Strange thought, but what if.. [[HONKING great spoilers]]

What if River is a long time personification of the TARDIS? The 'person whose' identity (soul?) was put into Idris? (Confuses me, Idris is a male name meaning 'impulsive lord', and one for a dragon, at that )

Not sure if it would work, and there are probably a hundred reasons why she can't be, but in terms of meeting the Doctor when she was still 'young', meeting him out of time-sequence, knowing how to pilot the ship better than he does, the deep abiding love she has for him... I could see it.

Anyway, I had the thought: discuss!
"So, Mulder, this supposed clandestine source who's contacted you how do we know that he's not just another crackpot whose encyclopedic knowledge of extraterrestrial life isn't derived exclusively from reruns of Star Trek?"

Re: Strange thought, but what if.. [[HONKING great spoilers]]

Interesting thought, but I think it's unlikely. The TARDIS says herself she was a museum piece even when he stole her, so she was hardly young. It would also mean the Doctor was left without a TARDIS at some point in the future but if he were then what were the adventures he and River were having? Unless the TARDIS manages to will a personification in to being.
Also, if she's a TARDIS and is now inside the Library computer does that make the Library a TARDIS now?
One more anal-probing gyro-pyro levitating ecoplasm alien anti-matter story and I'm going to take out my gun and shoot somebody.
