Discover who ‘The Husbands of River Song’ are in new DOCTOR WHO preview!
With the return of Alex Kingston known to the fandom, the name of the upcoming Doctor Who Christmas special still threw us for a bit of a loop. ‘The Husbands of River Song’ sees the return of the infamous character, the daughter of Amy and Rory Pond with Timelord DNA whose timeline is going in the opposite direction of The Doctor’s own (infamously, she dies on the day The Doctor first meets her, in his timeline). She’s in a sticky spot and needs The Doctor’s help to save Christmas and, you know… her life.
We know that The Doctor is one of River Song’s husband mentioned in the title, but this preview also unveils the other one: The evil King Hydroflax!
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’ airs on BBC and BBC America on Christmas Day, December 25, 2015.
