Doctor Who: River Song makes an appearance THIS Christmas!

Spoiler alert!

BBC America has announced Alex Kingston will be reprising her role as Professor River Song in this year’s Christmas Special!

People have been waiting for River Song to meet her husband’s new carnation (Peter Capaldi) and it’ll be a beautiful Christmas Day when they meet. I wonder how River Song is going to deal with this new snarky version of the Doctor.

Doctor Who’s Christmas Special starts filming today in an episode written by showrunner Steven Moffat, produced by Nikki Wilson and directed by Douglas MacKinnon. Thanks to Moffat for listening to the fans who have been dying to see what the mischievous time traveler has been up to.

Moffat commented to BBC America, “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 …”

The last time we saw River Song was with the Eleventh Doctor trying to save him in The Name of the Doctor, to which he tells her, “you’re always here to me”. Now that Eleven is gone, it’s Twelve’s time with his wife!

Kingston commented, “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!”

Happy Christmas to us!
