This short sequence, written by Neil Gaiman, began life as a deleted scene from “The Doctor’s Wife”. It was subsequently re-written by Mark Buckingham as a comic, featuring Amy, Rory and the Doctor, for the 2012 Doctor Who Brilliant Book. But that is not where this story ends – Neil Gaiman then re-wrote it to feature as this minisode on the Season 7 box set.
It’s a a bit of fun that gives us yet another glimpse into the married life of River and the Doctor. Their date, as we have come to expect, goes a little wrong and a plan is required. Their relationship is still something that holds my interest about Doctor Who, so this little peep pleases me muchly.
