It would be interesting. Presumably she'll have already met her in the future. That could be annoying for Oswin. And I totally see River getting jelaous.

And yes, I'm calling her Oswin because that's all I have to go on.

River doesn't seem the jealous type but I do think she will see Oswin as an apprentice, a clever apprentice.

Really? Perhaps that's just because she hasn't really had anyone to be jealous of yet.

I totally see her going all "overly attached girlfriend" on him once Oswin's skirt enters the picture.

If anything she may be annoyed that she is her parents replacement

Are they going to meet?

I just assumed that TATM was also going to be River's final episode.

River's had her best time with the Doctor and I can see her bowing out gracefully and with a kiss blown on the wind and written all over time and space.(I'd like to think that anyways )

I don't think we will see the last of her yet

As for her last bit I can see it coming full circle and her and The Doctor at an opera and her telling him she is about to go to The Library

Ah but there's only one reason he could tell her his name, only one time he could. And I'm assuming it's not next week.

And surely he still needs to tell her his name.

Lol to be fair, could that one time simply be during sex?

It would be so nice to see what was described as the Singing Towers.

Nah, River Song is clearly Moffat's key idea regarding Doctor Who, presumably the one he's had since childhood. I'd imagine she'll be there till his last episode, at least.

I never said it would be this Doctor we don't know how many Doctor's she has been though yet for all we know she could be married to the 25th Doctor

It's the Matt Smith doctor that takes her to the singing towers-

I hate that thing. Selfish, selfish Moffat, wanting to keep River all to himself.

I keep hoping that if that is the case, either River will be rescued from the Library or that Eleven dies along the way so that he can't take her to the library.

Time can be rewritten. And DVD extras can certainly be rewritten.

True enough

Though you could argue that due to Time Travel he took her more than once

To be honest I wouldn't want River to be written by anyone but Moffat, she's his creation, his gift to Doctor Who in a way. Her final appearance just be his last episode imo.

I kind of like the idea of Eleven regenerating just after taking River to the Singing Towers bringing an end to both stories, not sure if that would work out timeline wise though.

That would be kinda perfect. According to the stupid DVD thing, he already knows he takes her, so if he's about to die obviously he'd have to get it done before he regenerates. There's no rush before then, since, well she's already dead anyway.

Or you could say the guilt or just knowing what is about to happen he chooses to regenerate maybe hoping the next Doctor can cope with it better than him.

I would love the Singing Towers scene to not take up too much of an episode just 5 minutes, just sitting looking at the Towers (do we know what they are exactly?) and maybe and then "did I ever tell you my name?"* and fades away and then show the doctor returning to the tardis to regenerate, not sad and weepy like ten (well maybe a little bit but about River not regenerating), but accepting and almost excited at having a new face.

*That's of course if River isn't part of the 50th which seems to be about "Doctor Who?", or of course if 11 regenerates at the end of the anniversary, in that case maybe River asking "So what actually is your name?"

Anyway this thread isn't meant to be about my awful story ideas back to the point, I think River will like Oswin as I doubt there will be anything romantic between her and the doctor, I can see them teaming up to outwit him which could be fun.

I really hope we begin to see less and less of River, I doubt it though.
Never warmed to her when she was introduced in her first episode, and still don't like her.

At some point it will happen just due to the fact Alex will sooner or later age and therefore look older than herself at the character's 'death' in the library.

Plus the Doctor will need to move on from the Ponds, can't see how he will manage that be having adventures with River.

I think River's story is so closely linked to Amy and Rorys, it would not surprise me if next week ended up being her last episode, too.

I'm still hoping that the Weeping Angels send them back in time to the orphanage, where they rescue baby Melody and get to raise her and be a proper family. If that means no River Song than so be it, we've already seen her, anyway

I think given the chance Amy and Rory would do that, they would choose their baby over their friend the Doctor.

That's my vision of the Ponds resolution, anyway
