Next year, Alex Kingston's River Song will come up against not one, but four, faces of The Master in her continuing series of Whoniverse audio adventures.
Michelle Gomez returns as the deliciously bonkers Missy, with Eric Roberts recreating his turn as The Master from the American Doctor Who movie, Derek Jacobi as The War Master (and future Professor Yana), and Geoffrey Beevers, who first played The Master in 1981's The Keeper Of Traken.
These encounters will be chronicled in series five of Big Finish's The Diary Of River Song, which is scheduled to arrive in January 2019.
The box set of full-cast plays includes:
- The Bekdel Test by Jonathan Morris
- Animal Instinct by Roy Gill
- The Lifeboat and the Deathboat by Eddie Robson
- Concealed Weapon by Scott Handcock
Prior to that, in August, in her ongoing voyage through the lives of her husband, River is due to encounter The Fourth Doctor (played as ever by the powerhouse that is Tom Baker) in series four of her audio diaries.
