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.
Aside from her iconic turn in Doctor Who, Alex Kingston’s well known in both the UK and US for her regular roles in E.R., Arrow, Upstairs Downstairs, and The Knock.
In series three, River seeks to save the fifth incarnation of her husband the Doctor (Peter Davison) from Madame Kovarian (Frances Barber) - who just because she’s killed him once, doesn’t mean to stop trying.
3.1 - The Lady in the Lake by Nev Fountain.
On Terminus Prime, clients choose their own means of demise. Something exciting, meaningful, or heroic to end it all. But when River discovers that there are repeat customers, she knows something more is going on. She begins to uncover a cult with worrying abilities. Its members can apparently cheat death, and that’s not all they have in common with River.
3.2 - A Requiem for the Doctor by Jac Rayner.
River has joined the Doctor and his friend Brooke on their travels, and they stop off in 18th century Vienna. Brooke thinks history is dull. Until people start dying. Mozart’s legacy is not just his music. River has more than one mystery to solve before a killer is let loose on the people of Vienna - and on the Doctor.
3.3 - My Dinner with Andrew by John Dorney.
Welcome, Mesdames et Messieurs, to The Bumptious Gastropod. The most exclusive, most discreet dining experience outside the universe. For the restaurant exists beyond spacetime itself, and the usual rules of causality do not apply. Anything could happen. It is here that the Doctor has a date. With River Song. And with death.
3.4 - The Furies by Matt Fitton.
Stories of the Furies abound across the cosmos: vengeful spirits hounding guilty souls to death. Madame Kovarian taught them to a child raised in fear, trained to kill, and placed inside a spacesuit. Kovarian knows the universe’s greatest threat, the Doctor must be eliminated. An assassin was created for that purpose. But if Melody Pond has failed, Kovarian will simply have to try again.
