News & Interviews for Doctor Who: The Husbands of River Song (2015 Christmas Special)
This year, instead of giving us a Christmas-themed story, the writers instead decided to give us all a Christmas present: the missing final chapter in the love story of the Doctor and River.
This story is pure sentimentality, and I mean that as a compliment. It's about who we love and how we love them and why we need people and when.
Really, though, the strength in this episode was in the interplay between Peter Capaldi and Alex Kingston.
Additionally, in one fell swoop, that final scene gave the viewers something we honestly never thought we'd see or even thought we should ask for: a true marriage between the Doctor and River.
'The Husbands Of River Song' acts as a fitting coda to the Doctor and River's relationship while still giving hope that this isn't the last we'll see of her.
