As if anyone could take an instant dislike to her. They obviously have history Tongue

I saw another picture of her from that filming the other night in her gold dress and she looked gorgeous. I cant wait to see her on screen again.

The more I think about series 6 starting, the more excited I am about the return of River. Im so glad she is in the opener and I hope we get to see a lot more of her this year. River is brilliant and the mystery around her is itching to be revealed. I need my River fix Tongue

^ I'm with you on that!! 

I squirreled away links to a couple of cool essays about River that I'd completely forgotten about until I was trying to clear out my zillion bookmarks.  Thought you might be interested if you haven't seen them already!  Cheesy

I am very interested to learn her back story and who she really is in relation to the Doctor.  Good stuff!

I dont hate people who hate her. People can like whoever they want to, but I dont personally get a lot of the vitriol that gets aimed at her

Unless time has indeed been rewritten we've seen how River 'dies' and know the reason why. We know she killed a good man but that doesn't make her 'evil' - in war good men are killed all the time by good men. It's the 'why' that justifies - not the act itself.

Whatever colourful twists Mr Moffat has in store for River/us I like to think that TFOD was her final swansong and that her actions here... if nothing else ... made up for any past 'indiscretions'.

I agree. I think it would be such a shame if the lovely ending to TFOTD got changed because I think it would ultimately change her character because no matter what Moff dreams up for stories along the way, I like to believe that whoever she was when she died was real and whatever happened beforehand led her to that place and the person she was when she died.

Yea, they HAVE to keep the SITL ending. I know things can be changed and rewritten, but that should be kept. Besides, if River doesnt die then it would mean the Doctor does and explaining that away would be a lot of effort and take a fair chunk of time within in an episode. It doesnt need to be changed.

That shot of her in the trailer where she shoots the Doctors stetson off just made me love her that bit more. I dont know what she has against his hats but I hope she shoots them all Tongue

I actually like him in the Stetson.  I would have left that one on.

Thats just fu*king stupid. I heard similar comments about Matt Smith when he was announced as the Doctor but he is awesome as the Doctor and how he looks makes no difference. Alex Kingston is beautiful but it has no bearing on how brilliantly she plays River Song. I'm sure some people just come out with this **** to get a reaction.

A lot of negativity comes I think from peoples misunderstanding of the character. I have heard a lot of people say 'I don't like that she knows more than the Doctor' but she doesnt. She just knows things in a different order to him at the moment. When we start seeing things from the perspective of her first meetings then he will know more than her in terms of their history/future. There is no point in people using that as an excuse because it has nothing to do with her character. They could hardly have a story where she knows the Doctor but doesnt know her own history. It wouldnt make sense in the narrative.

As for her being ugly, if thats the case then I must be a moose. And thats impossible because I am gor-jusssss! Tongue

I think some people do say these negative things just to troll and get a reaction.  But unfortunately there are some who do seem to think that their opinion is the right one, and get their knickers in a twist* when then don't understand how others can be 'missing' something that is plain as day to them Roll Eyes

Truth is that fans like us, who visit DW sites/use twitter or chatrooms, make up like half of a half of a percent of the overall 'fan base'.  The only thing that really matters to the program makers is the general public's view; i.e the viewing figures, merch buyers, event goers, etc.  And from that POV the show and characters are phenomenally successful, worldwide.

Why us on-line fans can't just get on and discuss things in an adult manner is really beyond me, we should be caring for each other and grown up enough to agree to disagree on subjects like this.  Ho hum Sad

Sandi has it spot on. There is way too much bitching and backbiting in fandoms. DW is the only one I really frequent and it can sometimes get horrible. The way some people speak to others who don't share their opinion is shocking at times and for some reason this character in particular seems to be at the heart of many arguments which I could understand if the character was done and dusted, but people are basing a lot of their arguments on their own assumptions instead of waiting for her story to complete itself.
