Much anticipated by fans of Doctor Who both old and new, Big Finish are delighted to welcome Alex Kingston back again to reprise her River Song character first seen in 2008 on TV.
When River visits a place where time has vanished, a genie escapes its bottle… the Discordia are freed-nihilistic time pirates, in devilish form, altering the past to make sure they never lose. This time, River may have met her match. And involving the Doctor can only make things worse.
4.1 Time in a Bottle by Emma Reeves and Matt Fitton. River is recruited by a rival to explore a star system where time no longer exists. Professor Jemima Still has picked up a signal from an impossible source and takes an expert team to investigate. But their mission is about to unleash hell upon the universe.
4.2 Kings of Infinite Space by Donald McLeary. With the Discordia on their tail, River and her friends run for their lives across time and space. But when your opponent can twist cause and effect to ensure victory at every turn, then escape may well be impossible.
4.3 Whodunnit? by Matt Fitton. Melody Malone finds herself in a Castle, with an assortment of strange companions. But guests are being murdered, one by one. Time is running out for a mystery to be solved. And Franz Kafka is hiding something in the attic.
4.4 Someone I Once Knew by John Dorney. River has tried in vain to keep the Discordia away from the Doctor. Now, as devils run riot through universal spacetime, her own past with her husband is being rewritten. There is one last hope for the universe. A love story - but one that must find an ending. Alex Kingston is well known in both the UK and US for her regular roles in E.R.,Arrow, Upstairs Downstairs, and The Knock.
River was seen as the Doctor’s wife in TV episode The Wedding of River Song, but her twisted timeline means she and the Doctor rarely see events from the same perspective! In series four, River encounters one of the most loved versions of her husband when the Fourth Doctor (hero of a generation of TV watchers) played by Tom Baker crosses paths with her.
