Big News: Alex Kingston will return to Doctor Who for the Christmas Special 2015.

I think they realized that the comings and goings of people to the studios in Cardiff are being watched pretty carefully and that they couldn’t hold off announcing Alex Kingston’s return to Doctor Who as Professor River Song much longer since she’s already in Cardiff and shooting is beginning.

Alex Kingston comments on her reappearance:

To be honest, I did not know whether River would ever return to the show, but here she is, back with the Doctor for the Christmas special. Steven Moffat is on glittering form, giving us an episode filled with humor and surprise guest castings. I met Peter for the first time at Monday’s read through. We had a laugh, and I am now excited and ready to start filming with him and the Doctor Who team. Christmas in September?, why not!

Showrunner Steven Moffat also said:

Another Christmas, another special for Doctor Who – and what could be more special than the return of Alex Kingston as Professor River Song? The last time the Doctor saw her, she was a ghost. The first time he met her, she died. So how can he be seeing her again? As ever, with the most complicated relationship in the universe, it’s a matter of time…

As if you couldn’t guess, the episode will air on Christmas Day 2015.

I can’t wait to see Kingston and Capaldi together.
