Re: Do we want to know the Doctor's secret?
Part of me wonders if River already knows (or will find out at some point) what this secret is. We still don't know how she learned his name, which she whispered to 10 in the Library.
She's his wife. She probably saw his license when he was pulled over for driving a Tardis under the influence of jelly babies.
Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning.
