Story and cast details revealed for The Diary of River Song series 7, featuring Alex Kingston reprising her role in four thrilling new full cast audio adventures due for release in January 2020.
In The Diary of River Song Series 07, River song turns detective facing Weeping Angels and finding herself, perhaps unsurprisingly, on the wrong side of the law...
River Song finds many amusements away from the Doctor. Not least of them is solving impossible mysteries, cracking insoluble crimes.
Sometimes she’s Melody, sometimes she’s River, but she’ll always unravel the case…
Alex Kingston said: “I feel really lucky because one day I'm in a Scandi Noir, the next I'm back being Melody Malone in New York, investigating a murder. Then it's nuns with guns and buns, with a largely female cast, and - finally - facing the Weeping Angels. I'm really thrilled, because it's quite rare for River to encounter some of her old foes in the audio adventures.
“I’ve been given the most incredible gift, because River’s diary can go on forever. The fact that she wrote down and kept track of all of her adventures back and forth in time, and across the universe, means the writers can keep inventing new stories for her. It really is the gift that keeps on giving.”
Four stories are included in this new series:
Colony of Strangers by James Goss
On the bleak Nordic colony of Bondar, bodies are washing up on the beach. The Mayor and the police are mystified. But then a prime suspect turns up. A suspect who might be their best hope of solving the case.
Abbey of Heretics by Lizbeth Myles
Outside the walls of a remote 12th Century Abbey, England is at war. Inside, a strange sickness runs rife, and there are rumours of a devil in the woods. Death stalks the novices. When Sister Melody arrives in search of a book, she may be their only salvation.
Barrister to the Stars by James Kettle
River stands accused of murder. Her one hope is being allowed to choose the legal system under which she’ll be tried. Enter Roger Hodgkiss: curmudgeonly barrister, plucked from a 20th Century English courtroom. He may be out of his depth, but he’ll always stand up for the underdog.
Carnival of Angels by Roy Gill
New York. 1950s. Melody Malone is new in town and her detective agency is called on to solve an impossible murder. River’s investigations lead her to a curious carnival ride, offering trips to either Heaven or Hell. But with Angels in waiting, Heaven may not be the best choice…
