The Christmas special will be called ‘The Husbands of River Song’ so Alex Kingston will be reprising her role as River Song alongside Greg Davies (Man Down, The Inbetweeners) and Matt Lucas (Shooting Stars, Little Britain) who have also been announced.
And what will the Doctor be getting up to in the festive period?
It’s Christmas Day on a remote human colony and the Doctor is hiding from carols and comedy antlers. But when the Time Lord’s help is requested 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 work out who the Doctor is?
All will be revealed on a starliner full of galactic super-villains and at a destination the Doctor has been avoiding for a very long time…
Out of control giant robot bodyguard? Sounds like another crazy adventure for the Doctor!
The Christmas special is written by Lead Writer and Executive Producer, Steven Moffat, produced by Nikki Wilson and directed by Douglas Mackinnon (Doctor Who, Sherlock) and will air at 5:15 pm Christmas day.
