River Song 5.2 Animal Instinct review

River Song’s fifth boxset continues with the second story, Roy Gill’s  Animal Instinct. This time River must deal with the Geoffrey Beevers incarnation of the Master, the earliest version encountered in this set.

River Song 5.1 The Bekdel Test review

With boxset number five, Alex Kingston’s River Song takes a rest from wandering back through the Doctor’s timeline in four new stories where she meets some of the incarnations of the Master.
