"Not sure if I am an evil genius, or just someone who watches too much TV"
I am a Texas college student (studying Management of Information Systems), and I am a Tech enthusiast, computer geek and sci-fi fan.
I queue most posts but will do a post dump about once every few weeks.
and since this seems to be the main question you guys ask I am 5'6" tall, so ask me other things (funner things) also before you ask I am taken.
basically one of my “happy endings” for River is for the doctor to upload a copy of himself for River to have in the library. I mean she loves him so she would want to be with him.
but some people say well you can’t just upload a copy, he would have to die. well you are wrong.
the people in the library were uploaded by just being teleported. so CAL has access to the transport buffers. and since bits are bits given the proper commands the computer core could store a copy of what was teleported. she might not be able to rematerialize it but she could keep a digital copy.
so all the doctor would have to do is give the computer core the right commands and just teleport. and then a copy would be made for River to keep, just like how Rose got tentoo.
(seriously though, if you can bypass DRM all files are copyable so if CAL can store a person as a file (like how she did the residence of the library to protect them from the vashta nerada) she can copy that person and store that copy in the virtual world)
OK, I haven’t finished season one yet but this is a theory
Sarah was the original. That is why she wasn’t monitored and was able to have a child.
often cloned or genetically engineered entities have issues reproducing (they have had their DNA ripped apart, so it is hard enough to get it work much less able to properly recombine with someone else’s).
first off you need to know the origin story for River. suposibly Moffat and Davis were joking about some of the names of episodes and how they could spell things with the episode names, and they had a bit of a competition on what was the dirtiest word they could have the tittle spell out. That was when Moffat came up with “A River Song End” AKA ARSE, this kind of grew as he started creating this character River Song and how she was important enough to have her name be the tittle. That was the birth of River.
so basically I think he will have to finish the joke, he has to have River’s last episode be called that. it will probably start with the doctor taking River to the singing towers and then he watches from the shadows in the library. he will have an internal crisis, trying to fight becoming the “timelord victorious” and wanting to destroy the timeline to save River. and she will know he is there and at the point when she knocks out ten she calls over “her doctor” and tells him that this is how it has to be, he can’t stop her. we might have some parallels to the Wedding of River Song. and at the end we finally have the doctor give her the proper good bye as he visits her and the kids in the computerized dream land.
but then moffat in his classic moffat style will give us one more episode, the doctor is grieving when a young River sees the doctor for one last trip (for him) and he has to hide his feelings as he can’t tell her that he just watched her die.
Ok so first off with the Name of the Doctor we learned that the silence aren’t exactly bad guys or enemies of the doctor. they are just the worlds shitiest allies, I mean if the doctor knew the harm that allowing the GI to access his time line he would probably killed himself (if there was no other option), but instead of telling him that if he went to trenzalor and spoke his name his timeline would be erased and all the good he has done will be undone they decided to take it on themselves to kill him (and had an overly complicated method too). I mean not only did he have to fight them all the way (to get the to lay off so he could fix it himself) and commit genocide, they also really upset him by taking his friends. I mean the only good thing that came out is that he got an equal.
also the war between the silence and the doctor may not be with The Doctor but with “the Doctor” who didn’t live up to his name (and hopefully it will be explained) or with the changes that the GI caused.
… or why I think Moffat set up the perfect scenario to save River from the Library in the series finale.
read this, read it now.
this person did excellent research and has an amazing theory. It is something I really want and with this I really believe it will happen. so read and reblog, this person deserves all the notes.
he was suspicious of Clara, what was she? was she a trap? a spy? so the last thing he would tell her is what his greatest weakness was, his wife. if he told Clara (if Clara was a threat) then she would know how to hurt him, how to manipulate him, take the woman he loves and hurt her.
so his not telling Clara wasn’t because he doesn’t love River, but because he does love River. and by keeping their real relationship hidden he was protecting her.
