In Issue 465 of Doctor Who Magazine, Steven Moffat may have dropped a few hints about this year’s Doctor Who Christmas special.
Asked about how the TARDIS exploded back in Series 5, he said:
“Oh, never mind the TARDIS blowing up, what about the endless, bitter war Kovarian was on about? And what’s Trenzalore? And the oldest question in the universe? And what exactly do they mean, silence will fall? Anyway, I’m off to a read-through…”
The read-through was for this year’s Christmas special, and took place on Wednesday, 4th September 2013.
#no but if it’s about Kovarian and the Silence and Trenzalore#then River must be in there somewhere right?#all of that shit revolves around her and the Doctor#I’m not saying I’m getting excited but #i’mgettingexcited (mygalfriday)
What if we see how the “endless, bitter war” starts from Kovarian’s POV? What if we see how she becomes involved with The Silence and how they create their plan and discover “hope”? What if we see when exactly they abduct Amy (cameo!)? What if we see them “raising” and training Melody/Mels? What if!
I’d love if we saw River and found out some answers like Mels’ training, but…remember when we all thought Pond Life would have to involve River and how we all said that they have to at least mention her in 7a? How we couldn’t believe the topics involved her with Asylum, Dinosaurs, and Power of Three but they never included even a mention of her? How Amy can’t even say her daughter’s name in Mercy? How she took down the pictures she had of Mels? Even PS didn’t involve River and Rory is telling Brian about their timey-wimey child Anthony, completely cutting out their timey wimey child Melody.
So they can do it again.
The war, Trenzalore, the Tardis blowing up, all of this is between Kovarian, the Silence and the Doctor. They don’t have to involve River.
They (the Silence) find out about the Trenzalore prophesy before they even form the Silence and the Academy of the Question.
The war begins long before they even thought of using Melody. Kovarian tells the Doctor how the war has become “endless, bitter”.
The Tardis blowing up was Plan A, again before Melody, before Amy & Rory were married and conceived her.
Silence will fall and the oldest question: again, just the Doctor and them. The Trenzalore prophesy starts them forming the Silence & the start of the war. The prophesy is about the Doctor; it does not mention River.
So while it can involve River and I hope it does, they can very easily deal with all of it without her being there & just talk about her. (How she was on board the exploding Tardis, how she was Plan B, how her fake grave guards entrance to the Tardis and the Doctor…) Sadly, they don’t even have to do this as they showed us repeatedly in 7a before Manhattan and PS. They did this before, they can do it again.
I hope they don’t; I hope they do it right this time.
