Anonymous: When you put your argument across about river and her character in TWORS you said 'Just look at how he reacts when Emma picks up on River’s presence in the Music Room' when talking about the doctor showing that's he's hurt over her death.. I was just wondering which part your talking about.. just watched it again and I can't get any river references at all. All Emma say's is "the music room is the heart of the house".
Clara and The Doctor go off to look for the well, because the ghost is called “The Witch of the Well.” But it’s not a literal well, because there is no well on the house grounds. (And what’s in a well? Water.) The Doctor is laughing about how he got Clara to agree to go with him to hunt for the ghost and right as they’re leaving Emma turns and says, “The music room is the heart of the house.” It’s also the spot of the major psychic activity in the house. (And what does a music room produce? Song.) The camera cuts back to The Doctor and his expression instantly changes: the smile drains from his lips, his fingers curl loosely, and his eyes shift to the corners of their socks as he resists looking to the side. He looks pained. Then he quietly, no fanfare this time, nods and walks away behind Clara.
Alec: He’s a liar. But you know? That’s often the way that it is…when someone’s seen a thing or two. Experience makes liars of us all. We lie about who we are, about what we’ve done -
Emma: And…about how feel?
Alec: Yes. Always. Always that.
Clara: So who was she? The lady with the funny name and the space hair?
The Doctor: An old friend of mine.
Clara: What? Like an ex?
The Doctor: Yes. An ex.
River: How are you doing that? I’m not really here.
The Doctor: You’re always here to me. And I always listen. And I can always see you.
River: Then why didn’t you speak to me?
The Doctor: Because I thought it would hurt too much.
River: I believe I could have coped.
The Doctor: No. I thought it would hurt me. And I was right.

"Don’t sit on that!" he snarled, charging for the figure.
"Why not?" the muffled voice returned, refusing to move. "It’s just…junk."
"It’s the most dangerous weapon in the universe!" The Warrior argued. He grabbed the figure by the arm, hauled it up, and pushed it out the door, latching the door behind the uninvited guest. When he turned back, he was still not alone: the figure was there as well, exactly where he’d wrenched it away from.
"You have to wonder what kind of man you are when your first reaction to someone sitting on your box is not ‘who are you?’ or ‘how did you get in?’ but rather ‘don’t sit on that!’"
The Warrior rounded the figure once and stopped before it. “Who?” he demanded.
"Who are you?"
"Don’t play games with me," he warned. "I’m not a man of games."
"Maybe you are and you just don’t know it." The figure stood up. "If you don’t even know who I am, certainly you mustn’t know who you are."
The Warrior lunged for the hood of the cloak, but no sooner had he tried, did he fumble over the box. His teeth slammed together so hard he thought they might fall out like broken China when he parted his lips. He rolled over and found the figure seated above him, once again perched on the box. “Who are you?”
The hissing from outside the hut seemed to grow deafening.
In this situation, I was Amy and Moffat was Mels.
But now we’ve got the War Doctor and saying, “Oh, yeah, War did this” is weird again.
