The Unknown was the first story of the audio anthology, The Diary of River Song: Series Two, produced by Big Finish Productions. It was written by Guy Adams and featured Alex Kingston as River Song and Sylvester McCoy as the Seventh Doctor.

Publisher's summary Edit

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.

The Doctor Edit

River Song Edit

  • Even when her memories are interrupted by the numerous temporal anomalies, the name "the Doctor" rings a bell somehow.

Technology Edit

Plants Edit

  • According to River, during cultivation of Earth plant species on other worlds, the oak tree could never thrive.

Notes Edit

  • As a possible joke on the actor's surname, in conversation with the Seventh Doctor, she remarks "you're rather coy".
  • The character of Maddie Bower was named after a 10 year old fan called "Madison Bower". Guy Adams met her aunt, and decided to do this because he though it would have been something that would have pleased him, if he had been her age. (VOR 95)
