Professor River Song is one of the most storied and complex characters to have appeared in sixty years of Doctor Who, which is saying something. Archaeologist, Detective, Writer, Lecturer, Scientific Advisor and occasional Assassin, the good Professor is certainly accomplished, but it is her long, and ofttimes non-linear relationship with the Doctor that is most striking. Is it any surprise in the wibbly-wobbly time-wimey world of Doctor Who that their first on-screen meeting was simultaneously the first and last of their many great adventures together? Her appearances are always memorable, having associated with the Doctor through the Tenth to Thirteenth incarnations, but it is with Eleven and Twelve that she is most closely associated, as the Doctor’s wife no less!

Born to Amy Pond and Rory Williams (in a previous incarnation – we said it was complicated!), River Song is not strictly human, having inherited some traits of the Time Lords owing to being conceived aboard the TARDIS as it travelled the Time Vortex. Her birth instigated a complex plot to rid the universe of the Doctor…

It is during the two-part (11th Doctor) story The Impossible Astronaut and Day of the Moon that some of these revelations begin to be laid bare. A mysterious summons beckons the Doctor and his companions to both 21st Century Utah and 1969 Florida. Here’s a clip to whet your appetite.

The story is also notable for introducing one of the more iconic Doctor Who aliens of recent years, The Silence. That’s all we’re going to say on the matter here as she might say, “Spoilers!”
