A to Z Challenge – Doctor Who cross stitch

H is for “Hello, sweetie”

“Hello, sweetie” is from fangirl stitches’ doctor who themed alphabet quotes.

These words mean one thing and one thing only – River Song. It’s her personal greeting to the Doctor, she calls him sweetie.

By far, my favorite

Her storyline runs parallel with the Doctor’s timeline, but the best thing about it is that their experiences and interactions largely occur out of sequence.

The simple fact that the first time he meets her is the last time she meets him.

Her identity is later explained through more misadventures between them – “spoilers” – she is actually the daughter of two companions. She is a “child of the Tardis” and the wife of the Doctor, specifically the eleventh incarnation.

The twelfth incarnation used the phrase to identify himself to River, who didn’t recognize him due to his regeneration. In a timey wimey way, River rephrases the line in the Doctor’s first encounter with her, saying her final farewell to the Doctor from her point of view.

Once again, I wasn’t particularly fond of River Song in the beginning. I’m unsure why, but she just seemed to rub me the wrong way. After seeing more of her when re-watching the series and viewing reruns, I found her character more and more enjoyable.

Very few companions can get the drop on the Doctor – River Song does it without breaking a sweat. Her backstory really endeared her to me, specifically that she’s the daughter of Amy Pond and Rory Williams.

I shall leave you with this compilation of “hello, sweetie”s from series 4 through 7, including a few extra exchanges between Eleven and River Song.
