First Look: Doctor Who Christmas 2015

Now with the finale having aired, Clara Oswald departing the TARDIS for her own one with Ashildr, Peter Capaldi will return for his second Christmas special as the 12th Doctor in an episode titled, The Husbands Of River Song. So, you know who's back then ....

The general synopsis reads as ....

"It’s Christmas Day on a remote human colony and the Doctor is hiding from Christmas carols and comedy antlers," reads the synopsis for the festive episode. "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?"

Compared to the darkness in the latter half of the ninth series, this sounds somewhat lighter by comparison.

Rounding off the cast for this year's special include Phillip Rhys as Ramone, Rowan Polonski as the alien Flemming as well as Robert Curtis as Scratch, Anthony Cozens as Concierge, Chris Lew Kum Hoi as Alphonse and Nicole Smartt as Receptionist. As for the 'husbands' in question, both trailers released for this special kind of spoiled that one but looking at the pictures, I think it's a safe bet to say that both Peter Capaldi and Alex Kingston are going to make for a great brief partnership.
