Okay, so I haven't been shy about my feelings for River Song, and since I'm rewatching Flesh and Stone, I decided to blog some of my thoughts as I watched it. This two-parter is the first episode with River Song I saw, so it's special for me.
Random fact: First time I saw this, I thought River might be a Time Lord because she was called Doctor. Then cue season six, and
Doctor. The word for healer and wise man throughout the universe. We get that word from you, you know, but if you carry on the way you are, what might that word come to mean?
So I was right, in a way. And now that we know the truth of Amy and River's relationship, I love their scenes even more than before. River is so motherly and caring towards her, when it is actually the other way around. I'm a sucker for hurt/comfort and woobies, so I just get little heart pangs seeing the Angel come for Amy and that moment where the Angels almost grab her makes me gasp in relief.
