Tonight saw a special night out for River Song and her husbands with a screening at the BFI Southbank in London of this year’s Doctor Who Christmas Special – The Husbands of River Song.
Twelfth Doctor Peter Capaldi, Alex Kingston and one of this year’s special guest stars Greg Davies (King Hydroflax) posed happily for photos in front of a snow covered TARDIS. There was a kiss under the mistletoe for Alex from her husbands but not such a warm welcome for any passing carol singers.
The Husbands of River Song
It’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 Song’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.
The Husbands of River Song will air on BBC One and BBC America on Christmas Day.