He goes “I am the Doctor and my name is…” and it cuts to some point in space or some planet. we hear some spacey wacey noise as something appears or unlocks (from a timelock or something) and from it something leaves it.
basically it plays on the idea that the doctor used his real name to seal something in, something awful, something from Timelord stories (why Romana didn’t ask his name and why he is the only timelord whose name isn’t spoken). and they use this to give us something to see and hear to distract us from his name (old magicians trick).
this is what the wispermen or what ever are after and what the silence fear (the silence weren’t acting in malice but to protect the universe from this evil in their own ends over means method). and this is the great task that requires more doctors to solve (like how one and two were needed to help three fight omega) or it could effect all universe which is why tentoo and Rose zap over like how she did in stolen earth.
also that would make River a part of the 50th because she wouldn’t just leave in the middle of a fight (unless the doctor knew she would be a prime target (as she is a big weakness to him, he is very emotional and she is the woman he loves easy bait) and he is forced to trick her into leaving, sonicing her VM and zapping her to the past and trapping her or something).
so ya this is my main theory, I have a secondary one too. that instead he makes some weird noise, very high pitch or something making it hard to replicate or anything, and only River understands (as she is (basically) a timelady so her body and mind will be more attune to understanding it). if so I hope at the very end he adds “Song” or “Pond” to it or River jokes about adding it on (as the doctor made Rory take Amy’s name River makes him take hers)
C’mon, we are not going to know the Doctors actual name by the end of series seven.
Moffat just wouldn’t blow it out of the water after 50 years. Even if he did, what improvement would that bring to the show? Yes, we know his name now, fabulous, what’s the next adventure?
I believe that he will tell River, and River only, in secret. She’ll leave, something will happen to her and that Lux lot in the Library, and she will send the SOS to his psychic paper, but it will not reach Eleven, but reach Ten. And that will be it. End of River Song.
We knew this episode was coming for a few years now.
or we get a weird cut to clara at a different location or its just some weird non repeatable noise which only can be understood or spoken by timelords (and that is why River was the only person who was able to properly remember it and repeat it to ten, which is also why he was in disbelief in the library because only timelords would be able to repeat it and all of them are dead)
first off I think ten found a way to store the timelord part of Donna (well all of the Donna he knew). most likely using the chameleon arch as it would be an easy way to try to remove the timelord part of her so that she wouldn’t be hunted for it. and from that he uploaded her to CAL.
She would help take care of the kids (as they were hers) and keep River company and such. this fits in a larger head canon that the Doctor is turning CAL into a new Matrix to keep companions safe (and so that he can visit them at night).
Also I think that the doctor set up some more protection for her (more than the regeneration bomb). first off he got some of his friends to help out. Jack for one would help, he could use Torchwood’s resources to keep track of her. Sarah Jane would also help, by befriending Donna and Donna’s Mum, and just making sure that nothing is surfacing with Donna. Martha, Micky, and UNIT would also help.
I have a bit of a head canon that UNIT keeps track of people who have had alien contact and monitors and helps them. Sometimes it’s recruiting them like Martha, sometimes its protection, sometimes its just helping them get set up and leaving them alone, and sometimes it is providing medical care (as some of the medical history and parts of biology (weather its alien physiology, unexplainable damage, or non-terrestrial medical care) might raise some questions in the mainstream medical system).
but back to Donna. the groups would probably pose as Wilfs friends, maybe and astronomy club or something. and Wilf probably wouldn’t mind, he could have friends who he could tell about his experiences and swap stories with (and not think that he is crazy).
also the reason Donna gets this much protection is simple. she is more vulnerable. She can’t remember her times with the Doctor so she isn’t going to suspect that she would be a target. She also wouldn’t remember the stuff she had learned, weather how to BS her self to safety or how to take down a Sontaran.
finally she is a more interesting target, she is a tiny bit timelord (from the meta crisis) and since some groups are VERY interested in procuring timelord DNA (as River said, they would rip the world apart just for one cell). so if she was discovered they would take her and try to extract what they can.
