Alex Kingston will be returning to the Doctor Who fold sooner rather than later as The Diary of River Song will become available on Boxing Day (26th December) from Big Finish.
Hot on the heels of her appearance in this year’s Christmas Special, The Husbands of River Song, the time travelling archaeologist will make her Big Finish debut in her spin-off series!
The collection of four new stories will see River confront an ancient Egyptian curse, enjoy a marvellous party on a very exclusive space-station, tackle the threat of the world-ending SporeShips, and make a date with her future husband, the Eighth Doctor (Paul McGann).
Guest stars in the new series include Alexander Vlahos as Bertie Potts, Alexander Siddig as Marcus Gifford, Imogen Stubbs as Isabella Clerkwell and Samuel West as the mysterious Mr Song. The stories have been written by Jenny T Colgan, Justin Richards, James Goss and Matt Fitton and directed by Ken Bentley.
The Diary of River Song: Series 1 can be pre-ordered today for just £20 on both CD or download from the Big Finish website. The title will be available to download on Boxing Day 2015, followed by physical copies being dispatched from our warehouse from January 8th 2016.
The set is also available as part of Big Finish’s New Series Bundle, which contains fellow January 2016 release Doctor Who: The Churchill Years Volume 1 and the July 2016 boxset Doctor Who: Classic Doctors, New Monsters Volume 1.
River will return to Big Finish in Doctor Who: Doom Coalition 2, accompanying the Eighth Doctor (Paul McGann), Liv Chenka (Nicola Walker) and Helen Sinclair (Hattie Morahan) in their next battle with the Eleven (Mark Bonnar).
And, as if you needed reminding, River Song will appear alongside Peter Capaldi’s Twelfth Doctor this Christmas Day in The Husbands of River Song at 17:15 on BBC 1.
