!! So Alex Kingston is coming back to reprise her role of River Song with Peter Capaldi’s Doctor!! So far it’s set for the Christmas special and nothing has been released beyond that.
I believe the last time we saw Song was in the “The Name Of The Doctor” eps. That would be Matt Smith’s last full run as the Doctor and with the ever famous line “Spoilers”. Here’s the synopsis for the episode:
“It’s Christmas Day in the future and the TARDIS is parked on a snowy village street, covered in icicles, awaiting its next adventure. Time traveler River Song meets her husband’s new incarnation, in the form of Peter Capaldi, for the first time this Christmas.”
This eps is written by Mister Moffat & directed by Douglas Mackinnon. In an interview with the official press bumf Alex Kingston said:
“To be honest, I did not know whether River would ever return to the show, but here she is, back with the Doctor for the Christmas special,” said Alex Kingston in the official press bumf.
“Steven Moffat is on glittering form,” she added, “giving us an episode filled with humour and surprise guest castings. I met Peter for the first time at Monday’s read through, we had a laugh, and I am now excited and ready to start filming with him and the Doctor Who team. Christmas in September?, why not!”
Followed by Mister Moffat adding on to why the Doctor is seeing her again:
“Another Christmas, another special for Doctor Who – and what could be more special than the return of Alex Kingston as Professor River Song. The last time the Doctor saw her she was a ghost. The first time he met her, she died. So how can he be seeing her again? As ever, with the most complicated relationship in the universe, it’s a matter of time …”
It’s Doctor Who… No one really stays dead. Well almost haha. I would love to see Captain Jack come back 😦 … But I don’t see that happening tho sadly.
