    Doctor Who Christmas

    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. Get a copy for yourself and check out some of the other Sci-fi classics on the Best Buy website. You will be surprised to find out what Best Buy has and some new titles to spark your interest.

    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.

    The Doctor Who Christmas Specials have been an annual tradition since the series return in 2005. The Husbands of River Song is the 11th Christmas Special, after last years weak outing (IMHO) this one was brilliant. The Doctor comes across River Song on another of her schemes and is pleasantly surprised when she doesn't recognize him. He gets to see River in action when he isn't around and there's some great Peter Capaldi/Alex Kingston interaction.

    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.

    Great Farewell to River Song

    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.

    It was fun seeing River Song back, even know the whole special kept reminding us she going to die sometime in the near future. Knowing that made the whole thing more depressing but they threw in a kinda happy ending. It was a ok watch, I don't mind Doctor who Christmas specials but they're not my favorite doctor who material.

    River Song is back!

    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.

    Why'd I purchase this DVD? Spoilers? No worries - not here. There's more to discover regarding the tale of River Song and how her life is entwined with the Doctor. Seasons 1 - 8 are bound to be classics in their own right. Of course the Holiday specials are just great fun to bring out during the actual holidays.
