River Song Is Back for the Doctor Who Christmas SpecialSeptember 3rd, 2015
Oh boy. Stephen Moffat is always about doing the same ideas over and over again, so this should not come as a surprise, but River Song is coming back for this year’s Doctor Who Christmas special. Despite Moffat’s overly-complicated, wave of the hand plots, I’m giving him the benefit of the doubt here, only because last season was so amazing. I’m convinced that someone at the BBC reigned him in last year. Here’s to hoping we have another season like that.
Here’s what the Moff had to say:
“Another Christmas, another special for Doctor Who – and what could be more special than the return of Alex Kingston as Professor River Song. The last time the Doctor saw her she was a ghost. The first time he met her, she died. So how can he be seeing her again? As ever, with the most complicated relationship in the universe, it’s a matter of time …”
Let’s hope they keep the lines “Spoilers” and “Sweeties” to a minimum.
