Can you trust River Song? That’s the question that’s been on the Doctor’s mind ever since he (from his point of view) first met her in 2008’s Silence in the Library/ Forest of the Dead. And now, UNIT will be asking that same question, when Kate Stewart, Osgood, and co. meet Alex Kingston’s much-loved character.
The Diary of River Song: Series 5 is released very soon, but if you’re looking for a further fix of the Doctor’s time-travelling wife with a penchant for guns, she’ll be going head-to-head with the UNified Intelligence Taskforce in April’s UNIT: Incursions.
And Big Finish teases that this is a battle not everyone will survive…
River Song finds herself on the opposing side of the team, comprised of
Kate Stewart (Jemma Redgrave), Osgood (Ingrid Oliver), Josh Carter (James Joyce), and Sam Bishop (Warren Brown) .
The boxset includes:
- This Sleep of Death by Jonathan Morris
- Tempest by Lisa McMullin
- The Power of River Song (a two-part story) by Guy Adams
Morris’ tale is a follow-up to the Main Range title, Static (which starred Colin Baker’s Sixth Doctor, Miranda Raison’s Constance Clarke, and Lisa Greenwood’s Flip Jackson).
Tempest finds UNIT on a mission in Scotland where oil rigs are under threat in the Hebrides, and there’s a chilling breeze in the air.
Then The Power of River Song sees the team helping a scientific project for total renewable energy, led by a mysterious curly-haired director. And on this mission, one of the team will make the ultimate sacrifice for time itself…
UNIT: Incursions will be released in April 2019. We’ll bring you more details as soon as we get them.
