Steven Moffat Talks about River Song in Series 7
Head-writer and showrunner Steven Moffat confirmed in an interview earlier in the week of the return of River Song (previously confirmed by Karen Gillan at Collectormania 2012 and confirmed by filming pictures). He Spoke about how Series 6 covered her 'big' story and this will be one of her smaller ones.
When talking about River's return in episode five, exec-producer Caroline Skinner said: "She's so the queen of mischief in this episode."
Steven Moffat also commented on the departure of both Amy and Rory, which will also occur in the New York-set episode five, and the later introduction of Jenna-Louise Coleman's new companion.
"When you start that story again, you've got a fresh take on it," he said. "You've got someone who's bemused by him, who doesn't know he has two hearts, and you meet him again through their eyes."
