Also, I agree to very much with the bit about his arrogance. Also, that bit contradicts things said by the TARDIS herself in one of Moffat’s own seasons/series.
TARDIS: Do you ever wonder why I chose you all those years ago?

TARDIS: Of course I was. I wanted to see the Universe so I stole a Time Lord and I ran away. And you were the only one mad enough.
True to all of this. But to the point about River knowing his name, I’m pretty sure he told her when they were married????
