Alex Kingston, known by genre fans as Doctor Who’s River Song, is about to enter the Arrow universe.

The British actress has signed up to play Laurel’s Mother Dinah Lance, according to a recent report from EW. The role, which is said to be recurring will see Dinah making a return to Starling City to make amends with her estranged ex-husband Detective Quentin (Paul Blackthorne) and daughter Laurel (Katie Cassidy).

According to the report, light will be shed on Dinah’s leave-taking many years ago, which is connected to her daughter’s tragic death on board Oliver Queen’s yacht.

Arrow currently airs Wednesdays on the CW.

More as we have it.
