Could Madame Kovarian Return?

Picked up the new Doctor Who Magazine? Well, maybe you should – because showrunner, Steven Moffat, talks about the Kovarian chapter…

Last seen in The Wedding of River Song (seriously, how many times am I gonna write, The “Weeding” of River Song?!), Madame Kovarian was name-checked in Matt Smith’s swansong, The Time of the Doctor. In The Weeding (um, you did it again – Ed), Kovarian died. But that all happened in a timeline that never was, so, as Moffat says…

“Kovarian, logically, is still alive. The whereabouts remain a terrible mystery. Will she return to menace the Doctor again? Will she ever resume her once happy marriage with Tasha Lem (just a thought, but imagine the domestics!). Perhaps…

But let’s be honest: if Amy Pond, River Song, and a two-thousand-year-old Centurian who blows up Cyber fleets for emphasis were all pissed off with you at once, you might stay quiet for a bit.”

And as he notes, you can listen to the moment when Frances Barber realised her on-screen persona was still alive by putting on the ep’s commentary.

So c’mon, who’d like to see Barber’s kinky Eye-Patch Woman return – maybe with the Silence in tow?


When he’s not watching television, reading books ‘n’ Marvel comics, listening to The Killers, and obsessing over script ideas, Philip Bates (Kasterborous' Assistant Editor) pretends to be a freelance writer. He enjoys collecting everything.
