The Christmas special this year is even worse: The Doctor, the cuckolded buffoon. Or the beta who settled unknowingly for sloppy seconds, with River Song who was willing to sleep with men for material gain.
Steven Moffat, I blame you.
And River Song pleads for the Doctor to prolong her life; the Doctor says he cannot, even though he had just attempted to do so (and succeeded) for his companion Clara. So River Song wasn't as important as Clara, the Doctor wasn't willing to break all the rules for his own wife?
