Marriage on the cards for Doctor Who

DOCTOR Who actor David Tennant looks set to be married off in this year's Christmas special of the programme.

It was revealed in a new book that not only will the doctor, played by the Edinburgh-born actor, admit he is married, but viewers will also catch a glimpse of his possible successor.

The revelations came in a book by series producer Russell T Davies, which also features e-mails he had exchanged about the show.

Dr Who's wife in the Christmas special will be a character viewers have already seen – River Song, played by actress Alex Kingston. She appeared in a two-part episode shown earlier this year. David Morrissey, who played Gordon Brown in the drama The Deal, has been lined up as a replacement and will appear as a "second doctor" in the anticipated programme.

Mr Davies wrote: "We've cast Alex Kingston as River Song. Alex Kingston is the doctor's wife."
