Doctor Who - Hello Sweetie!!! River Song and NuWho Arrive At Big Finish

With this new announcement it is surely only time until we get stories for the NuWho Doctors but in the meantime we have some NuWho monsters and friends of The Doctor.  The biggest announcement is that Alex Kingston will be reprising her role as River Song for Big Finish in two box sets.  The first is The River Song Diaries and the second is Doom Coalition 2 starring Paul McGann.  Doom Coalition 2 should be interesting as she must help The Doctor by not meeting him.  Winston Churchill will be getting a box set played again by Ian McNeice.  This NuWho version will recall his exploits with the 9th, 10th and 11th Doctors.  The next box set will feature Big Finish Classic Doctor's 5 to 8 facing off against some familiar NuWho villains.  Even though I don't understand how the Sontarrans are new.  Below is the synopsis for the box sets that will be out in 2016.
Full press release from Big Finish.
