Summary: The Doctor has changed and it's not just the face.
The Doctor stood outside the TARDIS, taking in a barren landscape comprised of gold and yellow and brown, but no sign of Melody Pond or River Song.
He’d known in his hearts that she wouldn’t be here. The trail through time and space was growing colder; his promise to Amy harder to keep. Meanwhile, on at least one version of Earth, something very bad was happening.
His priorities had shifted. Maybe Amy had changed him, or maybe it was River herself. Either way, Earth would have to solve its own problems for a change.
He had a baby to find.
