As Doctor Who‘s River Song, Kingston gave pathos and depth to an extremely complicated character. (She conveyed both heartbreak and heat in the Season 7 finale – remember that kiss with the Doctor?) Meanwhile, Lara Pulver left an indelible impression on Sherlock as Irene Adler and brought an intoxicating presence to Da Vinci’s Demons. (She’ll be seen early next year as the lover of Bond creator Ian Fleming in BBC AMERICA’s Fleming: The Man Who Would Be Bond.)
