Doctor Who: The Husbands of River Song (2015)

It is 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 is furious, and his giant robot bodyguard is out of control and coming for them all! Will Nardole 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.

Alrighty, Doctor Who is back! I admit, I wasn’t really thinking much about the show leading up to its series 9 premiere despite enjoying series 8 immensely and Peter Capaldi’s Doctor (see tag for my thoughts on previous episodes) but I think it was for the best as I would probably go nuts waiting despite all the books on my TBR queue to keep me preoccupied and other offline matters. I put off posting my reviews just to coincide it with Sci-Fi Month because it just made sense 🙂
