Alex Kingston: “I Will Always Say Yes.”

River Song herself, Alex Kingston, is interviewed in the current issue of Radio Times, dated 16th– 22nd March 2013.

River Song

In the Q&A, My Watchlist, the actress, who recently appeared in Who Do You Think You Are? and NCIS, reveals that she’d definitely be up for the return of River:

I’m so attached to that character. I never expected her to grow and develop in the way she has. You never know whether she’s going to be hard-ass or good. As long as Steven Moffat has storylines that include her, I will always say yes.

Alex has played River Song since 2008’s Silence in the Library/ Forest of the Dead, written by current-showrunner, Steven Moffat – in which she died! – and has since appeared in stories like The Pandorica Opens/ The Big Bang, A Good Man Goes To War and The Angels Take Manhattan. And with recent rumours about (SPOILERS!) a certain gravestone, it’s likely that we’ll see the Doctor’s humany-Time Lord wife again soon.


The issue also includes a brief article about the battle between Jenna-Louise Coleman and her (sorry, lads) boyfriend and Game of Thrones star, Richard Madden, over the upcoming late-March cover of the Radio Times; and a look back at the radio drama, now on BBC iPlayer, Hedda Gabler, which starred Big Finish companion, Sheridan Smith.

Plus, Saturday’s repeat of A Town Called Mercy is highlighted in the weekend’s Choices!

The Radio Times is out now, priced £1.60.


When he’s not watching television, reading books ‘n’ Marvel comics, listening to The Killers, and obsessing over script ideas, Philip Bates (Kasterborous' former Editor) pretends to be a freelance writer. He enjoys collecting everything. He is the co-founder of The Doctor Who Companion: http://thedoctorwhocompanion.com/
