When River Song goes shopping for a whole load of unclaimed loyalty points, she uncovers secrets linked to her tangled past.

The Doctor arrives, and the mystery deepens. He is already exploring the universe with another companion – someone River knows nothing about.

Madame Kovarian has been busy, and this time she will not accept failure...

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...

Well written, finely acted and just downright entertaining, this is a story that needed telling. 10/10

We Are Cult

Having always felt more like the lead of her own show, rather than the guest star, it is no surprise that River Song has thrived on audio, courtesy of Big Finish. 5/5

Ian McArdell, Cultbox

I cannot recommend this box set enough, even if you [are] not that keen on River on TV, give this a go and you will be pleasantly surprised by her depth of character. 10/10

Planet Mondas

The Diary of River Song continues to bring the modern and classic eras of Doctor Who together expertly.

Doctor Who Reviews

With a story and structure that heavily ties into the Eleventh Doctor's era of stories, any fan that enjoyed the time hopping and intricate plotting (and even major plot elements) that shaped that era of the series will probably find something to enjoy in this set.

Doctor Who News

River Song continues to rule the worlds and these adventures proved to be very intriguing to listen to. I’m so impressed with the writers who must have huge storyboards and big brains to pull out all the stops in these stories... The storylines are complementary and each is a mini-mystery to get your heart and brain pumping.
