Guys, I just realized.
We all know The Doctor never wanted to make Amelia Pond wait 12 years for him to return and then another 2 years for him to take her into space and time. For some reason he was late both times.
The first time presumably did involve time travel since he told Amelia he would be back in five minutes. But somehow he ended up twelve years late, and when he got back Amy had just started dating Rory. The second picture had just happened.
The second time shouldn’t have involved time travel at all; he was just flying around the moon. Yet somehow he came back two years late and Amy and Rory were about to get married.
If The Doctor had only been five minutes, Amelia would have gone with him as a child and never even dated Rory. Melody Pond - child of the TARDIS - would never have been born. The TARDIS made Amy wait so that River Song could exist.
It’s not just that. The TARDIS has taken the Doctor pretty much everywhere he was NEEDED even if he wanted to go someplace else, she always took him to a time when he was needed by the people there.
The TARDIS turned the Doctor into a hero.
Doctor Who isn’t about the heroic Time Lord and his TARDIS. It’s about the heroic TARDIS and her Time Lord.
In a way the TARDIS created a wife for him. Oh she is such the romantic ;)
There is a language older by far and deeper than words. It is the language of bodies, of body on body, wind on snow, rain on trees, wave on stone. It is the language of dream, gesture, symbol, memory. We have forgotten this language. We do not even remember that it exists. [x]

#I wonder what River was thinking as she read the final countdown #probably that she’d seen a similar one once before #a long time ago #in a pyramid in the midst of all of time and space #where he had taken her hand and his bow tie and married her #funny how their life together had started with a clock #and how it would end with one
