As River Song makes her way back through the Doctor’s incarnations, it’s time to for Alex Kingston to meet Tom Baker in The Diary of River Song Series 04. Four stories connected by a central idea, with the Doctor not arriving until the fourth (appropriately as it’s the Fourth Doctor).

First Doctor Adventures volume 2 review

I reviewed the splendid First Doctor Adventures Volume 2 for Cultbox in the inevitably named: Doctor Who: The First Doctor Adventures Volume 2 review.

Classic Doctors, New Monsters volume 2 review

I enjoyed the four stories in Classic Doctors, New Monsters Volume 2, and put my thoughts in a review for CultBox: Doctor Who: Classic Doctors, New Monsters Volume 2 review.
