Alex Kingston on ‘Doctor Who,’ ‘Downton Abbey,’ and ‘Upstairs Downstairs’ - The Daily Beast
First: MAJOR SPOILERS. You may want to save this interview for after Saturday night.
Second: it’s a really good piece about Alex and all that she has been up to including, of course, Doctor Who.
These days, Kingston is most recognizable for her role as fan favorite Professor River Song on Doctor Who. Originally slated to appear in just two episodes of the immensely popular science fiction series in 2008, the character proved to be so popular after her death that River’s creator, current Who head writer Steven Moffat, brought her back, enmeshing River and the Doctor (Matt Smith) in an ongoing storyline reminiscent of The Time Traveler’s Wife. As the two cross paths at different points in time, each is never sure what shared events have occurred yet or which way the other is traveling.
