Alex Kingston-'River Song/Melody Pond'. She first encountered No 10 as 'Professor Song'. Though he didn't recognize her, she kept hinting there is/are regeneration(s) where she knows him. No 11 turns out to be her Doctor. He knows her as 'Dr River Song'. His future is her past. She is 'Melody Pond', daughter of 'Amy Pond'/ 'Rory Williams', conceived in the TARDIS which is why she is called the Child of the TARDIS. She was taken at birth and trained to be the one to kill The Doctor.
My grandmother's library. It was a little room with warm light filtering through the window with a seat. It smelled full of musty books from the floor to the ceiling.

Connecting lives of the past to future a link not to be broken for eternity.
