River Song

Moffat On River: Capaldi & Kingston “Hilarious together”

River Song, possibly the most divisive character in Doctor Who‘s 50 years, probably won’t be returning – unless Steven Moffat can mine more from a story that he has already told DWM is “probably done.”

While tempted, Doctor Who‘s big chief wonders if there is really anything new to matching Alex Kingston with new Time Lord Peter Capaldi.

I’m slightly tempted, because I imagine Peter Capaldi and Alex Kingston would be absolutely hilarious together…

She could certainly have met other Doctors. So there’s nothing stopping us… But is there anything new we can do? Or is the new thing that Peter Capaldi and Alex Kingston would be very sexy together? Is that enough? We’ve always had fun with the fact that they don’t look like a couple.

Peter Capaldi and Alex Kingston would look like a couple – that’s the thing.

Alex is just great fun to have on the show. It’s when you want to throw the Doctor a bit, because what River does so well is to make him a bit on the back foot and a bit flustered.

One thing is for sure: dropping the “Mrs Robinson” aspect of the relationship would help. What do you think?
