Alex Kingston appears to have teased fans once more about an appearance from River Song.
Speaking in a video with BBC America, she said: “I look forward to sharing more of [River] with you in the future, but… spoilers!”
Rumours have circulated that River will appear once more in Matt Smith’s final episode during the Christmas special, although there is the possibility that her character also carry over to Peter Capaldi’s series? With Moffat still in charge it most certainly is not out of the question.
Matt Smith completed filiming for the 2013 Doctor Who Christmas special on Saturday, October 5th. This of course means that he The Doctor has finally regenerated into his twelvth form which will be played by Peter Capaldi.
Show producer Marcus Wilson confirmed via Twitter that filming had wrapped on this year’s Christmas Special on Saturday:
“So it’s goodnight from me, and it’s goodnight from him. That’s a wrap. Christmas 2013. Thank you all.”
Derek Ritchie posted:
“That’s a wrap! Christmas is in the can, you lucky lucky people!!!”

The next series of Doctor Who will begin to air in January of next year, with Jenna Coleman returning to film Series 8 for an autumn 2014 broadcast. But for now, sad Doctor gifs all around:
Matt Smith’s time as the beloved eleventh Doctor is almost here and he recently revealed that his final episode, the 2013 christmas special, began filming today Sunday, September 8th.
Smith attended the GQ awards in London on Tuesday with a unually close shave. He told the press that he “did it for a film” and as a result will have to wear a wig during the filming of the Christmas Special. Although he said the wig ‘is a nightmare’ he added that he was extremely excited to shoot his final episode as the time traveling Doctor.
Smith’s buzz cut is due to him being cast in the Gosling-directed movie How To Catch A Monster, in which Smith will make his American movie debut as “a real lunatic” named Bones.
The haircut caused a bit of tension in the Who camp back in July. While at a film conference, Dr. Who writer and executive producer Steven Moffat saw Smith’s hair and said “Damn you and Ryan Gosling and your shaved head!”. Smith joked that he was applying fertilizer to his head to have his hair grown back by September. Smith explained, “I need a quiff!”
Smith will be succeeded by Glaswegian actor Peter Capaldi as the Twelth Doctor in the new year after Smith’s Doctor regenerates. Back in August, show writer and producer Steven Moffat revealed that the new Doctor will keep his Scottish accent and will be an “older, trickier and fiercer Doctor”.
