The episode will be titled “The Husbands of River Song” and feature the anticipated return of The Doctor’s wife, River Song (Alex Kingston).
But husbands? Plural? Hmm… Last time she was on the show, she only had one husband.
The episode synopsis doesn’t reveal what the many husbands means, but it does describe an adventure-filled special.
The Christmas special, which also guest stars Matt Lucas and Greg Davies, airs on Christmas Day. The final episode of season nine airs this Saturday, December 5th.
Read the synopsis and see the new photo below:
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?
What do you think? Do you watch Doctor Who? Are you excited to see the return of River Song? Will you be watching the Christmas special?
