This weekend bring us, well, Christmas.
And with Christmas? Some piping fresh DOCTOR WHO, via an episode entitled The Husbands of River Song.
Husbands unites CapalidDoc with River Song (the returning Alex Kingston) for a decidedly rompy sounding adventure. My biggest question about this one is: a long time ago, in the Moffat-scripted Silence in the Library / Forest of the Dead, I seem to recall River mentioning having previously encountered the Doctor when he was older. When he had ‘a face that could command an army,’ or something like that? Thus, I’m wondering if the encounter she refers to in those episodes might refer to this encounter…and be part of some Moffaty master plan…as Husbands apparently represents her first time meeting this (decidely 'older') incarnation of the Doctor character.
As mentioned above, The Husbands of River Song is scripted by show overlord Steven Moffat. It’s helmed by Douglas Mackinnon, who previously brought us several exceptional episodes of DOCTOR WHO, including Time Heist, Flatline, and Listen in Series/Season 8.
In the gallery below, you’ll find official publicity images from this installment. As always, be sure to keep an eye on the discussion thread below for embedded clips and images from not only Husbands, but all things WHO.
The Husbands of River Song discussion thread is now fully operational! So step on in, and chat about all things WHO. And, on this meaningful Holiday Season, join with fellow WHOvians from near and from far to ponder deeply reflective and utterly consequential questions like: what the hell is up with Moffat and sentient, portable heads?
PLEASE NOTE: We warmly invite and encourage an open discourse and free exchange of ideas, but will enforce a strict zero tolerance policy regarding trolling, disrespect, or hate speak of any kind.
In the coming weeks, I’ll be revisiting some classic DOCTOR WHO episodes from a new perspective, and continue getting to know the show even better still by diving into stories I’ve yet to see. So, please be sure to stay tuned! There's much more yet to be done here...
Peace on Earth, and wherever we may travel...
