Doctor Who: Alex Kingston, Steven Moffat and Russell T Davies on River Song's future

26 May 2015 1:41 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We may not have seen the last of Alex Kingston’s River Song in Doctor Who, according to the actress herself and Steven Moffat

Although the story of River Song has had more onscreen endings than most sci-fi romances (it started with an ending, after all), Alex Kingston believes her days of getting sassy with Time Lords may not be finished just yet.

When asked for a comment at Mega-Con, Kingston responded with “all I can say is… spoilers! But what I will say is the sonic screwdriver that I had in Silence In The Library, which had been given to me by the Doctor, is not the sonic screwdriver that has been seen… yet.”

Don’t you just love when actors remember such nerdy details? Will we ever get an answer as to which Doctor gave River that sonic, then? It’s hard to tell, but Kingston did add »

Steven Moffat may bring River Song back to Doctor Who

23 May 2015 5:39 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Doctor Who fans could see a return of River Song in the future.

Showrunner Steven Moffat said he hasn't ruled out the possibility of bringing Alex Kingston's character back at some point in the future.

He told Radio Times: "It entirely depends on whether we've got a good story.

"It's certainly not ruled out. I have a sort of worry about keeping anybody around in the Doctor's life for too long. Because he's the Man who Leaves."

Moffat's predecessor Russell T Davies is also championing her return to the show.

"I mentioned in passing to Russell that we were probably done with River," Moffat added. "He said, 'You can't be done with River! No, no, no. Capaldi and Kingston, it's a sex storm!"

Series nine of Doctor Who will air in the autumn on BBC One. »

Scorsese-Branagh 'Macbeth' Project Won't Be a Traditional Narrative Film

18 May 2015 11:49 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Earlier this year news came that Martin Scorsese was looking to tackle, in one way or another, an adaptation of William Shakespeare's Macbeth. Or rather, the scoop was that Scorsese was looking to direct an adaptation of Kenneth Branagh's stage adaptation of Macbeth, which Scorsese caught in New York and was apparently quite taken with. If that confuses you at all, you aren't alone, but hopefully this will clear things up a little. The Telegraph reports (via The Playlist) Scorsese's project will be more documentary than strict narrative adaptation, with the director filming Branagh's live production over the course of several weeks at the Leavesden Aerodrome, an airfield in Hertfordshire, England built during World War II. Branagh will reprise his role as the titular Macbeth, and he and Scorsese hope to reunite as many members of the production's original cast as possible including Alex Kingston ("Doctor Who"). This project is, »

Doctor Who: 60 things we learned from The Writer's Tale

26 March 2015 2:35 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

To end a week celebrating New Who's 10th birthday, here's a bumper list of Doctor Who titbits from Russell T Davies' The Writer's Tale...

We’ve touched on why The Writer’s Tale, the 2008 (expanded in 2010) compendium of correspondence between Doctor Who showrunner Russell T Davies and journalist Benjamin Cook, deserves a space on your bookshelf here.

In short, The Writer’s Tale is both a screenwriting masterclass and an unparalleled look behind the scenes of new Doctor Who. As well as following the production triumphs and emergencies as the show lurches “from one crisis to another”, it lets you witness story ideas being created in the wild. See pivotal Doctor Who moments tottering unsurely out of Davies’ mind like new-born giraffes and watch them transform into sleek, galloping beasts of majesty! Think of it like a classy David Attenborough doc on storytelling, with bonus David Tennant photos and chat about Tony from Skins. »

Doctor Who 10 years on: Where are the class of 2005 now?

23 March 2015 5:01 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

The world of Doctor Who has changed greatly in the space of just 10 years. The cast and crew have almost completely been replaced since 2005, including a number of new actors to play the errant Time Lord and his companions.

But what has happened to the class of '05? Where are Rose and Mickey now? What is the writer of 'Dalek' up to? And where can you see more work from the director of 'Rose'?

Here it is then, your guide to the main players of Doctor Who series one.

The Cast

After his three-month on-screen stint as the Doctor, Christopher Eccleston's career continued in much the same vein, taking in theatre, interesting television roles and the odd blockbuster.

Post-2005, the Northern actor went Stateside to take on the role of invisible man Claude in the Us series Heroes. From there, he popped up in a very amusing Doctor Who-esque cameo as Dr. »
