and reject anything new because yuuuck!” seems to be the DW unofficial motto.
I love this ridiculous complaint: why do we always see Daleks and Cybermen?
That’s like Batman fans complaining that the Joker, the Riddler, Catwoman and all the others always show up again in Batman.
River Song, Madam Kovarian, Missy, Mary, Irene…
River Song is not a villain but the opposite. He also has more men than women being villains so…
