River Song

  • The Diary of River Song Vol. 1 (1)

    1.1 The Boundless Sea by Jenny T Colgan

    River Song has had more than enough excitement for a while. Deciding the universe – and her husband – can look after themselves, she has immersed herself in early 20th century academia, absorbed in writing archaeological theses.

    But when a mysterious tomb is found in a dry, distant land, excitement comes looking for River.

    Can Professor Song stop any more members of the expedition from dying? What deadly secrets lie buried within the crypt? And will British Consul Bertie Potts prove to be a help, or a hindrance?

    1.2 I Went to a Marvellous Party by Justin Richards

    River Song always enjoys a good party, even when she’s not entirely sure where or when the party is taking place. But the party she ends up at is one where not everything – or indeed everyone – is what it seems…

    Being River, it doesn’t take her too long to go exploring, and it doesn’t take her too long to get into trouble. The sort of trouble that involves manipulating other civilisations, exploitation, and of course murder.

    River is confident she can find the killer. But can she identify them before anyone else – or quite possibly everyone else – gets killed?

    1.3 Signs by James Goss

    River Song is on the trail of the mysterious, planet-killing SporeShips.

    Nobody knows where they come from. Nobody knows why they are here. All they do know is that wherever the SporeShips appear, whole civilisations are reduced to mulch.

    But River has help. Her companion is a handsome time-travelling stranger, someone with specialist knowledge of the oddities and dangers the universe has to offer. For Mr Song has a connection to River’s future, and he would never want his wife to face those perils alone…

    1.4 The Rulers of the Universe by Matt Fitton

    As shocking secrets are exposed, and a grand plan for the universe is revealed, River decides it’s time she took control of events once and for all.

    Out in deep space, a clandestine society faces off with an ancient and powerful alien force – but, for River, there’s an added complication.

    The Eighth Doctor has been caught in the middle, and she must make sure her future husband can arrive at his own destiny with all his memories – not to mention his lives – intact…

    2.1 The Unknown by Guy Adams

    A planetary anomaly. A scientific impossibility. A mystery to be solved. Of course, River Song expects to be consulted. She expects her valuable knowledge and experience will help the crew of the Saturnius unlock the strange phenomenon that has appeared in Earth’s solar system. But what River doesn’t expect is a stowaway. An infuriating little man, calling himself the Doctor.

    2.2 Five Twenty-Nine by John Dorney

    River has made a terrible discovery. Billions of lives hang in the balance. But if she can save just a few, then it might just help her solve the conundrum of Earth’s destruction. But how can she win when survival becomes a race against time itself? A race against Five Twenty-Nine?

    2.3 World Enough and Time by James Goss

    When it comes to bringing down corrupt and exploitative regimes, there is no-one quite like River. Until she arrives at Golden Futures and discovers that someone else has already taken on her job. Someone with almost as much style and panache as herself. The Doctor is about to get the shock of his lives.

    2.4 The Eye of the Storm by Matt Fitton

    The Great Storm of 1703 approaches. The fate of planet Earth hangs in the balance. The only person who can save it is the Doctor. Or River Song. Or quite possibly another Doctor. Or maybe this whole situation is their fault in the first place. Two Doctors. One River. An infinite number of ways to destroy the world. It’s going to be a bumpy ride…

    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…
