If you don't know who River is - stop now if you don't want to know yet...
I need some help with piecing it together. Please forgive me because I'm really hopeless at remembering names, places and series.
So here in Australia we've just had the end when we find out that River Song is Amy's daughter - but she's time lord because they were in the Tardis when she conceived.
Is anyone further ahead than that?
OK another question - do you remember a couple of years back, they went to that place with a war going on - and the doctor had a clone made of him that was a female? Well I presume that was a time lord? Anyhow what the hell happened to her? Is she going to come back? Where has she gone? Have the writers forgotten her?
Also back to River Song - she dies a few seasons back - with the last doctor in the shadow place and the doctor puts her into the computer with her mates. So if the doctor dies - like he's going to in the future, in the sea killed by the girl in the spacesuit, and River takes over, then she dies - what then?
You've got the first part. The baby was named Melody Pond, which the forest people translated to River Song. She was conceived in the TARDIS and has some Time Lord characteristics.
Also, with her dying in the Library, you need to remember that her time line goes in reverse, so the Doctors first meeting with her (in the Library) is in her future but the Doctor's (and our) past. The first time she meets him is the last time he sees her and vice versa.
So, my very first reply in AtheistNexus. Let's see how this goes...
The Doctor's daughter is one of many lose ends from the reign of RTD. Like for example the Aristocracy in Planet of the Dead "We're ready for anyting!" - what was all that business.
Well, we know that River is Amy's and Rory's daughter. But she is in prison for killing a good man. Who is that? And furthermore, when the Doctor finally figured out the identity of Rive, he promptly ran of to go somewhere. Where did he go? Why couldn't he transport the people home, he has a freakin' time machine.
Oh well. Muffat is messing with us
"The Doctors Daughter" episode, loved that. I intend to write a fan fic series for her but i don't quite have the style down.
Moffat is majorly plot driven. If he can do anything it's make the out come impossible to figure out before it happens.
Something else, who was sort of disappointed with the whole River dieing thing? It makes sense that she would die before he does because they're going in opposite directions on their personal timelines, but we know now...and it kind of sucks. I think she could have died a way better way, but is it not possible she could be retrieved from the computer on The Library planet and reconstituted? That's kind of what happened to the other people, they were stored in memory. Agh..It's really up to how Moffat plays it. I do like that his stories are more science related than Davies'.
Yes, she's half time-lord, or human with timelord-traits. It could be either one really because she apparently only had a limited number of regenerations.
