The craziest Pond has had more adventures with the Doctor than was shown on Who, as was implied multiple times on the show. It definitely deserves more than a couple of 3-minute webisodes (Night and the Doctor), for the sheer awesomeness of the character alone.
I mean, I, personally, would follow that show more avidly than the gradually depreciating Torchwood series. Not that there is something wrong with Jark Harkness, that character definitely deserved the spin-off, only that the show went a totally different way than expected.
A River Song spin-off may not yet be in Steven Moffatt’s mind, nor would fans (Doctor Who/Sherlock) want to divide his attention, but here are five reasons to think about when deciding for yourselves whether or not River deserves a full spin off TV Show or at least, more of the shorter fast-paced minisodes sampled by Night and the Doctor.

5. The Pond Life
Not all of the fans have gotten over the Ponds just yet, and I believe that most would love having River visit her childhood friends-slash-parents from time to time. That surely would be nice for family-centric episodes. Whether it be the constant confusing timeline crisscrossing or the Rory/Amy/Melody younger trio, it would create its own Pond dedicated happy endings that all Pond worshipers would cherish.
