Our favorite time-traveling archaeologist is back with four new adventures released today by Big Finish.
In The Diary of River Song: Two Rivers and a Firewall, listeners will follow River while she investigates her own tomb, a royal painting, the greatest shop in the universe, and the afterlife where she will be reunited with Proper Dave.
The last story, Firewall, take place after Song’s death in the Doctor Who episode, “Forest of the Dead” and explores her afterlife with Proper Dave and Charlotte.
Alex Kingston is back as River Song. She is joined by Merrin Dowley (Charlotte), Harry Peacock (Dave), Tome Alexander (Mr. Gari/Karla-Gard/Preacher), Paul Bazely (Mikhael), and Victoria Ekanoye (Anita/Iris).
The Diary of River Song: Two Rivers and a Firewall is directed by Ken Bentley and produced by David Richardson. The box set is composed of the following stories:
10.1 The Two Rivers by Tim Foley
River Song finds herself on an irresistible mission – investigating the tomb of the legendary River Song! Except the statues don’t resemble her and the tomb contains the body of someone very different… or does it?
10.2 Beauty on the Inside by Lizzie Hopley
It would seem to be a perfectly ordinary painting of a forgettable royal family – so why did a biochemist smuggle it out of a closed colony at the cost of her own life? River is determined to find out.
10.3 Black Friday by Lauren Mooney and Stewart Pringle
Omnia Forum might just be the greatest shop in the galaxy and it’s celebrating two hundred years at the heart of the retail sector. But when River attends the celebratory gala she finds it less ‘everything must go’ and more ‘everything has gone’… apart from the Autons.
10.4 Firewall by Barnaby Kay
River is living her dream life with her dream husband. But every paradise has a serpent and this husband might not quite be up to the task.
