Time travelling archaeologist and adventurer River Song returns. From the space exploration vessel Saturnius, to a doomed planet Earth and beyond, River’s journey will bring her closer to a new foe, and an encounter with both the Sixth and Seventh Doctors.

The Unknown

Written 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.

Five Twenty-Nine

Written by Guy Adams

River has made a terrifying discovery. Billions of lives hang in the balance. 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?

World Enough and Time

Written 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 Eye of the Storm

Written by Matt Fitton

The Great Storm of 1703 approaches and 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?
