Doctor Who fans will rejoice that Steven Moffet has confirmed the return of Dr River Song in Season 9. “It’s Christmas Day in the future and the TARDIS is parked on a snowy village street, covered in icicles, awaiting its next adventure,” a brief synopsis that came with the announcement reads. “Time traveller River Song meets her husband’s new incarnation, in the form of Peter Capaldi, for the first time this Christmas.”
Since Capaldi was announced as the 12th Doctor, I’ve suspected he would turn out to be River’s Doctor, especially as she told both the 10th and 11th Doctors that her Doctor was much older. Now we’ll get a chance to see if I was right.
