Will River Song return to Doctor Who? Alex Kingston has been asked that very question, and you can read her answer here...

The Radio Times has posted some hints of what to expect from Graham Norton’s interview with Alex Kingston, which is set to be broadcast on his chat show on Friday night.

Kingston, soon to appear in the second series of the BBC’s new Upstairs Downstairs, was asked whether the character of River Song would return to Doctor Who at any point. And she notably refused to rule it out.

"You may see her again. Who knows?" she teased. "Let's just say, Upstairs Downstairs and Doctor Who don't film at the same time."

She also revealed to Norton that she knew “for the whole of the last series” about her character’s specific relationship to Amy Pond, although the other actors didn’t. “They discovered it in that episode when they read the script”, she said, referring to A Good Man Goes To War.

Our suspicion is that we might be seeing River Song at some point during the show’s 50th birthday celebrations, but that’s just us speculating. The story at the Radio Times is here.
