Hello Sweetie by Phoenix-Cry Hello Sweetie by Phoenix-Cry
Detail: phoenix-cry.deviantart.com/art…

River Song...the greatest character in Doctor Who.  No, scratch that.  The greatest character ever.  I love her and of course Alex Kingston who steals any scene she's in. 

I honestly have nothing more to say about this other than the fact that I really enjoyed doing this and I'm silly proud of how it turned out.

I'm not a fan of River myself (I really dislike her), but I think this is some gorgeous artwork! :heart:

(Besides, everyone is entitled to his/her own favorite character.)

I really like River too. :)

I can't understand some of the hate she gets though, she's one of the more interesting characters on "Doctor Who" IMO.

Ah well, can't please everyone I suppose and awesome art BTW. :)

I think the people who don't like River loved Rose and I was never a huge fan of Rose.

EvalRedEye Featured By Owner May 24, 2014
Oh tell me about it! I know this is an unpopular opinion but I thought Rose was terrible!

Well to be fair she was OK in Series 1 but Series 2 OH...MY...GOD she was such an arrogant, self-absorbed, self-entitled, cocky little madame (and that's me describing her kindly)! In fact she's the reason why Series 2 is my least favourite Doctor Who Series and why I rarely re-watch that Series 2. What's worse is the fact that the show was forcing us to love her to bits and constantly telling us how "wonderful and perfect" she is but she really wasn't, she was a nasty person, did they really expect me to root for that?! If only she was the same Rose from Series 1, shame really because that Rose actually IS likeable. :(

I know this sounds mean but I was kinda glad when they made The Doctor & River Song a Canon Couple, helps knock down "Twu Wub" Saint Rose a peg or two.

P.S. For the record I do like Billie Piper, she's a cool person! I just don't like her character Rose that's all. :)

Yeah I was not a fan of Rose in the second season at all.  Love Donna though!  giggle. 

Twu Wub?  I don't think I've heard that one...

Haha who doesn't love Donna? :D To be honest I also really love Jack, Martha & Clara too, I love most of the companions really. :)

For the record "Twu Wub" is just a tongue in cheek way of saying "True Love". :D

Those sites except fan works. Look at how many River Song & other Doctor Who merchandise they have. It's no different than deviantart selling mousepads etc. with it on there. I have four different River shirts from those sites. :)

But you shouldn't do it if it makes you uncomfortable.

Thanks!  Mine is a full steampunk TARDIS type deal.  Blue leather bracers with the St. John's logo, a hip pouch made with the Call Box sign, and a leather Police Box collar with swing clasps that match the ones that are down the front of the corset.

Unfortunately, she's not. Matt Smith seriously told Moffat not to hire her again and Moffat has gone with that, despite his earlier promises to Alex about playing River. He announced that River's story is done, despite how wonderful Peter and Alex would be together as the Doctor and River, and the pieces of her story that we haven't seen -- like learning the Doctor's name -- will remain unseen.  (Matt fans are thrilled though that Moffat is giving Matt what he wants instead of giving Alex what she wants -- and despite that viewers have dropped off by the millions without her. So at least some River fans are very happy.)

Thankfully, Alex still has supportive friends; if you haven't checked out Noel Clarke's twitter, you should. He and Alex adore each other and he's been great to her & her fans there. That show comes out in December. Then, of course, Kenneth Brannaugh has gotten her two more jobs for this year and gets her appearances at his premieres; he's been great about acknowledging how much she's done for him and saying he'll always promote her career in roles she wants. So Alex will be in NY in June and then doing the Cleopatra role she's been wanting to do her whole life. Maybe it'll even blossom as much as Lady Macbeth has for her! And she & John Barrowman continue to look for something to do togther & NCIS wants her back.

Heehee, Matt Smith had the most amusing response when he was asked at a comic con if he thought River would make more appearances.  Apparently he had asked Moffat not to give Capaldi River because he (Smith) was much too possessive of her (both the character and the actress).

I wouldn't call turning on a friend amusing. Alex Kingston is dying to work with Capaldi & has talked since Series 5 about how 12 is River' Doctor with a much more loving and passionate relationship than River x 11. She's been very vocal about that in numerous interviews; Damn shame Moffat and Matt Smith couldn't support a friend that has given them so much; Alex got them the highest ratings in DW since the 4th Doctor which brought lots of money & success to Matt and Moffat. She's always supported them in what they wanted; shame they couldn't be equally as giving to her instead of announcing her story is over and Smith seriously telling Moffat never to hire Alex again: "Anyone but Alex". Well, he got what he want, all that he wants, with her help. Alex on the other hand got screwed out of what she was first promised and really wants. :(

Thankfully Kenneth Branaugh is more supportive -- she wanted to do certain work and he got it for her, never forgetting how much she's done for him. Then ther's her "Chasing Shadows" costars. Look at all that Noel Clarke did for Alex and her fans for her birthday. Arthur Darvill continues to support her (and she's there to support him in his new show) as well as Anthony Edwards. Those are good friends.

Sorry I thought she had moved on to theater. Isn't she in New York doing MacBeth?

No reason to be sorry; lots of River fans are thrilled she's gone since Matt Smith ordered she not be hired again.

Alex is still doing TV. Right now, she's doing a TV show with Noel Clarke and Reece Shearsmith called "Chasing Shadows". The three of them are having a ball & Noel and Reese love to joke with her fans by giving them photos of Alex. You can see them on twitter.

Of course, "Arrow" adores her and had her on the TV show several times so far. I know NCIS has said they want her back so hopefully that'll happen soon. She also filmed a movie role in January earlier in the year.

Kenneth Brannaugh got her the Cleopatra role she's always wanted to do, so she's thrilled about that. 

Yep, she's also doing theater, but not exclusively. Macbeth isn't until June.

She told Moffat and the BBC that she would always make room for them in her schedule, just like she did before. Arrow, Chasing Shadows and the rest confirmed they would always work their schedules so she can play River again.  Not to mention, "Chasing Shadows" and "Cleopatra" are nearby DW, so she can pop right over there for filming.

But they're not bringing her back. All the Moffat episodes have been filmed for the first half of the series & Alex wasn't asked to return for any of them.

Ordered?  I didn't realize it was an 'order', I honestly thought it was a joke.

I tried to watch Arrow...sigh...it's just so poorly written.  It's like 45 mins of *pure* exposition.  My god people stop standing around talking about the plot and DO SOMETHING!!! 

I can't wait for Cleopatra!  That will be epic.

kerjen Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2014
Nope, Matt did it seriously. He even used those words so Moffat knew he wasn't joking. And Moffat announced River's story is done. So she's gone. I'm really sad about it; l've been looking forward to seeing Alex play what she called the really loving and passionate RiverxDoctor relationship. And it was all set up too. Especially with those lines from "Time of Angels" about photos and the Doctor with the non-baby face. Moffat and the DW producer even said those lines still hold true now.

But I'm in the minority; most River fans are fine. So don't go by me. :)

Yeah, I tuned into Arrow to support Alex, but I can't watch that show. Ugh. I'm amazed it does so well.
