Doctor Who: The Husbands of River Song Broadcast Time Confirmed

The BBC have announced the air date and air time for the 2015 Christmas Special, The Husbands of River Song.

The Special will air in its traditional slot, on Christmas Day at 5.15pm on BBC One. That’s earlier than the past two Specials, but it’s the same time-slot that The Snowmen aired in back in 2012. The Husbands of River Song, penned by head writer Steven Moffat, lasts for 60 minutes and will finish at 6.15pm. 

It’s 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 (Greg Davies) is furious, and his giant Robot bodyguard is out-of-control and coming for them all! Will Nardole (Matt Lucas) 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.
