Christmas Special The Husbands of River Song

Itโ€™s Christmas Day on a remote human colony and the Doctor is hiding from Christmas Carols and Comedy Antlers. But when a crashed spaceship calls upon the Doctor for help, he finds himself recruited into River Songโ€™s squad and hurled into a fast and frantic chase across the galaxy.

King Hydroflax (Greg Davies) is furious, and his giant Robot bodyguard is out of control and coming for them all! Will Nardole (Matt Lucas) survive? And when will River Song work out who the Doctor is?

All will be revealed on a starliner full of galactic super-villains and a destination the Doctor has been avoiding for a very long time.

    Oh I remember mission 2110! I’m pretty sure i saw another reused monster from it in the Rings of Akhaten.

    It’s the same model from Dinosaurs, the Mission 2110 game show of CBBC, simply recycled :/

    Assuming the title is right in saying ‘Husbands’ and not ‘Husband’, then that can only mean one thing –

    River Song’s a BIGAMIST !!!.

    I think the destination the doctor is avoiding is the singing towers of derilium where he and River had their last date before she goes to library and he will give her a new sonic screwdriver! Just a theory!

    It will be completely different because river won’t know that Capaldi is the doctor for a long time in the episode.

    You’ll find a timeline in the site already in all perspectives!

    Yes, I’m going to make an early New year resolution to make a note of trying put where River’s appearances come chronologically with the Doctor.
