Alex Kingston has said she didn’t realise how popular Doctor Who was when she was offered the part of the the mysterious character of River Song. The 47-year-old told Reader’s Digest, "I'm not allowed to breathe a word about the new storylines... otherwise, they take away my sonic screwdriver.”
She added: "When I was first offered the part, I had no idea how successful the new Doctor Who was because I was in the US. But as soon as I read the script, I fell in love with River. She provides a very complex link to the Doctor's life and ever since I saw Alien, a little bit of me has wanted to run around a spaceship shooting intergalactic monsters."
According to Steven “The Moff” Moffat, the truth behind the mystery of who River Song truly is will once and for all be revealed in Series 6, which Kingston was reportedly told long before even Matt Smith or the other main cast members were. It all adds to the excitement of the mystery!
