Doctor Who star Alex Kingston has discussed the possibility of signing up for a full season as the show’s regular companion.
Kingston told The Guardian: “I don’t know whether they would [have River join full-time] because in a sense I think what the fans love is she’ll come in for an adventure but then goes off again – so one can sort of spend one’s time imagining what she does when she’s not with the Doctor.”
She added: “I think if she were a constant companion I’m not sure whether the fans would enjoy that so much; it would take away from the opportunity for someone else to be a companion. I’d like it if she came back again but, yeah, I think it works best the way Steve [Moffat] has always interpreted their relationship.”
