Yes, it's River Song (Alex Kingston), the mysterious archeologist who has apparently met the Doctor many times in her past — and his future. Are we about to see their first meeting, from her perspective? And what's that gadget she's holding? To be honest, I'm not sure how I'll feel following the relationship between the Doctor and River Song, all the while knowing that in the end, he's going to trap her in an insipid virtual afterlife with two weird children.

You'll notice, also, that the TARDIS has been redesigned and sports a somewhat more 1960s look, including the St. John's Ambulance cross. [BlogtorWho and The Sun]

Gah, unless River Song shows up before he regenerates, that leaves a major plot hole. She recognized the David Tennant Doctor and didn't realize at first he was younger than the one she knew. That means she HAS to know him for at LEAST a little while as David Tennant for that part to make sense.

I have a feeling she doesn't go up to random guys and say "Okay, let's see... Did we do the picnic at Raxacoricofallapatorius yet? No, let's see, how about stargazing at the Medusa Cascade?"
