We are also nearing the end of River's life and I have to watch it again, to make sure if the Doctor realized it when she mentioned her pardon and that she is a Professor now. Think she will get a farewell episode as well? And I realize there is some clip where this is dealt with, but at this point it would be nice to get a "the last time they have an adventure together" episode. Just not so soon after the Pond's departure of course. That said, I have yet to see their final date which is available on the DVD somewhere? Is that right?
