Doctor Who Xmas Special Has A Big Moment

With River Song returning for this year’s “Doctor Who” Christmas special, entitled “The Husbands of River Song,” it seems the episode will also include a key moment first mentioned with the character’s first appearance (and death) in the “Silence in the Library/Forest of the Dead” two-parter.


That episode has a scene in which River describes The Doctor as having appeared “with a new haircut and a suit,” and giving her a new sonic screwdriver knowing that she’d ultimately be going to her death.

Blogtor Who has now posted a series of pictures from the London premiere of the special where several props from the episode including that specific sonic screwdriver River was given, and in a Christmas gift box to boot.

It certainly seems like Peter Capaldi’s Twelfth Doctor will be the one to send her to her end in what could well be her final appearance on the show.
