Known to many for her role as Dr Elizabeth Corday in ER, Alex Kingston is thrilled to be back for this year’s Doctor Who Christmas special.

Will that rumoured on-screen ‘sex storm’ between River Song and Peter Capaldi’s Doctor now come to fruition?

A year ago, the Democratic Party was like a zombie, staggering along, mostly obedient to Bush's demands for war, curtailing of civil rights, military buildup, and the siphoning of resources towards the elite.

Davies reportedly described the on-screen union of River and Capaldi’s Doctor as a potential “sex storm”, so has the special been sexed up?

“It’s a family show, but there have been moments on set where we’ve started to call it ‘Doctor Blue’,” admits Kingston with a laugh.

“River’s already established, so why not keep her within that respect and then bring in a new companion?

Because then you’ve got more people to interact and play with.” She credits Moffatt for writing such strong female characters, but she doesn’t foresee a female Doctor any time soon.

“I thought she was just a beautifully written character in a two-episode story arc, but Steven had other intentions and it’s a great opportunity for anyone to play,” remarks the English-born actress, who rose to fame after appearing in American medical drama ER.

“Partly because it’s in this fabulous world of science-fiction, so you get to run around and fight aliens and monsters and have this quick-fire dialogue.One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.
