“That’s not a plan, that’s just hoping!” – River Song in the mini-episode Rain Gods
This week, River Song fans got a treat via the upcoming series 7 box set of Doctor Who: a mini-episode featuring River Song and the Doctor on a date in the rain. [Check out the clip here.]
The scene came from the original opening sequence of The Doctor’s Wife, written by Neil Gaiman, which was cut due budget concerns. It was then rescued and restored in comic form, only to morph into this mini-episode, under Steven Moffat’s direction. [In the original draft, much of River's dialogue is spoken by Rory Williams. How's that for timey wimey?]
So, why is this so important, you ask?
The ESO crew concludes the Countdown to Halloween with a blazing campfire, some marshmallows, and our favorite ghost stories. Mike, Mike, and the award-winning author Bobby Nash are joined by Ghostbustin’ writer Erik Burnham and Halloween Legionnaires Martin Powell and Diana Leto for some spooky stories, terrorizing tales, and paranormal mysteries. Plus, The Bone Witch author Jason Asala faces something more frightening than Baba Yaga, The Geek Seat! All this, and the usual Rants, Raves, Khan Report, and Shout Outs!
