River Song Returns For Doctor Who Christmas Special


Spoilers! River Song (Alex Kingston) is set to return to Doctor Who in the 2015 Christmas special.

According to the official site: “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 traveller River Song meets her husband’s new incarnation, in the form of Peter Capaldi, for the first time this Christmas.

“Day one of filming the eleventh Doctor Who Christmas special starts this week and is written by Steven Moffat, produced by Nikki Wilson and directed by Douglas Mackinnon (Doctor Who, Sherlock).

This will be Alex Kingston’s 16th episode as River.

Says Kingston, “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. Steven Moffat is on glittering form, 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!”

Steven Moffat adds, “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…”

The press release also, curiously, promises a “witty”  line-up of guest cast to join Alex. Um… witty? What the hell does that mean? A bunch of stand-up comedians? What do you think?
