The Husbands of River Song

This Christmas, the Doctor is reunited with his wife! Well, one of them, anyway. The only trouble is, she doesn’t seem to know who he is...
A Christmas surprise for the Doctor!

Now that the latest series has finished airing, you’d think that showrunner Steven Moffat might get to take a holiday.

A Victorian-set Christmas episode, The Abominable Bride, airs on New Year’s Day. “Looking at next year, I’ve got 13 episodes of Doctor Who to make, three Sherlocks, and eight episodes of Class [BBC Three’s new Doctor Who spin-off]. I think it’s going to kill me. This time next year, I’ll be talking to you from inside a box.” He laughs, possibly through gritted teeth. “No, let’s hope that’s not true.”

We’re speaking to Steven about this December’s Doctor Who Christmas Special, The Husbands of River Song, down the line from Melbourne – as if to prove how insanely busy he is – where, along with Peter Capaldi, Osgood actress Ingrid Oliver, and Seventh Doctor Sylvester McCoy, he’s been a guest of honour at Australia’s first Doctor Who Festival.
