Alex Kingston stars in this 5CD set as River Song, the Doctor’s adventurous archaeologist wife, alongside Geoffrey Beevers as the Master, Eric Roberts as the Master, Derek Jacobi as the Master and Michelle Gomez as
the Master Missy.
A four-part anthology of adventures, with River facing a different incarnation of the Master in each. There’s a prison escape with Missy, an archaeological adventure with the decayed Master, a story of survival with the Bruce Master and a reckoning in deep space with the War Master… Each of the previous River Song series has featured the Doctor in some sense – this release sees River unshackled, going toe-to-toe with a big-name villain who is sure to give her a run for her money. Eric Roberts is on board in his first Doctor Who project since the TV Movie in 1996, and Michelle Gomez’s Missy becomes the first major Twelfh Doctor era character to receive the Big Finish treatment, lending this set an extra frisson of excitement.
