RIVER SONG Returns This CHRISTMAS!
by Joey Pedras (@joeypedras)
The BBC has just announced that River Song (Alex Kingston) will be returning to the Tardis in this year’s Christmas special! The filming for the Christmas special will begin this week. This is what Kingston had to say on returning to Doctor Who,
“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?
It will be an absolute thrill to see how River reacts with Peter Capaldi’s incarnation of the Doctor. It surely won’t be overly sappy like it was with Eleven or will it be…?
Here’s what Stephen Moffat had to say on the return of River, and the Christmas special,
“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…”
Doctor Who returns Saturday, September 19th.
