Alex Kingston, best known to U.S. audiences for her role as Dr. Elizabeth Corday on "ER," told EW.com’s Inside TV blog that "Doctor Who" should be viewed by more children in the U.S.
Kingston, who plays Dr. River Song on the British sci-fi program, said "Doctor Who" is viewed as a children’s show in the U.K., and that American children’s programming could benefit from the series.
"Children’s programming in America, I think it’s pretty shoddy in terms of lack of diversity. It’s pretty much cartoons and Disney sort of shows," Kingston said. "I don’t find any of that stimulating for children. ‘Doctor Who’ is really challenging and fulfilling on so many levels."
