River Song is made of Fail

Forever POTO

Hi. I'm Tina and your Mod!

This is River Song is fail, which is a new group to rant, vent, discuss and share our frustration, anger, annoyance, etc of Professor River song from Doctor Who Series 4: Episodes
Forest of the Dead (2008)  and Silence in the Library (2008). The character was played by Alex Kingston and which was written by Steven Moffet- Not that we are suggesting that we hate Alex or Steven…Just the character of River Song.


From the Doctor Who Wiki page:


She is assumed to have an unusually intimate relationship with the Doctor, since she is the only person to know his real name. Unlike most classic series companions but like most new series companions, she seems to take shorter trips with the Doctor, living a more or less normal life between trips, rather than have one extended trip with the Doctor and never see him again after parting ways.

Please Submit: Stories, discussions, macros, avatars, basically anything that will help you rant or vent.

 Just some rules
1. Cut Spoilers
2. No member bashing
3. Nothing is too stupid to be posted
4. Its for the Lolz! Please no mean spiritness
5. No bashing River's looks. 
6. No bashing Alex Kingston

After seeing some of the comments made in other communities and one already made here I would like to respectfully ask that you add a rule about not bashing Alex Kingston in any way. Saying anything about the physical appearance of the character (comments about her hair, calling her ugly, etc) is an insult to the actress, not the character on the show.

Thank you.

People are bashing Alex? Really? I've never seen her before and I thought she was really pretty.

I think she beautiful. But yeah. After the first episode aired I read posts saying they didn't like River because she was 'ugly' and someone here has called her hair frizzy and looking like roadkill. Disliking the character is one thing. It makes me sad, but it is a fictional character, after all. Bashing looks is about insulting the actress, a real live person.

*deep breath*

Sorry, it's a peeve of mine.

No i agree. Hating a character just based on looks is really pathetic. I dislike River for so many reasons

and i love Alex.such a great actress!

Thanks, sweetie. I wasn't sure if I should say anything or not.

Thank you for bringing that to my attention!

In defense of the person who made that comment, as she is a RL friend of mine, while she doesn't like River's hair, she also dislikes many other things about the character, and she has even said herself that Alex Kingston can and does look very pretty, just that her hair as River Song looked rather bad. I don't think this is bashing the actress, personally. But then again, I know the person who made the comment, and I know she didn't mean it that way.

Oh yes!

great idea

As i mentioned before. Its not about Alex Kingston at all. Its just the character!

I will add said rule and thank you for bringing that to my attention
