BBC One has posted the 2012 Christmas line up trailer and there are new (spoilerlicious) moments in there from the Doctor Who Christmas Special ‘The Snowmen’.
Click play if you dare.
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.”

my sweet sweet friend kevin coppa posted this around the holidays, and i have been meaning to share… you see, he’s a huge doctor who fan (much like myself). he cosplays a dead on 10th doctor. at sdcc 2011, he had the honor of posing with matt smith, karen gillan, and a team of awesome whovian cosplayers. during a december airing of graham norton, matt smith talks about his sdcc experience. he then pulls out his camera phone to show off the photo with all the sdcc cosplayers! you get a great look at kevin and many more familiar cosplayers. but what tickled me the most was, “zomg, kevin’s on matt smith’s phone!” :D
