In this issue, River Song actress Alex Kingston talks about keeping one of Doctor Who's biggest secrets and playing the Doctor's mysterious 'other' woman.
I knew who River was for quite a while and I was sworn to secrecy. And that is the thing that Karen and Arthur and Matt hated, because they knew I had a very big secret that I wasn’t divulging.
