Notes

The Diary of River Song opens for the final time with four full-cast audio adventures, starring Alex Kingston, released today by Big Finish Productions.

The Diary of River Song – The Final Chapter

The Doctor’s wife is back in a brand-new box set of exciting audio drama which marks the end of the Diary of River Song series (although that doesn’t mean she won’t be back in the future… or the past!).

Joining Alex Kingston to endure an emotional séance, reunite with a clone of herself, and fight monsters old and new is an incredible guest cast, including Camille Coduri (Doctor Who), Nina Toussaint-White (The Feed), Joseph Millson (The Sarah Jane Adventures), Sarah-Jane Potts (Holby City), Alexandra Fletcher (Brookside) and Carol Royle (Life Without George).

The Worlds of Doctor Who – The Diary of River Song: The Orphan Quartet is now available to own as a collector’s edition 4-disc box set (on CD + download at £29.99) and as a digital download (at £22.99).

An old enemy hides beyond the universe, a desolate Cornish inn confronts the truth, a grieving mother holds onto a deadly memento of war, and has the Earth failed to notice it’s been invaded? Professor River Song must solve all this while dealing with a loss of her own.

The Wife of River Song by Lizzie Hopley

River Song is on an expedition seeking the Hive. Her sister is trapped in the ruins of the Hive. River Song is on honeymoon. Three realities meet.

Producer James Goss said: “River Song is such a brilliant character and we’ve tried to really honour her in these stories.

“Director David O’Mahony has gathered an amazing supporting cast for this box set – Sarah-Jane Potts playing River Song’s WIFE? Plus Joseph Millson and the Soap Legend that is Alex Fletcher as… a soap legend. And we were lucky enough to get Nina Toussaint-White back as River’s sister/bad angel Brooke.

“It’s been an honour to be allowed to look after River through a box set that’s about grief, pirates and robots.”

All the above prices include the special pre-order discount and are subject to change after general release.

For a very limited time, selected River Song audio adventures are up to 33% off.

Please note that Big Finish is currently operating a digital-first release schedule. The mailout of collector’s edition CDs will be delayed, but all purchases of this release unlock a digital copy that can be immediately downloaded or played on the Big Finish app from the release date.
