Kingston “wasn’t surprised” by Smith Leaving

During her appearance on The One Show, River Song actress Alex Kingston was naturally asked about Doctor Who and the search for the Twelfth Doctor.

Of Matt Smith’s leaving Doctor Who, Kingston said:

“I wasn’t surprised because he and I had had a chat [about him leaving]. At some stage you have to move on. We did discuss when would be the right time in a young actor’s career if they were very associated with a particular role. You have to move on otherwise it becomes very difficult because you get typecast.”

Typically, Kingston was also quizzed about the possibility of a female Doctor. Her answer perhaps gave away more than she might have intended…

“I don’t think I could kiss her though… There’s always a first time isn’t there.”

So, despite Matt Smith leaving Doctor Who, is there more River Song to come…?
