Doctor: It must hurt.
River: Yes. The wrist is pretty bad too.
#THIS. #Don’t you see? They’ve reversed roles. She is to him what he is to his companions. The Doctor isn’t the one we see lying to try and make things better, #he isn’t the one hiding pain to console his friends, he isn’t the one sad and alone because he can’t talk about his past. #It’s River. #She’s his protector, #she’s The Doctor’s Doctor. And that’s why she’s a professor. A professor in archeology. #Because she can see what is from remnants of broken pieces #and the doctor is so broken that only an archeologist could know where to begin rebuilding
