| The best Christmas Special yet!
The Husbands of River Song is my favorite Christmas Special Doctor Who episode yet. It's funny, emotional, and beautiful. The acting by Alex Kingston and Peter Capaldi is awesome, and Gold's music is stunning. I love this episode, its 100 times better than Last Christmas. My only criticism is that it was a little to over the top with sexual innuendos. I don't think we need to know about River Song's wife or about what River thinks of the Doctor's new body (overly sexual. a more subtle "how do I look?" would have been much better). A little is fine but this was too much. Also, the beginning was a bit too silly. Capaldi was ace through the whole episode, I loved the "carol singers will be criticized" part. Nods to Silence in the Library/Forest of the Dead from series 4 with some music from it too. Overall- awesome, 10/10
