Steven Moffat has promised to reveal the true identity of River Song in the next series of Doctor Who.

The writer told New York Magazine that he is currently writing the episode where River Song's (Alex Kingston) true intentions towards The Doctor (Matt Smith) are made clear.

"Well, 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," he said. "I'm writing the episode right now where The Doctor finds out who she is. We're not just going to endlessly tease."

Moffat also admitted that he is reluctant to kill off any of the long-running sci-fi drama's popular characters.

He explained: "In the old series, they did off a couple of them. I'm not saying we'll never do it, but it's not that kind of a show. It's not gritty. It's kind of a lovely, life-affirming, optimistic show without a cynical bone in its body.

"It's almost odd when you see it in competition with things like Battlestar Galactica, and you think, 'Well that's not us at all.' We're the story of a wonderful man from space who can travel in a telephone box! But I'm not guaranteeing I won't kill someone in the future!"

Nice! And I don't know how soon the episodes are being written...but could the revelation be the mid-season cliffhanger?

That was my thoughts too. They go to Utah next week to do the last two weeks of filming on 1 and 2, so I suppose they could fit in ep 5 before Christmas when they return, and then a two parter in the New Year for the cliff hanger :hmm:

Just seen a post of Timeboy's on GB with a few teasers in:

Few spoilery tidbits from the opening two parter for everyone to ponder:

Towards the start of the episode we have the traditional "Where are we up to now?" conversation between the Doctor and River Song. This time, in a 1960s American Diner.

Expect timey-wimey antics on the scale of "The Big Bang"

Amy finds something out, and River Song asks for her word that she'll keep it quiet.

(I know nothing more than those brief nuggets at the mo, so can't expand, sorry!)


I'm wondering if Amy sneaks a look at River's diary and learns something from the future :hmm:

The Christmas Day airing in America has been confirmed as 9pm, and the proms will also be on, I'm assuming beforehand.

So it's looking like we won't know who River is for some time yet, frustrating :P

The Easter episode was false unfortunately. Whoever put the info into imdb mistook the fact that the director was doing a single episode, rather than a two parter, as being a special rather than just an episode of S6 :lol:
