The character River Song on Doctor Who, the Doctor's so-called wife, was a recurring character during the years my wife was ill. She discovered the lump between the crash of the Byzantium and the opening of the Pandorica, and the second-to-last Doctor Who she saw was when the Doctor and River said goodbye. Listening to the soundtrack music I have for those years is something I do for the melancholy. So when it was announced River was being brought back for this year's Christmas special, for me that meant a story about my biggest hero getting one last visit with his wife long after their time together was done. In the event it was not as hard to watch as I thought it might be; and that disappoints me.
