Doctor Who's Alex Kingston has teased a "juicy spoiler" ahead of the show's 60th-anniversary specials, which air next month.

The actress, who played the Doctor's wife River Song, answered burning questions from Doctor Who fans for Radio Times, where she revealed her knowledge of a very big spoiler.

"Am I keeping any juicy spoilers right now? Yes, I am actually, I'm keeping a juicy spoiler!" she said, adding: "Yes, that will be revealed, I would imagine, later in the year..."

The hit BBC show returns on Saturday, November 25, where David Tennant will make his highly anticipated appearance as The Fourteenth Doctor. Tennant will be joined for the three special episodes by Catherine Tate, who reprises her role as companion Donna Noble.

The upcoming specials also star How I Met Your Mother's Neil Patrick Harris, Harry Potter actress Miriam Margolyes and Heartstopper's Yasmin Finney.

As well as teasing future Doctor Who storylines, Kingston also reflected on her time on the show and listed some of her favourite episodes that she was a part of. "Every single episode that I was in was an absolute joy to film and we had so much fun on," she said.

"The very first episode I was ever in has to be for obvious reasons, and also the 'Husbands of River Song', that moment with Peter Capaldi when I suddenly realise who he is.

"That was such a hard moment to film because I had to – I knew obviously, as Alex – but I had to not know as River Song who he was until he says 'Hello, sweetie'. It was just very hard emotionally to kind of like, stay innocent of the knowledge."

She concluded: "I loved doing 'Let's Kill Hitler'. I loved that episode because it was just so out there. I mean, I don't know what goes on in Steven [Moffat]'s brain. He's an absolute genius. But no, it was brilliant. I mean, who doesn't love a banana?!"

Tennant's appearances will lead into the debut of Sex Education's Ncuti Gatwa as The Fifteenth Doctor, alongside Coronation Street's Millie Gibson as newest companion Ruby Sunday.

Doctor Who returns for three 60th anniversary specials from November 25. The show airs on BBC One in the UK and Disney+ elsewhere.

Classic episodes of Doctor Who will be made available via BBC iPlayer in the UK from November 1.
