Doctor Who Series 4 guest list

According to the official BBC site, this is now the list of confirmed guest stars for series 4:

  • Alex Kingston
  • Colin Salmon
  • Sarah Lancashire
  • Felicity Kendal
  • Lesley Sharp
  • Georgia Moffett
  • Lindsey Coulson
  • Fenella Woolgar
  • Tim McInnerny
  • Peter Capaldi
  • Phil Davis
  • Tracey Childs
Of which the only interesting one, that I've heard of, is Felicty Kendal.

However, more important is the mention of a new Steven Moffat penned two-parter, River Song "[Alex Kingston is] a mysterious character who meets The Doctor on an expedition to uncover the secrets of an abandoned library".

Can't we just get Steven Moffat to write the whole series please? Maybe Paul Cornell could chip in if Mr. Moffat gets tired.


Absolutely, the more Moffat the better - although his writing of the 5th doctor in Timecrash was rather a disappointment. The characterization was far more like the 6th Doctor.
