Big news for Doctor Who and Upstairs Downstairs fans – Alex Kingston, aka River Song, will be joining the cast of the next series of Upstairs Downstairs.
The former ER star, recently seen in the BBC’s Doctor Who Season dvd, will play Blanche Mottershead, the younger sister of Dame Eileen Atkins’ character Lady Holland.
“I simply couldn’t resist the opportunity to get inside the iconic 165 Eaton Place,” said Kingston, 48.
Her casting follows Dame Eileen’s announcement that she would not be returning for the next series.
The 77-year-old conceived the idea for the original 1970s series with fellow actress Jean Marsh but did not appear in it prior to its revival last year.
The new series, which begins shooting in October, will begin in 1938 and span the months leading up to the outbreak of World War II.
“Outside 165 Eaton Place, London and Europe are poised on the knife-edge of calamity,” said writer Heidi Thomas.
“Inside, there’s a whole world of dark and dangerous emotions to explore.”
“Heidi really has created a wonderfully, intriguing character in Blanche who will over time reveal some secrets of her own,” said Kingston.
