July 24th, 2012 by Marc Comments

Steven Moffat has confirmed that River Song will be in the new series of Doctor Who (starting next month)and that the big part of her story has been told. Em, yay?

River, played by Alex Kingston (above) was revealed last season to be the daughter of Amy (Karen Gillan) and Rory (Arthur Darville), the Doctor’s assistants.
This year she’ll appear in episode 5 of the series.
Digital Spy caught up with exec producer Caroline Skinner who said: “She’s so the queen of mischief in this episode.”

Moffat commented on the departure of Amy and Rory, which will also occur in the New York-set episode five, and the later introduction of Jenna-Louise Coleman’s new companion: “When you start that story [of the companion] again, you’ve got a fresh take on it,” he said.
“You’ve got someone who’s bemused by him, who doesn’t know he has two hearts, and you meet him again through their eyes.”
Moffat also said recently that, regarding future series of Doctor Who, he wouldn’t rule out more episodes featuring River Song.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
