Alex Kingston – Doctor Who Series 7, Episode 5 Filming →
While I never doubted, and I mean never, that Alex wouldn’t be back for the upcoming season of Doctor Who (whispers hinted at this last year) it has “finally” been confirmed that she will be in at least one episode this season. But lets hope for more than one.
Spoilers, sweetie! Anyone who has missed “Doctor Who” since it ended it’s last season is going to be thrilled with this news. Before our TV’s made sad faces and the season ended, we saw River Song (Alex Kingston) finally marry her Doctor (Matt Smith) and reveal herself to her daughter Amy (Karen Gillan) and her husband Rory (Arthur Darvill).
The upcoming season will be the last for Amy and Rory before the new companion, played by Jenna-Louise Coleman enters the scene. They’ll be departing in episode 5, Season 7, and are currently in New York filming the final moments. We got you some leaked pictures, if you want to see them in action.
We know there will be Weeping Angels, arguably the scariest of the “Doctor Who” villains. Now we know that River Song will be there to say goodbye to her mother in 1940′s NYC. Creator Steven Moffat said in a statement, “Not everyone gets out alive and I mean it this time.” Oh dear.
A casting call went out in New York for a photo double for Kingston, saying that the actress must be able to drive.

River Song should have her own venue that chronicles her adventures when not with the Doctor.
John, I disagree.
The first time I saw the current series of the good doctor was when iTunes had that first episode free. Wasn’t impressed. We yanks are used to television series having near movie like special effects and most of the effects in that first episode weren’t impressive.
My next exposure was River’s first episode, towards the end where she gives her life for the good doctor. While completely covered in that white space suit there was something very sensual and sexy about this woman and her performance was powerful to the point that her sacrifice saddened me, despite not knowing who she was or what the heck was going on in that episode.
The impression was strong enough that when iTunes put the first 5 seasons on sale, I scooped them all up (did that take a while to download!). I grew to appreciate the caliber of the writing and storytelling.
The first time I saw the episode complete, I felt sorry for the captain of the expedition when River told him “I don’t fancy you”. I would have been crushed.
Having not seen Alex in anything outside of Dr. Who yet (I know shame on me) I don’t know how much of River Song is Alex and how much is the writing, but I do know that both are one powerful combination that should be used sparingly as to not dilute her impact on the screen.
I like the little goosebumps I get when she says “Hello sweetie” or “spoilers”…
“we know that River Song will be there to say goodbye to her daughter in 1940′s NYC”
i am confused, River’s Daughter? Or that she is the daughter of Amy and Rory?
WOW! I didn’t even notice that. Great catch. I have no idea why Zap2It wrote River’s daughter. But yes River is Amy and Rory’s daughter.
