first_imgStay on target HBO Max Scores Exclusive ‘Doctor Who’ Streaming RightsJo Tro Do Plo Plo No: ‘Doctor Who’ Welcomes Back Familiar Monster You can’t keep a good woman down: River Song returns next year in four hour-long audio adventures from Big Finish.The incomparable Alex Kingston reprises her role as a time-traveling archeologist (who also happens to be the Doctor’s wife) for the ongoing tale of “The Diary of River Song.”Set for release in January, the Dickensian third season forces River to “face the demons of her past, present, and future,” including evil midwife Madame Kovarian (Frances Barber).Best remembered as the Eye-Patch Lady from season six of the BBC show, Kovarian is a close associate of the Silence, and the one responsible for transforming Melody Pond (a.k.a. River Song) into the perfect assassin to kill the Doctor.But this time, our heroine isn’t working alone. She teams up with Fifth Doctor Peter Davison (and his companion Brooke) for an action-packed series:3.1: “The Lady in the Lake” by Nev FountainRiver uncovers a cult with worrying abilities: Its members can apparently cheat death, and that’s not all they have in common with her.3.2: “A Requiem for the Doctor” by Jac RaynerTeam TARDIS visit 18th century Vienna, where River has more than one mystery to solve before a killer is let loose on the local people—and on the Doctor.3.3: “My Dinner with Andrew” by John DorneyAt the most exclusive, most discreet dining experience outside the universe, the usual rules of causality do not apply. It is here that the Doctor has a date. With River Song. And with death.3.4: “The Furies” by Matt FittonStories 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 to eliminate the Doctor.
