River Song

Doctor Who‘s Alex Kingston and Steven Moffat Talk Closure for River Song

Many of us have already marveled at the warmth and sincerity of the final (??) appearance of River Song on Doctor Who in this year's Christmas special, "The Husbands of River Song." Now, Alex Kingston, along with Steven Moffat, are sharing their thoughts on closure for their favorite time-traveling archaeologist.

Doctor Who Christmas Special 2015: River’s End

"I'm an archaeologist from the future. I dug you up."

For Whovians, December 25th is about more than just Christmas; it's about the Doctor Who Christmas special. This year, rather than the special being a one-off story involving characters the Doctor has happened upon outside the events of the show, "The Husbands of River Song" allows the Doctor to spend the holiday with one of the most special people in his life.

Spoilers! Alex Kingston Thinks River Song Could Return to Doctor Who

"I haven’t been told I’m done [on the show]."

Love her or not, River Song is an important character in the life of our favorite time-and-space-traveling Madman in a Box. So it would make sense for her to return for an interaction with another one of The Doctor's faces on Doctor Who. Well, Alex Kingston seems to think that there's a strong possibility that River will interact with Capaldi's Doctor!

John Barrowman Pitches the Captain Jack/River Song Spinoff He’d Like to See

Hello Sweetie

In an interview with The TV Addict at SDCC, John Barrowman had some things to say about his ideal Captian Jack Harkness/River Song Doctor Who spinoff. To the surprise of no one and the delight of all, it appears that he's put considerable thought into the probably-won't-ever-exist-sorry-but-it's-true show. See if you agree with what he wants behind the cut.

You Can Now Own a Version of River Song’s Blaster Created by Doctor Who‘s Actual Propmaster

where does he get those wonderful toys

A fair number of us geeks are more than willing (if not necessarily able) to spend large amounts of money on accurate, high-quality replica props. You know it. I know it. The BBC knows it. That last has just licensed Doctor Who propmaker Nick Robatto to sell his own line of Doctor Who replica props and memorabilia. No sonic screwdriver, sadly—the FAQ for Robatto's RubberToe Replicas says they have no plans to make them in the near future (what with another company owning the license and all). But the replicas RubberToe is selling, among them River Song's Squareness Blaster and the Dalek Death Ray Projector (a.k.a. the whisk), look quite neat themselves.

Rory is Marty McFly in This Doctor Who/Back to the Future Animated Mash-Up

Wibbly Wobbly Timey Wimey Stuff

Animator/writer James Farr isn't the first to mash-up the sci-fi, time traveling epics that are Doctor Who and Back to the Future but he certainly puts an interesting spin on it. In this clip, The Doctor is Doc, Rory is Marty, and Amy is Jennifer. Farr writes, "Somewhere in the jaw-dropping vastness of the multi-verse, I like to think that this cartoon plays at 7am every Saturday morning." Now I'm thinking that too. (via Companions of the Doctor) Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?

The Prop Replica of River Song’s Final Sonic Screwdriver You Can Never Have

Hello Sweetie

Would you like a replica of River Song's sonic screwdriver from Silence in the Library, built by Doctor Who's prop master, complete with blinking neural relay containing the essence of River Song? Well, too bad. This one costs $3500 and there are only going to be fifteen of them. Right now you can sign up on a waiting list for the preorders on Quantum Mechanix. So, come on and look at more pictures of it to rub salt in that wound you didn't know you had until right now.

The Mary Sue Interviews Karen Gillan of Doctor Who

Interview

As we promised a few days ago in our Doctor Who Season 7 premiere photo gallery, we've got three very special interviews from our time spent with stars Matt Smith and Karen Gillan, as well as new Executive Producer Caroline Skinner at the event. Since Gillan is a fellow redhead, I've decided to let her go first! See what she had to tell us about her own time travel preferences, how she feels about leaving the long-running sci-fi series, and who she thinks could make a great female Doctor.

New Doctor Who Promo Previews Ponds and Puns

The World Doesn't End Because the Doctor Dances

It was officially (finally) announced today that Doctor Who returns to our lives in less than two weeks. As if that wasn't enough to freak out about, we also have this new trailer for season seven. As one can expect with Who, the trailer is an interesting blend of hilarity, action, and impending doom. Oh, and puns. It's also the first time this season I've heard anyone within the story mention something about the Ponds leaving voluntarily, which bodes well with my prayers that they won't be killed off in some horrible fashion.

Here Is a Shot of River Song From the New Season of Doctor Who

The World Doesn't End Because the Doctor Dances

Shooting continues on Doctor Who season seven, and after a wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey romp through New York City, the cast and crew are back in Cardiff, and joined by River Song herself, Alex Kingston. We hear there is something to do with River posing as a mobster, so proceed with caution because there might be spoilers ahead, sweetie!

A Sweet Song About Doctor Who’s River Song

This Exists... Because of A Lady

There are plenty of fan made songs that overtly reference a specific fandom but what I love about Ally Rhodes' ode to River Song is its subtlety. She calls it, "a song about the triumph of love over predetermined destiny." And gets extra points from me for having tags on the video that read: "may possibly have little something to do with doctor who BUT WE SHALL NOT EXPLAIN." If you listen and still don't think it's about Doctor Who's River Song, hit the jump to read the lyrics.

Countdown To Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock

The World Doesn't End Because the Doctor Dances

A full trailer was recently released for the official Doctor Who video game, Eternity Clock. It's got the Doctor acting like his usual self and River Song (looking very Catwoman-like) up to her usual tricks as well. You may hear a familiar nursery rhyme at the very end, too. That's from the Season 6 episode Night Terrors. Eternity Clock, being released later this year, is the first of three Doctor Who console game titles planned. The game will be available for Playstation 3, Playstation Vita and PC platforms and you can check out the PlayStation blog for more info. In our last post fans seemed sort of split down the middle about whether this was a good concept. What do you think now that you've seen some gameplay action? Previously in Doctor Who

Alex Kingston and Craig Ferguson Talk The Doctor Who Movie and Neil Gaiman

It Goes Ding When There's Stuff

Everybody knows that Craig Ferguson is the biggest nerd on Late Night television (sorry, Jimmy, but you know it's true), so it should come as no surprise that when he had Alex Kingston on last night to talk about the recently released Like Crazy, the do absolutely no such thing and just start talking about steampunk, Neil Gaiman, and how Matt Smith smells. Enjoy. Previously in Craig Ferguson

Things We Saw Today: Tiny Batman Clones

Things We Saw Today

Batman, Batman, Batman. We always knew this was what you really had in mind when you created Batman Inc. (and why some of us still have a thorn in our paw over certain members of the Bat-family and their *ahem* exclusion through the years). Shortpacked's David Willis knocks it out of the park again with today's strip.
