DVR Alert: Alex Kingston is Scheduled for Thursday's Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson
Once again, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson (on CBS in the US) will be having a Doctor Who related guest this Thursday (6th January 2011). This time it is Alex Kingston (River Song). Although she is not listed (at the time of this writing) in the upcoming shows for free tickets (they are actually recording two shows on Thursday according to their website, one at 3pm with actor Gary Sinise and one at 4:15pm with actress Mila Kunis - the latter being sold out), it was announced that "River Song" would be on Thursday's show via Craig Ferguson's Twitter feed. In addition, the Doctor Who musical opening number ("cold open") which could not be aired last November has finally been cleared for this show.
I wouldn't be too concerned about her absence on the website, as with the last time when Matt Smith was scheduled to appear on the show (16th November 2010), he was not showing up on the site for the longest time. Perhaps this show was pre-recorded on another day? @CraigyFerg tweeted the following tweet on Monday:
Alex Kingston does show up as a guest on my DVR for Thursday night. Remember when programming your machine, even though it is Thursday night's show, technically it is Friday since it is on after midnight. Just beware of that when programming to record the show as you may accidentally record Wednesday night's show instead.
Special thanks to Andrea on Twitter @guitardis for bringing it to my attention on Monday.
