Yippee! She's a VERY fine actress, excellent addition.
Alex Kingston of ER and Moll Flanders fame will guest in a Steven Moffat penned two-parter in series four of Doctor Who. The Beeb describes her role as "a mysterious character who meets The Doctor on an expedition to uncover the secrets of an abandoned library", and she'll be joined for the adventure by James Bond regular …
Hooray, the more Steven Moffat the better!
"Alex Kingston of ER and Moll Flanders"
Personally I remember her more for the fully "fleshed out" character in Essex Boys.
Like Peri, she has a couple of things going for her ;-)
(yes, I'm just a giggling school-boy and mine's coat with the really long scarf please)
And, let's face it, at least there is considerably less chance of gratuitous homosexuality in an episode which is not written by Russel Tea Lady. Torchwood jumped the shark after the first episode but has now sunk to new lows in the second series with everything being centered around just how gay Captain Jack is each week, they could rename it "Queer as Alien Folk".
Incidentally, it would be more newsworthy if there are any actors who are *not* in series 4 of Doctor Who.
Steven Moffat writing for Dr Who - Good Thing
Billie Piper coming back - Questionable thing.
Part of the big problem that I have with Martha Jones, was that Rose Tyler was still in the story. She was mentioned in every episode of the last series. Martha was very much in her shadow. We were never allowed to forget about Rose being the Doctor's love interest, and Martha just become the rebound shag that stuck around.
She was just someone for the Doctor to explain stuff to. Her 2 moments of Heroism were: Giving the Doctor a Pocket Watch (on -screen) and uniting the entire human race following a year long trek of the planet amid considerable danger (Off-Screen AND between episodes)

Dave's Second Law of SF states: "Any thespian made popular by a SF show, and leaving said SF show for "bigger things" and then returning to aforementioned SF show will cause said SF show to fail."(cf David Duchovny, Michael Shanks)
Dave's Third Law of SF states "Any SF show with Male and Female leads in a non-intimate relationship will fail when Fan pressure forces the 2 characters to become intimate for a non-plot reason." (X Files v Spaced, Babylon 5)
