B022 The Husbands of River Song – The 2015 Christmas Special


A pointless sidekick, an inconsistent robot and a massive get-out-of-jail-free card. Fun!

Ho-Ho-Ho, y’all! This time – slightly belatedly – we take a look at the 2015 Christmas Special, The Husbands of River Song. This second Christmas Special with Peter Capaldi sees The Twelfth Doctor (re)unite with his future/past wife, River Song, as they race across space and time with the head of her prior/later husband, King Hydroflax, and the priceless diamond inside it.

Have a listen as we debate such points as:

  • Where and when does this fit into the chronology of River Song?
  • How many references to Classic and New Who did we catch?
  • How did River and Hydroflax have ‘many nights of passion’ when he’s just a talking head?
  • And was this the ‘thrill ride across the galaxy’ that we were promised?

And much, much more…

Oh, and check out the screenshot of River holding up a Fez in this episode here below! Because Fezes are cool.
