Clara is gone, Deal with it- I tell myself as I try to recover from this season’s finale for Doctor Who, and while all good things must come to an end Doctor Who has taught us that not everything that happens is written in stone – River Song coming back for this year’s Christmas special is the perfect example! Just where in River’s timeline are we now? Make sure to watch the trailer before you head on to the next paragraph because we’re gonna travel in the TARDIS back a few seasons!
Now, here’s what we know. If you’re caught up you know there’s a new Sonic – maybe not in time to get one for Christmas but still exciting to see the Doctor get a new one. Now, while this may not be the case, there is a possibility that fishlike creature is none other than… JIM THE FISH (as mentioned in The Impossible Astronaut, S6E1 to establish where in time they stood). Who’s River’s robot husband with the swappable head?! King Hydroflax, could he be the “Nestene duplicate with a swappable head” she used to date?( as mentioned in The Big Bang, S5E13). Lots of references to past seasons in this upcoming episode that seems like the right amount of fun to help us heal from Clara’s departure.
If that wasn’t enough here you go, have a second trailer to the Christmas special!
The Husbands of River Song premieres December 25, 2015 on the BBC. I can’t wait, let us know how all of this makes you feel in the comments below or over @NerdworkTweets!
