The next season of Doctor Who

Awright, goddammit. I have one very good goddamn question about the next season of Doctor Who.

Okay. Professor River Song has had intimate knowledge of the Doctor. Just how intimate, we really don't know. But he trusted her enough to give her his true name and his sonic screwdriver. Okay, so where/when/how in the next four episodes of the fifth season is Ten going to have this wonderful relationship with the esteemed Prof. Song? Huh? Enquiring minds want to bloody-damn well know!

How much Doctor-time is going to elapse between these Specials? Is that how they're going to do it? because each season has pretty much followed on the last season. Is that when he's going to squeeze in this relationship? Are they going to mention it at all? Or is it that Prof. Song recognizes the Doctor from a different regeneration?

That's exactly what I've been wondering. The only thing that I can think of is that the relationship starts in one of the specials, unchronicled Doctor time elapses between that special and Season 5, and the relationship properly develops in Season 5, so Prof. Song becomes acquainted with multiple incarnations of the Doctor.

That's the only way that I can see it working. However, I have faith in the Moffat, and I don't think he's going to just let this one go. (I also think that we'll see the daughter make a reappearance at some point in the future and thereby justify the existence of that awful episode.)

I also hope for, but do not anticipate, an adventure that takes place entirely within the TARDIS. I mean, he's got a ton of dangerous stuff that he puts in the "attic" for safe keeping, and he's constantly picking up newbies. Issues must occur, right?

HmmmMMMmmmMMMmm. good points, these. I agree with you that Jenny really ought to meet back up with the Doctor during this season. I think it might be a good bit of continuity to have her be present during the regeneration so she knows what it is and why it is. I understand that she can't stay with him, but I hope they do it in a different way from killing her again.

It didn't sound like they lived together... "You came and picked me up that night..." made it sound like they were dating. Not living together.

Point, but of course my mind went to The Special Hell during that conversation.
