  1. Spoilers! Alex Kingston Thinks River Song Could Return to Doctor Who

    "I haven’t been told I’m done [on the show]."

    Love her or not, River Song is an important character in the life of our favorite time-and-space-traveling Madman in a Box. So it would make sense for her to return for an interaction with another one of The Doctor's faces on Doctor Who. Well, Alex Kingston seems to think that there's a strong possibility that River will interact with Capaldi's Doctor!

  4. The BBC Thought David Tennant & Benedict Cumberbatch Weren’t Attractive Enough For Audiences

    Hello Sweetie

    Everyone's opinions vary as to what they find sexually desirable but I think it's safe to say a lot of people find David Tennant and Benedict Cumberbatch attractive. That's why it's surprising to hear the BBC doesn't agree.

  8. Captain Jack and River Song, Together at Last

    Hello Sweetie

    If there's one thing that's certain about an episode of Doctor Who with both Captain Jack and River Song in it, it's that it would be 90% made up of absolutely shameless flirting, and 10% made of the Doctor being exasperated. But don't get crazy yet, Whovians, John Barrowman and Alex Kingston aren't working together for the first time on Who. They'll both be appearing on Arrow later this season, Barrowman in his recurring role, and Kingston as (probably) the original Black Canary. Barrowman himself tweeted this picture this weekend. Previously in Arrow

  9. Alex Kingston Joins Arrow, Could be the Original Black Canary?

    Great Hera!

    Arrow isn't a great show by any stretch of the imagination, but I respect it for what it's trying to do and have some hopes that eventually it will succeed. And let's be real: I also enjoy the near constant references to obscure facets of the DC universe and it's liberal borrowing from the Batman canon for villains and supporting characters. It's those bits that keep the nerd in me casually watching it in the background of my other activities. With the addition of Alex Kingston to the cast, however, the show's going to pique the interest of an entirely different fandom.

  10. The Mary Sue Interviews Karen Gillan of Doctor Who

    Interview

    As we promised a few days ago in our Doctor Who Season 7 premiere photo gallery, we've got three very special interviews from our time spent with stars Matt Smith and Karen Gillan, as well as new Executive Producer Caroline Skinner at the event. Since Gillan is a fellow redhead, I've decided to let her go first! See what she had to tell us about her own time travel preferences, how she feels about leaving the long-running sci-fi series, and who she thinks could make a great female Doctor.

  11. New Doctor Who Promo Previews Ponds and Puns

    The World Doesn't End Because the Doctor Dances

    It was officially (finally) announced today that Doctor Who returns to our lives in less than two weeks. As if that wasn't enough to freak out about, we also have this new trailer for season seven. As one can expect with Who, the trailer is an interesting blend of hilarity, action, and impending doom. Oh, and puns. It's also the first time this season I've heard anyone within the story mention something about the Ponds leaving voluntarily, which bodes well with my prayers that they won't be killed off in some horrible fashion.

  12. Here Is a Shot of River Song From the New Season of Doctor Who

    The World Doesn't End Because the Doctor Dances

    Shooting continues on Doctor Who season seven, and after a wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey romp through New York City, the cast and crew are back in Cardiff, and joined by River Song herself, Alex Kingston. We hear there is something to do with River posing as a mobster, so proceed with caution because there might be spoilers ahead, sweetie!

  13. Genre Stars Give Us The Definitive Spoiler Rules [VIDEO]

    the internet is serious business

    There's been extra spoiler arguments lately due to recent happenings on The Walking Dead. Hell, even AMC accidentally spoiled something on their website. We do our best here at The Mary Sue to make sure we don't spoil anything for you but we all make mistakes sometimes. (When debating a spoiler just yesterday, Jamie asked me if a baby could have been conceived and born since the time the event took place. That's her rule.) But for those who blatantly spoil entertainment for the rest of us, a few Hollywood actors are here to lay down the law. Nelsan Ellis (Lafayette from True Blood), Andre Royo (Bubbles from The Wire), Julie Benz (Rita from Dexter), Michael Trucco (Anders from Battlestar Galactica), Sarah Wayne Callies (Lori from The Walking Dead), and Masi Oka (Hiro from Heroes) present the spoiler rules. The only missing thing from this video? Alex Kingston's River Song. (via College Humor)

  16. Alex Kingston and Craig Ferguson Talk The Doctor Who Movie and Neil Gaiman

    It Goes Ding When There's Stuff

    Everybody knows that Craig Ferguson is the biggest nerd on Late Night television (sorry, Jimmy, but you know it's true), so it should come as no surprise that when he had Alex Kingston on last night to talk about the recently released Like Crazy, the do absolutely no such thing and just start talking about steampunk, Neil Gaiman, and how Matt Smith smells. Enjoy. Previously in Craig Ferguson

  17. Lost In Austen Trailer Is Literary Vacation

    This Exists... Because of A Lady

    You've probably inserted yourself into a Jane Austen novel once or twice (or a hundred) times in your life but what would you actually do if you literally wound up in one? This trailer for Lost in Austen shows us we'd probably muck everything up. For those not in the know (like me), Lost in Austen was a 2008 British mini-series. The synopsis is as follows: "Amanda, an ardent Jane Austen fan, lives in present day London with her boyfriend Michael, until she finds she's swapped places with Austen's fictional creation Elizabeth Bennet." Hilarity ensues of course. Written by Guy Andrews it stars Jemima Rooper in the starring role and Doctor Who's Alex Kingston as Mrs. Bennet! Oh and, in case you were wondering, it's on Netflix instant watch. (via io9)

  18. John Barrowman Thinks the Next Doctor Should Be a Woman, and We Will Not Argue With That

    And Now For Something Completely Different

    While speaking to the media in Glasgow, Scotland, John Barrowman said that after Matt Smith decides to call it a day and regenerate into the 12th Doctor, perhaps a woman should take the TARDIS controls on Doctor Who. He's even offered to put on a dress and do it himself. And once John Barrowman stops saying awesome things, we will stop posting them. (Dear John Barrowman: Never stop saying awesome things. Never.)

  19. Why, Matt Smith, What a Particularly Doctor-y Thing to Say

    i'll just leave this here

    I think River's too independent to ever be a full-time companion," Smith says. ''That's what makes River great as a character. ... The companions and the Doctor are doing their thing, then whoosh—in comes the hair. It just messes the Doctor up. -- Matt Smith, on River Song and the possibility of her becoming more than a recurrent character on Doctor Who. We's have to agree with you Doctor, River Song is far too awesome to be bogged down in your TARDIS. You know who else never got tied down? Captain Jack. He got his own spinoff series. Just. You know. Pointing out an interesting succession of events. (The Sun via Blastr.)
