Among all the excitement and controversy of the casting of the Thirteenth Doctor, one question has no doubt popped up in the minds of some fans: how would the Doctor’s wife react?
“I think [River would] just take her in her arms and give her a big kiss!”
“I think it would be fantastic. It’d be great fun to explore that possibility, particularly now that the Doctor is going to regenerate into a female form.
If you’re going to do that, why not explore other potentials in terms of his relationships with former, well not former companions because River was never a companion, but people who have been in his life in the past, or her life?
So yeah, let’s wait and see.”
