We know that River Song will be back when Series 6 of Doctor Who resumes this September, but will her story arc continue into the recently confirmed seventh series?
While the answer to that questions lies in the head of executive producer Steven Moffat, Alex Kingston has shared her thoughts on her character’s overarching story.
Speaking in the latest issue of Doctor Who Magazine, Kingston said:
“I’d love to [return]. As long as we feel that there are still stories to tell, I’m happy to continue. It’s not often, as a woman, that you find such a fabulous, kick-ass role to play, but I think, in order to make her a fully-rounded character, there have to be real, hidden emotional depths that are slowly revealed, so I’m loving all that. She’s an amazing character.
“I love playing her, and I love that she’s been embraced – not just by parents, but also by kids, because that makes her sort of ageless. She’s naughty, irreverent and fun…and she gets the best entrances and exits every episode. Nothing is too bizarre for River. She’s fabulous.”
As for what secrets she thinks River has up her sleeve, Kingston teased:
“It’s science fiction and it’s Steven [Moffat] – so River could stand in some stormfield somewhere and suddenly lose her power to regenerate or, if she doesn’t have regenerative powers, she could gain them. Who knows. “
