During the filming of this upcoming weekend’s ‘The Graham Norton Show,’ Alex Kingston was asked if she would be reprising her role as the sassy time travelling semi –companion of the good Doctor. “You may see her again,” she insinuates, “Who knows? Let’s just say, ‘Upstairs Downstairs’ and ‘Doctor Who’ don’t film at the same time,” referring to her stint as Dr Blanche Mottershead on the British show ‘Upstairs Downstairs.’
Kingston does know more than what she reveals as, in true River Song style, showrunner Steven Moffat had told her before filming started last season who her parents were and she kept it to herself during filming with the other cast members. “I knew… for the whole of the last series. (The other actors) didn’t know and they were constantly trying to get it out of me. They discovered it in that episode (‘A Good Man Goes to War’) when they read the scripts.”
I kind of don’t want to watch this, because I imagine her refusing to tell more, and when asked why, saying simply, “Spoilers.” And if that doesn’t happen then I might cry.
