9 Characters Who Should Return to 'Doctor Who'
Showrunner Steven Moffat says he's open to Captain Jack and River Song's return.
Time may be a flat circle on True Detective, but on Doctor Who, it's more like a big ball of wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey stuff.

Right now, though, we're fixated on the fact that it means any guest star from the beloved BBC show's run can — and in some cases, should — return.
