Let's Check In on the Doctor Who Fanbase to See How They're Handling the Return of River Song

2 September 2015 11:30 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

"Hello, sweetie." When we read the joyous news that River Song would be making her triumphant return to Doctor Who this December, the first thing we did was obviously get a jump on our Twelfth Doctor-River Song fan fiction that's titled "Sex Storm: The Sexpocalypse." And then we checked in on the Doctor Who fanbase to see how they were handling the fact that Alex Kingston and Peter Capaldi would finally be making acting magic together. To sum up, Whovians are basically like this right now: Not only is River a fan-favorite, but when executive producer Steven Moffat talked about possibly leaving her character off the show for good, we got this amazing description from writer Russell T. »

Alex Kingston Headed Back To Doctor Who

2 September 2015 8:44 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

In her more recent appearances, Alex Kingston’s River Song has become something of a divisive character for Doctor Who fans. Some finds her insouciant charms liven things up whenever she crashes into the Doctor’s life, while others find her grating and overused. Depending on your thoughts towards her, she’ll be back to pester the Doctor – in this case Peter Capaldi’s incarnation – for this year’s Christmas special.Announced by the Beeb, the now traditional special episode is being kept wrapped up in shiny Santa-covered paper for now, with no details on what will happen in the episode or who is joining Kingston as the rest of the guest cast (so no spoilers, sweetie). But we suppose having her anywhere near the Who team’s base of operations is enough to start tongues wagging, so the decision was taken to announce her return. “To be honest, I »
