Ah. So she killed him while wearing the space suit. Doesn't explain the regeneration, unless she's part Time Lord. Which doesn't make sense yet, unless Amy's baby belongs to the Doctor. Also explains how River is also a doctor and can fly the same Tardis just like the Master. Perhaps the doctor uses her body to continue living past his regeneration limit in a similar way that the Master had. Still don't get how River is in prison or must be returned to prison at the end of that episode, since few actually witnessed the murder or had the ability to capture her after that. My guess is that River and the Doctor are the same person, and the confusion is to prevent a paradox.

river...is the doctor?? wow, that sounds crazy but at the same time would be a brilliant twist. Can't see it happening, as the doctor famously uses fire extinguishers instead of guns...

But his personality does change slightly after regenerating into a new body. Although at least the normal process keeps him a dude.

Also, it would make him married (probably) to himself. Or herself, as the case may be.

Ah that's right. So yeah my guess isn't too likely. Although the Doctor does lie occasionally to manipulate people. Although telling a lie that you're married to someone would only generate more questions and be counter productive. The Doctor marrying his daughter would be unlikely also.

I wonder what the purpose of the space suit was.

Life support. It probably has other functions too...

Well the kid already knew how to regenerate. The last episode said that the suit could feed her just using sunlight, having weapons and communication systems also. I wonder why she has a need for it is all. She didn't build it herself as she was scared when the suit captured her. They made it seem like the Silence made it though.

The Silents also went out of their way to raise the girl in that children's home, so they apparently had some use in mind for her. Perhaps they wanted her to kill the Doctor.

So who do you think River song is? There's the obvious option of his wife, but I've heard rumours that she is a physical embodiment of the TARDIS which would be interesting and would explain why she knows the TARDIS so well.
Your guess wasn't so off after all :O (about The Doctor's Wife, that is)

Does anyone know where I can watch the first episode of this series online? I thought I had it recorded but it clashed with Top Gear and it's not on iPlayer anymore...

Netflix or however you spell it has at least up through series 5.
For series 6, you could try YouTube but it's probably not legal.

So now that we know that Idris was the TARDIS, , it scuppers my theory about river. I suppose she can't really be a member of the doctor's family, because that would be incesty. And what do people make of the whole "The only water in the forest is the river" thing? Maybe there's something we missed in Forest of the Dead...

Well that was some cliffhanger! (Although I read it on digitalspy...) Who's the eyepatch woman, or "Madame Kovarian" then? River, maybe :o

Rory will be leaving at the end of the series apparently - not sure how they'll write him out...
