Moffat confirms the return of a familiar face to the forthcoming run of Doctor Who episodes, creating an unusual love triangle...

Warning: contains a returning character spoiler for series 7b.

Depending on how closely you've followed the hints, nods, and winks that have made up the press run for the forthcoming episodes of Doctor Who, you'll either know or you won't about the imminent reappearance of a familiar face. Not the Cybermen (though they're back too), nor the Ice Warriors (ditto), but Alex Kingston as River Song, the Doctor's sometime wife.

Talking to Entertainment Weekly in the US, Steven Moffat confirmed that River would be appearing at some point in the new run, and that the resulting love triangle between she, the Doctor, and new companion Clara, aka the impossible girl with whom Matt Smith's Doctor is "smitten", would afford the show "some mileage", but "not in the ways you'll think". 

Moffat also spoke to EW about the 50th Anniversary episode, about which he said, "It is important that you don't turn it into a fanfest. We can't make this all about looking backwards. It's actually got to be the start of a new story." Take a look at EW's Who covers below.
