The actress who will soon be appearing in BBC drama Upstairs Downstairs, spoke of her love for the legendary sci-fi show during an interview with Graham Norton, which will be aired this evening.
“You may see her again. Who knows?” she said when Norton asked if we’d seen the last of River Song. “Let’s just say, Upstairs Downstairs and Doctor Who don’t film at the same time.”
She then went on to explain that she had known that her character was the daughter of Amy Pond long before it was revealed to fans.
“I knew…for the whole of the last series,” she admitted. “The other actors didn’t know and were constantly trying to get it out of me. They discovered it in that episode [A Good Man Goes to War] when they read the script.”
