I leave tomorrow for Pittsburgh to make THE FAULT IN OUR STARS.  Things may be quiet on Tumblr for awhile but I’ll check in occasionally with casting updates and set photos.  See you at the movies!

I still can’t believe it’s happening. But I guess it is.

I don’t know what to say. I have to let a GIF speak for me.

"I just want you to know, there are worlds out there, safe in the sky because of her. That there are people living in the light, and singing songs of Donna Noble, a thousand million light years away. They will never forget her, while she can never remember. But for one moment, one shining moment, she was the most important woman in the whole wide universe.

She still is. :(

I just thought this would be “lala another finale where the Doctor dies and then comes back and Clara does a thing etc. etc.”

no one told me it was going to be thE END OF THE RELATIONSHIP I’VE LOVED SINCE MY FIRST DOCTOR WHO EPISODE AND THE INSPIRATION FOR THE TUMBLR ICON I’VE LITERALLY ALWAYS HAD

It’s not the end! The River we see is post-library River, talking from the Library’s computer. Pre-library River is STILL OUT THERE.

Right, but post-Library!River didn’t remember Clara at the conference call. So either River was once again pretending not to know somebody to avoid spoilers, or River really never met Clara before. If the latter, then that would mean that River doesn’t show up again, at least not while Clara is still a companion.

Either way, it was the end of the relationship for River. The Doctor may still meet younger Rivers in his future, but this was goodbye for her, and for him it was goodbye to the only River who knew the full extent of their lives together. 

So in that sense it was the end of my favorite relationship. =(

As far as the first paragraph goes: the Doctor does not travel with Clara for long stretches of time like he did the Ponds. He picks her up, they have an adventure, he takes her home the same day. There’s plenty of time for the Doctor to encounter River in-between and after without her meeting Clara - but if she had met Clara she’d try to avoid spoilers and distress for Clara, just like she did with Donna. To me, River clearly knows who Clara is because she says the Doctor’s name; River knows what is inside the tomb, River knows what is at stake, and River would never sacrifice the Doctor for anyone. She would never have conceded at the end of The Wedding of River Song if she didn’t know the Doctor was going to survive it, and that would have cost every life in the universe.

As far as the second, I just can’t see it that way. By that measure, the relationship has been over since the character was introduced. River and the Doctor got closure in a way that was really quite beautiful. River’s last memory of The Doctor isn’t of a man who doesn’t know her, doesn’t love her, and isn’t her husband. It’s a man who is ultimately willing to undergo the deepest pain he knows to give her what she needs.

So, I just can’t be sad.

—Then why didn’t you speak to me?
—Because I thought it would hurt too much.

We understand that a small number of US fans have received in error their DVD edition of Series 7 Part 2 early. We respectfully ask those fans not to divulge information or post content publicly so that fellow fans who have yet to see the episodes do not have their viewing pleasure ruined.

If everyone keeps the secrets safe until next Saturday we will release a special new clip featuring material of the Tenth AND Eleventh Doctor!

Oh, balls, what a mistake. WILL THIS WORK?

If you post spoilers without tagging it #doctor who or #spoilers …

Staying out of the Doctor Who related tags as well.
