BBC has released a new image and synopsis for the Doctor Who Christmas Special
The Doctor Who Christmas Special will star Peter Capaldi as the Doctor with Alex Kingston as River Song. It also features Greg Davies as King Hydroflax and Matt Lucas as Nardole.
Here’s the official synopsis:
It’s Christmas Day on a remote human colony and the Doctor is hiding from Christmas Carols and Comedy Antlers. 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 is furious, and his giant Robot bodyguard is out of control and coming for them all! Will Nardole survive? And when will River Song work out who the Doctor is?
All will be revealed on a starliner full of galactic super-villains and a destination the Doctor has been avoiding for a very long time
If you missed the post about where in River Song’s insanely confusing timeline this adventure takes place, Steven Moffat said this:
It doesn’t really matter, but for those who care it’s immediately after The Angels Take Manhattan: River’s just seen Matt Smith’s Doctor lose Amy and Rory, and obviously before The Name of the Doctor because she’s dead in that.
