Alex Kingston returns to Doctor Who as River Song

If you haven’t watched the Doctor Who Christmas Special 2015 ‘The Husbands of River Song‘ yet, you may not know British actress Alex Kingston returned to Doctor Who this week for the first time in two years as The Doctor’s wife River Song. It was the first time she played opposite Peter Capaldi‘s Doctor.


And as excited as fans are to see River Song back in an episode, what does Kingston herself think about returning to Doctor Who?

She is just as excited, if not more so, as she told the BBC in a short Doctor Who promotional video recently.

“Whenever I get a phone call to say Steven’s thinking of bringing you into a storyline, I get super excited because I know it means it’s one of Steven’s scripts (Steven Moffat)”.

“I know I’m going to have fantastic one-liners, and I know I’m going to go on an amazing adventure”, Kingston said.

As for if Kingston has a favorite River Song moment out of all the scenes she’s acted in, and if she is the same bad girl River herself can be, you will have to watch the video to find out.
