The Doctor and River Song to reunite at Christmas

Alex Kingston is to return to the role of Professor River Song for the 2015 Doctor Who Christmas special.
It’s Christmas Day in the future and the TARDIS has landed on a snowy village street awaiting its next adventure. The Doctor then meets River Song for the first time in his current incarnation.
The Christmas special is written by Steven Moffat, executive produced by Brian Minchin, produced by Nikki Wilson and directed by Douglas Mackinnon.
River Song made her first Doctor Who appearance in 2008 in ‘Silence in the Library’ and has gone on to appear in 15 episodes so far.
Alex Kingston said about returning to the show: “To be honest, I did not know whether River would ever return to the show, but here she is, back with the Doctor for the Christmas special. Steven Moffat is on glittering form, giving us an episode filled with humor and surprise guest castings. I met Peter for the first time at Monday’s read through. We had a laugh, and I am now excited and ready to start filming with him and the Doctor Who team. Christmas in September?, why not!”
Steven Moffat said: “Another Christmas, another special for Doctor Who - and what could be more special than the return of Alex Kingston as Professor River Song? The last time the Doctor saw her, she was a ghost. The first time he met her, she died. So how can he be seeing her again? As ever, with the most complicated relationship in the universe, it’s a matter of time...”
