And so the sixth season of Doctor Who comes to a close with "The Wedding of River Song," a teaser of a title if there ever was one, and, thankfully, an episode in which a whole lot more happens than just a wedding. I haven't made any secret of the fact that I don't think this season was very good--spending so much time on River Song's life A) eradicates the compelling mystery of her character (regardless of how wonderful Alex Kingston is in the role), and B) is not why I tune in to Doctor Who--but I did think the finale was a good ending to the season. Provided you don't look at it too closely.
