River Song to play Dinah Lance...
Alex Kingston, best known as River Song on Doctor Who and Dr. Corday on ER, is set to play Laurel Lance's mother on Arrow. EW reports that Kingston will play Dinah Lance and will appear later on this season, returning to make amends with her family after she abandoned them five years earlier following the death of her daughter aboard Oliver Queen's yacht.
In DC comics, Dinah Lance was the original Black Canary and eventually Laurel took it over. No word on whether Kingston's Dinah will be Black Canary.
