Series 4 Big Casting News

The BBC has announced the casting of ER‘s Alex Kingston and former James Bond co-star Colin Salmon in Series 4 of Doctor Who.

They join the already confirmed Sarah Lancashire, Felicity Kendal, Lesley Sharp, Georgia Moffett, Lindsey Coulson, Fenella Woolgar, Tim McInnerny, Peter Capaldi, Phil Davis and Tracey Child.

Alex Kingston, best known to British audiences for her role as Moll Flanders, will appear in a Steven Moffat penned two-parter as “River Song” – a mysterious character who meets The Doctor on an expedition to uncover the secrets of an abandoned library.

Alex Kingston comments: “I used to watch Doctor Who through the crack in the door. I was so terrified but I couldn’t tear myself away. I loved it so much and I’m so delighted to be a part of the new series.”

Two very strong names to add to those already present.
