Synopsis

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.

2.4 The Eye of the Storm by Matt Fitton

The Great Storm of 1703 approaches. The fate of planet Earth hangs in the balance.
The only person who can save it is the Doctor. Or River Song. Or quite possibly another Doctor. Or maybe this whole situation is their fault in the first place.

Two Doctors. One River. An infinite number of ways to destroy the world. It’s going to be a bumpy ride…

Notes

The Seventh Doctor says to River “at least I know you’re not Mother”.
This is the only non-Doctor Who audio story to date to feature both the Sixth and Seventh Doctors in the same story.
The Seventh Doctor handcuffs River. Once, when being taken away to prison, River asked the Eleventh Doctor if “must it always end this way?”, referring to the fact that one of them usually end up being handcuffed on their encounters. (Forest of the Dead, Flesh and Stone, Day of the Moon)
River has recently been pardoned of a crime. (The Time of Angels / Flesh and Stone, The Angels Take Manhattan)
River says she has about a dozen husbands at last count, but she’s referring to the Doctor’s incarnations. (The Husbands of River Song)
River talks about hiding her emotional pain from the Doctor. (The Angels Take Manhattan)
The Eighth Doctor would later remember these events. (Songs of Love)
