  • What's the point of River Song?


    What's the point of River Song? The point was supposed to be she was kidnapped as an infant and brainwashed to kill the doctor. Well when she first met the doctor as Melody, Amy & Rory's friend she for some reason didn't kill the doctor then when she had the perfect chance. Then she poisons him, thensuddenly turned good and saved him.

    Now we know she was the one inside the space suit. But she says she isn't doing anything, that it's the suit doing everything. Then what was the point? If River isn't in control and shooting him intentionally because of her brainwashing. Then what is the point of River Song?

    Itseems to me a mute point in even having her. If the suit is the one doing everything and River isn't in control. Then why did they go to all the trouble of kidnapping Amy replacing her then stealing her child? In the end they could have just thrown Amy in the suit and she could have done the job at any time. Since they already somehow had Amy in theirgrasp, if the suit is doing all the work why take her child?
