    How many times can they pull the "River meets the Doctor but he doesn't see her so he won't recongnise her later"? Its not something that really works once, and at this point BF has had her meet the 8th Doctor and now the 4th. I mean, I don't really care because its all crappy fanfiction to me, but its so obviously a poorly thought out cash grab that its kind of funny.

    Actually, River has met all of the classic BF Doctors. And of course it's a "cash grab". They don't make these things for fun. As for "poorly thought out", I'm sure that the sales figures will prove that wrong. And if you "don't really care", then why complain about it?

    This follows on the heels of the recent news that she'll be meeting The Fifth Doctor, too, which I didn't even know about until this news. They're producing so much great stuff now and I haven't had the time to keep up. I still haven't listened to the second set with The Sixth and Seventh Doctors yet.

    So just Tim Treloar, Frazier Hines and David Bradley to go.

    Yeah, Moffat did his part to support this with The Husbands of River Song, when she showed all the faces of the Doctor. I'd argue she's the only companion of the Doctor's who might've met the Warrior, which kind of makes sense too.

    And I'm delighted. Any NuWho companion/enemy/situation that has the Fourth Doctor figured in is never bad for me. And yeah, come to think of it, a Third Doctor encounter would be delightful!

    That actually sounds fantastic! I have always wondered how the Fourth Doctor would handle River's edge and flirtatious personality. Knowing how he rolled back in the day, the advances of River would be a hoot to see him put down with whit and candor.
