Get More: Casting News, Exclusive

Another woman of substance is about to enter Leroy Jethro Gibbs’ orbit on CBS’ NCIS — and what’s more, he’s going to need her badly.

ER and Doctor Who vet Alex Kingston has been cast in the Nov. 27 episode of TV’s most watched drama series as Miranda Pennebaker, a “woman of questionable morals,” series boss Gary Glasberg tells TVLine exclusively.

Pennebaker, Glasberg previews, “deals in everything from high end weapons sales to priceless gems. Her connections go all the way up the ladder of D.C. politics, and Gibbs needs her for this very disturbing, emotional case.”

In fact, Kingston’s character proves so valuable, she is already being eyed for an encore. ” I’m a huge fan of Alex’s and she embodies everything I hoped for from this character,” says Glasberg. “Heck, you might even see her again.”

In addition to her runs as Doctor Who‘s River Song (who resurfaced just last Friday) and ER‘s Dr. Corday, Kingston’s TV credits include Upstairs, Downstairs, Law & Order: SVU, Private Practice and FlashForward.

NCIS of course airs Tuesday at 8/7c, where this week it repeated as the night’s most watched and highest-rated program.

  • John Barrowman would make a great guest – double agent or something using his Scottish accent. Especially since in some pictures he looks a lot like Mark Harmon. Like the way this segwayed into a discussion on Dr. Who.

  • I have to agree leave the romance stuff out, an just to crime solving, Gibbs does better without the love interest

  • This episode was great with Alex Kingston. I loved the little play on words when she made the statement to Gibbs that; “She kept a toe in the pond.” Great stuff……River Song aka Melodie Pond. Ya gotta love it! She is such a superb actress.

  • I have to agree about the love interest stuff. Especially with Jamie Lee Curtis. That was just so disagreeable.

  • Why do they have to spoil the show by bringing in Alex Kingston? I totally detest this woman to the point that I am unable to watch anything with her in. She wrecked Dr Who, she was crap in ER. Why oh why oh why do people keep hiring this idiot. Please please do not make her a semi regular or even worse a regular. I love NCIS but I cannot watch if this women is in it.
