DOCTOR WHO Releases Christmas Special, River Song Appearance Details

Even more of River Song’s past will come to light in DOCTOR WHO’s Christmas special!

Not only is Alex Kingston returning to Doctor Who as River Song one more time, it seems she’ll be the focal point of her upcoming episode! …Or at least, her love life will be!

BBC One has announced that the official title for the special airing December 25th will be ‘The Husbands of River Song‘.

Of course, among those husbands is The Doctor himself, so things are bound to get messy as the two race through space and time to solve a mystery we don’t know much about.

On top of the episode title, we’re also getting a new poster for a special, which shows River Song and The Doctor facing off against a robot bodyguard. Are those screwdrivers we spy?!

Official Episode Synopsis:

“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?”

‘The Husband of River Song’ will air on Christmas Day.
