Alex Kingston began her career with a recurring role on the BBC teen drama Grange Hill. After appearing in such films as The Cook, the Thief, His Wife & Her Lover and A Pin for the Butterfly, Kingston began appearing on the long-running medical drama ER in September of 1997. She first appeared in the premiere episode of the fourth season, the award-winning live episode “Ambush” where she portrayed British surgeon, Elizabeth Corday. Her character proved to be incredibly popular, appearing on the series for just over seven seasons until leaving in October 2004. Kingston did return to the role in spring 2009 during ER’s 15th and final season for two episodes. Kingston continued to entertain US audiences in November 2005, when she guest-starred in the long-running mystery drama Without a Trace.

Not limiting her talents to the screen, in 2006, Kingston starred as Nurse Ratched, opposite Christian Slater as Randle Patrick McMurphy, in the Garrick Theatre’s West End production of One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.

2008 saw Kingston in one of her most beloved recurring roles to genre fans when she guest-starred in the fourth series of Doctor Who. Her debut as the character River Song was in the two-part episode “Silence in the Library”/”Forest of the Dead.” Originally thought to be a one-off, River Song was such a hit with fans she has since appeared in fifteen episodes of the series and counting.

Colin Baker is best known for his role as the sixth incarnation of the Doctor in the long-running science fiction television series Doctor Who from 1984 to 1986.
