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.

Critic Reviews for Doctor Who: The Husbands of River Song (2015 Christmas Special)

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (4)

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.

Conviviality served to represent something of a new start for the Doctor -- a chance to wash away the gloom of series (season) nine... and have a well-deserved laugh.

'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.

January 4, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The Husbands of River Song, contrary to its predecessors, actually carries all the hallmarks of being a substantial installment, rather than a bit of festive fluff.

December 31, 2015 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

"The Husbands of River Song" dumbed River down because the story needed her to be ignorant, something that doesn't line up with the woman we know.

December 30, 2015 | Full Review…

"The Husbands of River Song" feels more akin to a Davies-era Christmas installment-it bounces along carelessly like a hyper child on a sugar high only to suddenly swerve into an emotional conclusion.
