Hello Sweetie, wife, companion, friend of The Doctor. Professor River Song returns this year in Doom Coalition 2 for another encounter with her sweetie in his Eighth incarnation played by Paul McGann once again. But interestingly enough with news that she will return next year in 2017 with her sweetie in not one, but two bodies. Embodied by Colin Baker and Sylvester McCoy, they will reprise their respective incarnations for an adventure together for a Multi-Doctor story involving River (it's about time she appeared in one). This will make her fifth/sixth known meeting of her sweetie in different bodies. The last time we heard the duo was her first encounter with The Eighth Doctor in The Diary of River Song released imediatly after The Husbands of River Somg where she met her sweetie in his Twelfth Incarnation which was quiet an anomaly for her.

Alex Kingston will return as River Song in the new year for four new adventures with two different Doctors!

Time travelling archaeologist and adventurer River Song will return on audio in 2017 – and this time she will be stepping into the past life of the Doctor, encountering two of his incarnations at once! Alex Kingston returns in The Diary of River Song: Series 2 alongside Colin Baker and Sylvester McCoy!

From the space exploration vessel Saturnius – which is heading to a destination that never gets any closer – 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.

'We’re thrilled to have both Colin Baker and Sylvester McCoy appearing alongside Alex in this box set,' says producer David Richardson. 'I can promise that River and the Doctor might not necessarily be working to the same agenda. In fact, the two Doctors might not be working to the same agenda either...'

The four hour-long adventures are The Unknown by Guy Adams, Five Twenty Nine by John Dorney, World Enough and Time by James Goss and Eye of the Storm by Matt Fitton. The impressive guest cast includes Anna Maxwell Martin (Midwinter of the Spirit, And Then There Were None, The Bletchley Circle), Jessie Buckley (War and Peace), Ann Bell (Tenko, Wallander), Robert Pugh (Game of Thrones, Mr Selfridge, Doctor Foster), Dan Starkey (Doctor Who, Wizards vs Aliens) and Barnaby Edwards (Doctor Who

Where ever she is going in his time line she always bumps into it and given since her introduction story was her end. It's refreshing Big Finish have taken on the character and working around it meeting her sweetie in different points of his life and it does wonder if she will be meeting The Fifth and Fourth Doctors at some point which wouldn't be a surprise.

From her life beginning with The Eleventh Doctor to the end with The Tenth Doctor. Her order in her time line maybe wrong with The Doctor but it doesn't mean that it doesn't make for interesting conversations when ever they meet. Will we ever see her again in the realms of TV who? Who knows, it's a show about time travel and anything can happen.
