River Song wants to meet the Thirteenth Doctor!

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?

It’s certainly a question that River Song has considered and her answer seems typical of River:

“I think [River would] just take her in her arms and give her a big kiss!”

Speaking at Edmonton Expo in Canada, Kingston said of Whittaker’s Doctor meeting River Song:

“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.”

Despite River’s story having pretty much concluded in The Husbands Of River Song, we know that River is a time traveller and it’s perfectly plausible that she could meet any of the Doctors at some point – as proven with Big Finish’s audio series The Diary of River Song – so who knows, maybe we might see River bump into her husband… or rather, wife?
