Re: Doctor Who

This made me think that maybe River could be a future Regeneration of the Doctor? I thought that too. But we know she died, although I s'pose she could've regenerated afterwards. We don't know that, we know she got shot, woke up later and stole a ship. The last scene of that episode sho...

I like how the chair had a cushion on it, they may be an evil alliance but they're considerate at least. So does it just trap him or does it actually do something to him once he's in it, I wonder...? I mean, he's sitting in what looks like a quarter of it, what about the other 3/4?

I'm at a loss completely for the first time now, no Amy, no Doctor, no River... the only thing I can see making sense is the idea that Rory may come back now that Amy remembered him properly, or something, which may make it a Rory saves the day finale. Other than that, I'm stumped.
