River Song Series 6

18 October 2018

More details can be revealed today about the next box set of The Diary of River Song. What adventures will River Song (played by Alex Kingston) be getting involved in this time?

After meeting five incarnations of the Doctor and four incarnations of the Doctor’s mortal enemy, the Master, while exploring time and space, River continues to travel the cosmos. However, she’ll be crashing into the Doctor’s timeline during some of the most famous Doctor Who stories of all time!

In further details on the sixth series of The Diary of River Song, we can reveal today that River Song will return to London but this time during an invasion of Abominable Snowmen!

Set during the classic Second Doctor television episode The Web of Fear, The Web of Time by John Dorney will see River using all her archaeological skills as she navigates the London Underground in search of… a painting.

With deadly webs and even more deadly Yeti, River Song will have to navigate an ancient invasion and prevent altering the course of time itself. Joining her in this adventure will be Ralph Watson, who played the character Captain Knight in The Web of Fear in 1968 – five decades ago!

Alex Kingston and Ralph Watson

Ralph tells us about returning to the role after 50 years: “It’s full of opportunities isn’t it? I can see an endless panorama of ways back and in and out… especially as it explores new territories, it’s not a revamp of something already done. Here there is a lot about people’s motives and actions, and River is closely examined... as well as me!”

And Alex Kingston told us how she feels about Doctor Who: “The Doctor and his assistants were very real to me (as a child), I still, to this day, look through the dark hole of the London Underground and expect threats like the Daleks coming through!”

Further details wanted on Series Six? Time will tell… but you can read more about the first episode of the set, The Talents of Greel, in the news story here.

You can pre-order Series Six and Series Seven of The Diary of River Song due for release in August 2019 and January 2020 at £25 on CD or £20 on download each. Or save money in a bundle – get Series Six and Seven together at £48 on CD or £40 on download.

Don't forget that in January next year we’ll see River facing off against four incarnations of the Master in The Diary of River Song Series Five.

The Doctor isn’t the only Time Lord River runs into on her travels up and down the timeline.

The Master, in all of his – or her – guises, also has a chequered history with Professor Song. And whenever they meet, it’s a close call as to who comes out on top...

It’s something River must get used to: there are three people in her marriage – at the very least!
