Our favorite archaeologist is back for more adventures in The Diary of River Song Series 07!
Alex Kingston resumes her role as Professor River Song in four new adventures. This time, she is solving crimes. Kingston is joined by Charles Armstrong (Karl), Annette Badland (Judge/Computer), Timothy Blore (Luke Sullieman), and more. The stories are written by Lizbeth Myles, Roy Gill, James Kettle, and James Goss, directed by Ken Bentley.
The synopsis of the four episodes are:
River Song finds many amusements away from the Doctor. Not least of them is solving impossible mysteries, cracking insoluble crimes. Sometimes she’s Melody, sometimes she’s River, but she’ll always unravel the case.
7.1 “Colony of Strangers” by James Goss
On the bleak Nordic colony of Bondar, bodies are washing up on the beach. The Mayor and the police are mystified. But then a prime suspect turns up. A suspect who might be their best hope of solving the case.
7.2 “Abbey of Heretics” by Lizbeth Myles
Outside the walls of a remote 12th Century Abbey, England is at war. Inside, a strange sickness runs rife, and there are rumors of a devil in the woods. Death stalks the novices. When Sister Melody arrives in search of a book, she may be their only salvation.
7.3 “Barrister to the Stars” by James Kettle
River stands accused of murder. Her one hope is being allowed to choose the legal system under which she’ll be tried. Enter Roger Hodgkiss: curmudgeonly barrister plucked from a 20th Century English courtroom. He may be out of his depth, but he’ll always stand up for the underdog.
7.4 “Carnival of Angels” by Roy Gill
New York. The 1930s. Melody Malone is new in town, and her detective agency is called on to solve an impossible murder. River’s investigations lead her to a curious carnival ride, offering trips to either Heaven or Hell. But with Angels in waiting, Heaven may not be the best choice.
The boxset is composed of five discs and is available as cd and download. It can also be bought as a bundle with The Diary of River Song Series 06 at an advantageous price. You can order it on the website.
