    Oh WOW! Now I think I know what the last series was lacking! This wonderful sense of tension and uncertainty, that series simply didn’t have. And is it just me or is the ‘feeling’ of the RTD era starting to seep in? Please reply!

      Death to River ” Spoilers / Hello Sweetie ! ” Song more like . . . . . but we know she’s dies anyway when she meets the 10th Doctor.

    • UDWF1

      April 15th, 2011 - 3:34pm

      Well we already know how River dies don’t we?

      River could still die. Time can be rewritten

    • WOWHO

      April 15th, 2011 - 8:15pm

      Rory’s in episode 3 though so he can’t die – as is the doctor and Amy

    • Doctor Who Star 100

      April 16th, 2011 - 5:01pm

      river and the doctor make cute couple!

      so do amy and rory!

      leave river and rory alone! they are cool!

    • Fez

      April 17th, 2011 - 9:17am

      Maybe the episodes after the first one are set before the first episode so you see their death then you see their adventures also river could go to the library to look for the last envelope or the sender of the envelopes where she dies to save the doctor

    • doctor stu

      April 17th, 2011 - 4:25pm

      im sure river dies or a character dies and comes back to life.
      this may just be a ‘trick’ statement like rory, he died and then came back to life, as did amy. this could be the same.

    Also, about the other clip, River’s killed a Fez, and now she’s going to murder a Stetson [ what has she got again Hat’s ???? ]. I reckon the best revenge for any Hat’s River has ” murdered ” is to have her arrested by the Judoon, then taken sometime into the future so her skin is turned into a Hat [ like Casandra was as a Trampoline ]and then, once she is a Hat, have her shot numourous times as revenge for every Hat she’s killed [ especially the Stetson, Stetsons ARE COOL, Fez’s ? . . . . yuck ] 😀

    April 14th, 2011 - 7:39am

    Watch again the serious doctor when he spoke serious to river and amy,oh wow what are we in for in this series,river looks rather shock and amy was stun,and sorry but rory was blank,and when amy said fish fingers and custard,the doctor look taken back,what do you think?

  • Jason doctorwhoone

    April 14th, 2011 - 7:37am

    The clip in the Tardis, when the Doctor asks Amy has somebody asked her to say what she’s saying, it seemed like he wasint asking ” has someone been bullying you ? “, well, thats the impression i got, as if his asking if she’s been bullied by someone or something to saying what she’s saying to him, but not making use of the word ” bullying “, very well written stuff.

    Wowzers! Looks like Amy, Rory and River know something the Doctor doesn’t. Could be River Song’s identity. Can’t wait for the 23rd April.
