One of my favorite ongoing Doctor Who threads is the River Song story. It’s always a pleasure whenever she turns up – she’s fun and mysterious in equal measure, and her relationship with the good Doctor – and what that may entail – is thoroughly compelling.
But will the upcoming Doctor Who series give us more information on River Song?
Word of warning – don’t continue if you don’t want to know anything about the upcoming series.
In a recent interview with Vulture, Steven Moffat promised that series six will indeed provide fans and the Doctor with more information on the time-travelling, sweetie-calling, spoiler-warning, River Song:
“You will find out who she is and what’s going on and how it all makes sense. And that will explain a number of things. I’m writing the episode right now where the Doctor finds out who she is.”
I can’t wait for this storyline to pick-up again. As I mentioned above, I find her to be thoroughly entertaining character who also packs an emotional punch, bringing out a different side to the Doctor. Alex Kingston does a fine job and its good to know that she’ll be back in the fold.

Meanwhile, here’s a classic Doctor/Song scene from day’s gone by:
Doctor Who series six airs Spring 2011. There will also be a Christmas special episode this December.
