I collect the Doctor Who Christmas specials. The Husbands of River Song had that Christmas feel in the beginning but took a different twist which gave some background to the Doctor Who series along with the bonus features. I think Matt Smith was the best Doctor. I don’t know why they changed the character so quickly.

First, I am a Doctor Who fan. And, I try to acquire every single DVD. So, I simply had to add this to my collection. Also, I don't know how you feel about the latest Doctor (Scottish actor Peter Capaldi). However, I do feel this episode is well worth having. This episode really adds to the character development of both the twelfth Doctor, and River Song. And, the simple adventure, and feel-good silliness, of this episode is right at home in a DW Christmas episode.
River Song returns to the world of Doctor Who for another fun-filled Christmas Special, detailing the events that occurred just before her initial introduction in the episode Silence in the Library. Fun-filled with lots of action and humor, this episode does not disappoint!
I know not a lot of people are fans of Capaldi but he did a great job in this and Alex Kingston, as always, steals the episode as River Song. She is one of my all-time favorite characters in this series and anytime they bring her back is something I enjoy. The secondary characters were great additions and helped make this one of the top Doctor Who specials in my opinion. I highly recommend this to any fan of the Doctor.
It's great to see an entertaining wrap-up to the love story of River Song and The Doctor, one that gives viewers another perspective of The Doctor's (6 season?) long relationship with a woman who is definitely up to the challenge and the best match the series ever found for him, no matter how much you like Rose Tyler. If you're a fan of River Song, this is a must-see.
River Song is back in the 2015 Christmas special. The interaction between the 12th Doctor and River is great. All the sassy interaction is there, as well as a tear-jerker moment. I don't want to give away any spoilers, Sweetie, but I will say it's a fun story that actually fills in a lot of holes in the River Song saga.
dr who fan so oc loved the video. hope not the last we see of river. do miss matt smith, but thought story was good, interesting, river very much river. still deciding whether I like this dr, think will. good to see some of the romance between dr & river, the dr does care about her, how could she not think he does?
I have always been a big fan of the character River Song, whenever she showed up in the series you knew you were in for a special episode. This holiday special is no different. Probably my second favorite of all the holiday specials in the Who Series, my favorite being A Christmas Carol.
