The Doctor meets River Song at the end of River's life when she is leading an exploration at a library that encompasses the entire planet. At this time in The Doctor's life, he had yet to meet River Song but she knew him well and she had in her possession a sonic screwdriver and knows his name which the Doctor finds a bit baffling. She dies in the second part of the two part story in which we first meet her. She gives her life for the exploratory team and is placed inside the machine that controls the library by the Doctor to live on in virtual reality.

River Song reveals in The Husbands of River Song that she is in love with the Doctor. The Doctor has never been romantic without anyone before. However on this occasion, he takes her to the singing mountains where he has a dinner with her.

Melody Pond
